    They can't be vastly different, otherwise you'd be able to arbitrage and make money either way - a result that bookies really don't like.

    Think pretty much all bookies were favoring Australia. They were definitely the bookies favourites amongst the majority.

    Do bookies really care about cross-agency arbitraging? I can't really see why.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

If you have a source Id be very happy to believe you.

    Not having a go personally at you - I'm seriously wondering if there is any truth (eg did a curator or an nz official say something and I missed it?)
    Actually SS, whilst I'm not 100% sure of it's validity, the claim has been bandied about by the NZ cricket media for the last couple of years tbh, The theory is that after the green tops of '02 the BCCI (on behalf of the Indian team) indicated they wouldn't tour NZ again if they were dished up similar wickets. I'll see if I can find anything online.

    I bet that has more to do with them being pissed off at 2-3 day tests than actually and getting less advertising revenue than giving a **** about winning.

    See how they didn't prepare turners vs. NZ in 2002 and 2010.

    Yeah, actually they do as it can encourage unexpected betting behaviour for individual bookies and the bookies like to control the way the money flows. They may accept an arbitrage bet, but for an arbitrage to be worthwhile, the bet values have to be pretty high and so the bookie will either deny the bet, or massively reduce the allowed stake. Well, from what I've seen anyway.
