The method of dismissal is a term used in cricket matches, and it refers to the manner in which a batsman has their wicket taken. The methods of dismissal can include being caught, being bowled, being stumped, being run out and leg before wicket. The next method of dismissal is the method via which the next wicket is predicted to be taken.
Betting on the next method of dismissal is just one of the many ways in which a bettor can enjoy in play betting whilst watching a cricket match. In play betting means placing bets on events as they unfold, and is a dynamic means of using judgement, concentration and background knowledge to generate a potential profit and gain more enjoyment from actually watching the match. Other in play cricket bets include the number of runs on which the next wicket will fall and the runs scored in a specific number of overs.
The next method of dismissal bet can be placed as a 6 way or a 2 way bet. The 6 way bet means choosing a method from of caught, bowled, LBW, run out, stumped and any other, which includes retired out or sent off. The 2 way bet means that the choice is simply between caught or not caught.
Placing a bet on the next method of dismissal means watching the match with full concentration and taking particular note of how the previous wickets have fallen. If the bowler has already tricked two or three batsmen into trying to make shots which ended up being edged into the wicket keepers gloves, then this might seem like a sensible choice for the next method of dismissal. Alternatively, knowing that a batsman is batting through the last over while chasing a very high total to win the match might mean they go for sixes and increase the chances of being caught at the boundary. Betting on the next method of dismissal combines the traditional pleasure of studying the match closely as it slowly unfolds, with the completely modern excitement of placing bets in the heat of the action.
