CRICKET

Cricket is a ball-and-stick game that originated in 16th-century England, where it is now a national sport. From humble beginnings to becoming one of the most-watched sports in the nation, cricket’s history is rich and full of intrigue. Today, fans and punters can enjoy multiple prestigious competitions held all year round; the sport has a particularly strong following in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and India.

HOW TO BET ON CRICKET

Let’s cover the basics before you get started on cricket betting! Cricket is played between two teams of 11 players on an oval field, at the centre of which is a 20-metre (20-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end. In each innings, one team attempts to score runs by striking the ball, while the other team bowls and fields the ball to restrict scoring or dismiss the batsmen. At the end of an innings, the teams switch roles.

The main objective is to score more runs than the opponents, but some forms of cricket also require dismissing all of the opposition’s batsmen in their final innings. Cricket matches are typically two to four innings long, with two-innings matches played over a single day and four-innings matches stretching over three to five days. While the game is similar to baseball, cricket rules are more complex and significantly differ from America’s favourite pastime.

To bet on cricket, you’ll want to keep your eyes on the ICC World Cup, Indian Premier League (IPL), County Championship and Inter-Provincial Cup. You also don’t want to miss the England vs Australia Ashes Series — one of the biggest cricket competitions and longest-running rivalries in sport.
