A five-wicket haul is a term used in cricket, and is when a bowler has taken five wickets or more from the opposing team in any innings.
A five-wicket haul can be taken in any format of the game from Test matches, One Day Internationals and the shortest format, Twenty20.
Due to the difficulty of achieving a five-wicket haul, it is deemed a notable accomplishment in sport and is on much the same terms as a football player scoring a hat trick.

As mentioned above, it is similar to a footballer scoring a hat-trick or a darts player landing a nine-dart finish but is an occurrence that can be made a profit from.
A punter can choose any bowler they decide has the best chance of landing a five-wicket haul and will take into consideration factors such as past records at the ground the match is being played at, opposition, form and state of the pitch.
These are all important factors to consider when selecting which bowler to back when looking at the five-wicket haul market.
