This market can be known as one of Outright Top Ashes Bowler market, or Outright Top Ashes Wicket Taker market, and it is a bet on who will take the most wickets from either side in the whole of the Ashes series. It is one of the most popular pre Ashes Betting markets available.
In the event of a dead heat, ie, both Mitchell Starc and Jimmy Anderson take 22 wickets each, then bookmakers usually regard the bowler with the betting bowling average as the winner. ie, if Starc takes his 22 wickets at 21 runs per a wicket, and Anderson takes his 22 wickets at 22 runs per a wicket, then Starc would be the winner.
Different bookmakers may have different interpretations of dead heat markets like this though, so it is well worth checking first and ensuring you know how the winner will be declared before placing any bets in this particular market.
