South Africa 474/9d & 189/3d
New Zealand 275 & 200/6 (80.4 ov)
M Morkel 16.4-7-23-6 in the second innings.
At lunch in the England game:
Sri Lanka 318
Tighty's irresistible logic looks to be on the mark again.
Daily Report delayed whilst a Stewards Inquiry took place on the Philander wager.
Philander was "only" JOINT highest wicket taker. He took a 6 for, & in the 2nd Innings, Morkel repeated the exact same trick.
I asked itt yesterday what would happen in this event, & Mere stated (I think) that with some bookies, it goes to the guy who conceded least runs.
Philander took 6-81
Morkel took 6-23
So i thought we may have been pipped @ the Post.
I placed the bet with Blue Square, & have just looked at my Account History, & they appear to have settled the bet in our favour. (Below is C & P from "My Account").22.03.12 11:52 Single £50.00 3rd Test - New Zealand v South Africa Top Wicket Taker (1st Inns) - SA Vernon Philander 5/2 £175.00
The £175 is shown in the "Returns" Column.
So I THINK it was deemed a winner. Does anyone know the exact Blue Square rules on this?
