Although a great many bets can be placed on a game of cricket, both before the event and as in-play betting, the principals of most of these bets are fairly simple. At the heart of all cricket betting is the issue of how many runs a batsman can score, and whether or not they will be out. By far the simplest and often the most spectacular means of a batsman getting out is for them to be bowled. A batsman is bowled if the cricket ball is delivered by the bowler and hits the wickets. It still counts if it hits the bat, gloves, hat or any other part of the batsman before reaching the wickets, although it cannot be a no ball and it mustn’t have touched any other player or the umpire.
The most common form of betting on cricket is simply to bet on the overall outcome of the match, but the variety offered by in-play betting means it is possible to pursue better odds and a more dynamic and interactive betting experience. It’s possible to place a bet on which bowler will claim the most wickets during a match, although not all of these have to be bowled. Bets can also be placed on the next method of dismissal. If a particular batsman finds it difficult to deal with spin bowlers, for example, and the next ball is to be delivered by an expert in this type of bowling, then a bet on them being bowled next ball, or within a set number of overs, could become highly appealing. Success in specific betting of this kind involves a degree of knowledge of the game and of individual players, as well as the ability to research factors such as the ground and the conditions, and the nerve required to make quick decisions and resist the temptation to chase losses with ever larger stakes.
