Betting on Cricket has become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly with the advent of the Betting exchanges, making it easy for punters to sell runs on a weak batting side, or buy runs from a strong batting side. Traditional cricket betting remains strong however, with strong markets on Overall winner, Top Bowler, Top Batsmen.

Betting is available for the County Championship, Friends Provident Trophy, Twenty20 Cup, Pro40, and Indian Premier League, as well as any Test Series, The Cricket World Cup, and of course The Ashes showdown between England and Australia.

Sport is a world of outliers and exceptions, this much we know, but some general trends and rules can be observed and held as consistently applicable if not always true. Time will normally take a toll on the putting prowess of a pro golfer, for example, and on average a prop will take more damage and play for less time in rugby, but there is always a Tom Watson or […]

Where you start is not […]

Although the first test between England and India didn’t end in a loss for the home side it is fair to say it raised a few questions about the ability of the team to follow a plan and act with clarity when the opportunity to change a game arises, questions Geoff Boycott revelled in asking acerbically once the draw had been declared. Alastair Cook’s leadership has been question several times […]

England v India: Captain Cook’s last stand?

There seems to be a cycle of English sport, whereby only one of our teams can enjoy success at any given time, if any of them do at all, but right at the moment we’re just struggling generally whatever the game and it’s hard not to see this as a low point for our national athletic identity. Andy Murray failed fairly unspectacularly in his attempt to hold onto the Wimbledon […]
