Betting on cricket: rules, features

Cricket is a team sport which has a huge number of fans. This is primarily due to the high popularity of cricket in India, home to more than a billion people, and thanks to the Indian fans, cricket is reportedly the second most popular sport in the world after soccer. Matches are played all year round and betting opportunities are virtually endless.

Popularity and rich history

The first information about cricket dates back to the 16th century, when the British were already practicing a similar sport using a ball and a flat bat. The British Empire's expansion into remote parts of the world led to the spread of the discipline to new countries. However, its development has since stalled, and cricket is now little popular outside the former British colonies.

Betting on cricket is a multi-billion dollar business in Asia, Australia and nearby countries, in Britain. The biggest markets are high-profile Test matches between national teams and T20-format games in the Indian Premier League. Approximately 70 percent of cricket betting is done in the live format.

In search of the perfect regulation

There are mainly three cricket formats these days: first tier cricket, one-day matches and T20 ("Twenty20"). At the first level, meetings can last for 3, 4 or 5 days, with Test matches between national teams and National Championships being played in this format. It is the slowest form of cricket, where matches are often played with heavy tactical competition.

The fastest and most spectacular regulation is the bet on t20, where matches do not drag on for long. "Twenty" is gradually gaining popularity in the world, there are only two innings (one for each team's attack) to complete the match, and the average duration of the meeting is three and a half hours.

The One Day International, or simply ODI, is the middle ground. In these encounters, teams try to determine the winner in one day, and the game is limited to 40 or 50 total overs.
