Explanation in words

When you want to bet on “Runs at Fall of the First Wicket” of a T20/ODI match, the online betting company will offer you Over and Under options of a fractional run (like – 27.5 runs).

Besides, Why .5? Generally the bets like Over/Under will include “.5“. So the confusing thing is how do teams score the .5 runs? Actually, it is not confusing. Not at all. It makes this type of bet easier because it skips the possibility of a draw.

After choosing the option you like, you have to give your stakes. If your option matches the result of the match, then you will win the bet in a Test match.

On the other hand, if your option doesn’t match, then you will lose the stakes.

For example, a Test match is about to happen between India and West Indies. Suppose, you made a bet of 100 dollars that the first wicket will fall over 27.5 runs. In the end, it seems the first wicket falls on 29 runs in this Test match. So, it matches your options. As a result, you win the bet and claim the stakes!

On the other hand, if you choose the option of over 27.5 runs, then you could lose the stakes.
