Although it is a sport with low popularity in almost all Spanish-speaking countries, cricket has millions of fans and fans in many parts of the world, and is even one of the most widespread and practiced after football. The English tradition is known in relation to cricket, but also in other latitudes this ancient game is lived with great passion. Some good examples are Australia, New Zealand, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, where stadiums are regularly filled with a capacity of 50,000 spectators and more.
To get even more into the subject, it is worth mentioning that the most important event of cricket, in which two teams of 11 players each, at the countries level is the World Cup, whose first edition dates from 1975 and so far Has had Australia as main dominator. Until 2015, the oceanic country won 5 times this tournament, which, for example, never had Spain as a participant.
As a first step, you should know that some cricket matches are defined in one day (20, 40 or 50 overs) but others can last up to 5 days. These are international matches, known in the environment as 'Test Matches'. In addition to the World Cup and the 'Test Matches', to which we have already alluded previously, the games corresponding to the Twenty20 stand out in transcendence.

The physical and mental state of the protagonists can be decisive in the outcome of a game of cricket, especially in those that extend for many hours and days. It is also recommended to pay attention to various factors such as injuries and weather, which sometimes have an influential role. The team that registers the highest number of races will be the winner, which is the axis in several of the betting markets.
How to Bet

In this case, cricket games usually have attractive odds, since at the highest level practically anyone can beat anyone. When the tie option is also available and we have detected a more or less favorite team, the 'Double Chance' is an interesting option to cover us. For those who are really on the subject and know each of the players, the bet for the best batter of the team - usually - offers very good odds.
Of course, live betting is also notable for its excitement, dynamics and adrenaline cricket. In that sense, guessing how many races will make a team in total is undoubtedly one of the most attractive. Of course, to interfere in this market you must have certain knowledge and a good dose of experience. In this type of bet they influence the number of eliminated players that takes a team, the field in which they play, the over (set of 6 launches) in which they are, which of the two teams hits first and the quality of the 4 or 5 last hitters.
