Top Ashes run scorer betting or Ashes top batsman betting are the terms used to describe the player who will score the most amount of runs from both Australia and England over the whole of the 5 test matches in the series. It is one of the more popular pre series Ashes Betting markets.
So for example, if after the end of the 5th Test, Steven Smith has scored 486 runs, and no one else from either team scores more than him, he is regarded as the winner of the bet.
If Smith scored his 486 runs in 5 Test matches, and Alastair Cook is in second place with 466 runs, but Cook only played in 4 Tests due to injury, Smith is still regarded as the winner of the bet. It is the player with the most amount of runs in the whole series who is regarded as the bet winner, no matter what the circumstances.
