@gavin-rumsey bugger loss that game easily been a win ha weird one
It was. I followed quite closely. It was one of those where the chase was straightforward but at no point in either innings could anyone accelerate. So India realised this and managed themselves over the line.
In hindsight the 1.02/1.03 lay was on over and over as there was always going to a wicket or low scoring over around the corner.
ENG lost 5 consecutive ODIS
SA 2-0 up in series, and need to win to try to ensure qualification for WC.
ENG look disinterested with what looks like burn out for the likes of Buttler,Curran,Roy. Archer being nursed back at 80%.
Yet ENG are faves at 1.84.
record since Buttler was installed as Eoin Morgan's permanent successor last year currently reads: P11 W2 L8.
Be interesting to see what happens at Toss with another early start at Kimberly - if ENG bat first then can see the ball moving around and easy Lay for a decent profit .
It was really tough to bat in first hour coz of moisture, which set ENG back a bit,but when you consider that ENG dont have Archer,Bairstow,Root,Stokes(ok, sorta retired from ODIs), Livingstone,Jacks, the team that ENG would play in World Cup is vastly different. They look a bit disinterested tbh.
Imagine a team of Bairstow,Jacks,Root,Brook,Stokes(orMalan),Buttler,Livingstone,Ali,Curran,Rashid,Archer ...it will take a lot to beat them when they are on the ball.
Dont get what Woakes brings to the team tbh
Hmmm, interesting aituation from one of the overnight games Otago v Central..
Both teams went 1.1 and then south, so we had SL invoked for both sides, I thought i'd sussed out that situation, obviously not !
Ah... there is a Repeat on Success option which i had switched off for some reason (probably debugging), plus noticed i had it on 1 side and not the other , so unlucky with that.
Shows how need to fully test these things before any serious money placed on it.
Plus also amended SL to 1.08.
Rain in SA now. Nice planning your trades in and then mother nature laughing at you.
One of the things about todays game (although it didnt happen) is that if it was a reduced game , say 10 overs each, then India would have had effectively 8 overs to smack it about (after having only got 4 runs from the 2 overs that were played before the rain came). Thats why i took my loss with IND, expecting it to be an unfair game.
@stuart-wallace-0 nice stuff
Is there potential that the market sits at 1.11. Then after a wicket drops to 1.07 say. In one sweep in lays and triggers the stop loss?
i have visions of there being a tighter SL , as any side thatgoes 1.08 is probably on their way to winning it anyway. but the gain is far greater than the risk
Invoked the 1.1 Lay
Invoked the 1.2 Back AND cancelled the SL.
Might have to adjust SL points, but i think/hope we are pretty much there.
All it will mean is allocating the Lay amount, then allocating the Markets into Fairbot - select the Strategy, and then let Fairbot do its work.
I'm tempted to set it on every game tomorrow to see what happens.
The Lay at Toss strategy still needs some work.Bit stuck on that one atm.
