GentingBet to honour pre-tournament ‘New Zealand to win Cricket World Cup’ bets after Kiwis fall agonizingly short in final

New Zealand’s Cricket World Cup dream ended in dramatic fashion yesterday as the result of a technical boundary rule. The country’s PM Jacinda Ardern led the post-match mourning, saying she was “traumatized” by the Kiwi’s loss in the nail-biting tournament finale.

Given the freak nature of New Zealand’s loss at Lord’s, GentingBet have declared that they will honour all pre-Tournament bets on New Zealand winning the Cricket World Cup. The Kiwis were a 10/1 shot to win the competition for a first time earlier this summer.  

 A GentingBet spokesperson said: “Of course we’re proud of England and everything they’ve achieved, but our hearts go out to New Zealand for the cruel manner of their loss. It’s a series a bad luck that stopped them lifting the trophy. 

 “Their players showed great sportsmanship in the wake of that defeat and for that reason we’ve decided to honour pre-tournament bets to customers who backed New Zealand to win the tournament.”
