Sportsbet Give Punters Ashes First Test Justice Refund
July 15, 2013
After a series of questionable decisions went against Australia in the first Ashes Test, online bookmaker Sportsbet has refunded bets on Australia to win the match.
The first test at Trent Bridge will go down as one of the greatest matches in Ashes history, but patriotic punters who backed Australia will not remember it so fondly. A fantastic five days of world-classs cricket was overshadowed by a string of controversial umpiring and DRS decisions which culminated with dismissal of Brad Haddin, denying Astralia a priceless win. The result of that decision sees England take a 1-0 lead in the series and now the hosts have the momentum going into the second test at Lords on Thursday.
Online bookmaker Sportsbet have remarkably executed a ‘Justice Refund’ which has seen the firm re-pay an estimated $200,000 to punters who backed Australia, including live bets and bets placed as early as April. The kind gesture by Sportsbet will allow punters to have another chance to back their team in the second test with 4.00 the latest price available about Australia, while England can be backed at 2.00 and the draw is available at 3.30. England’s lead has seen them harden as favourites for The Ashes test cricket series at slim odds of 1.20, with 8.00 available on the draw and Australia can be backed at 8.50.
