Cricket Betting - 2022 The Complete Guide

Due to ever increasing popularity on the Indian Cricket Betting sub-continent, cricket is regarded as the second most popular sport in the world (behind association football) and as such gives the average punter 365 days a year in which he or she can can bet on cricket online.

Modern day cricket is unrecognisable from its humble beginnings in southern England back in the late 16th century. Sure, the game is still played with a bat, a ball, two sets of stumps and eleven players per side Cricket Betting, but cricket as a sport is forever changing as each year passes.

Traditional red ball cricket played with players in white clothing on a quintessential long English summers afternoon seems a far cry away from the big, bash, bold nature of the ever popular Twenty20 (T20) smash-a-thon that is the Indian Premier League (IPL) with its bright flashing lights, a white ball, coloured clothing, cheerleaders and players being sold to franchises for millions of dollars a season.

BETTING ON CRICKET ONLINE

What cricket tournaments can you bet on? First off we need to differentiate between domestic and international cricket. Let us start off focussing on the international side of the game. As explained above, there are three recognised formats of the game that are played out between Full and Associate member nations, governed by the International Cricket Council (ICC)

BETTING ON TEST CRICKET

Test matches are played over five days, giving us plenty of time to come up with a solid cricket betting strategy. Currently there are ten nations that have Test match status – England, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe. Tests are seen as the pinnacle of the game by many traditionalists.

Each Test match is played over fifteen sessions (morning, afternoon, evening session each day) with a total of 90 overs scheduled in each of the five days play. Because of the natural length of a Test match, players have to deal with a variety of different conditions. Batting could be very easy on the first day due to a flat wicket, but by days four and five the pitch could be scuffed up through natural wear and tear, offering spin bowlers in particular the chance to make life difficult for batsman with variable bounce and turn. Likewise cloudy, humid conditions in a morning session could make batting particularly tough, with the ball swinging and seaming around. If the batsman survives a tough spell such as this, he could be rewarded post-lunch in the afternoon session when the sun comes out. Clear overhead conditions, an older ball and a tiring attack could make batting several times easier than an hour or two previous.

In a shorter, one innings match such as an ODI or T20 Cricket Betting, these different conditions and scenarios are not given time to unfold, meaning Test match players have to be significantly more adaptable in order to succeed long term. Ever changing conditions mean cricket scores in Test matches can be vastly different from day-to-day, even session-to-session.

Test match series are generally nowadays no longer than three-match series, with the odd exception being a series involving one or more of the four main Test playing nations – England, Australia, South Africa and India Cricket Betting.
