Making money from Cricket is not something out of the normal world of Cricket, where there is a lot of money involved and it is legalized in many places while stays illegal still in many places around. It does not always hold the same activity, and it all depends on the tournaments and the frequency, level of the games being played. The latest trend of the Twenty20 (T20) cricket is so picked up that the fate of a game is decided within a span of few hours and loads of money gets involved, and the end result of the match could change within a few minutes.
What to put your money for?
There are several things one can place money for in a Cricket game, and here are the main ones:
To win – This is the most common as one does mostly for the winner of the game, the winner of the series or tournament, and not just Cricket but almost all sports would see these being placed by people for the winner.
Man of the match – You can put money on a player who you think would be the Man of the Match for that game.
Top batsmen / Top Bowler – This involves choosing who you think would be scoring the most runs, and the one who would be taking the most wickets.
To win the toss – Pretty self explanatory, on who you think will win the toss at the beginning of the game
Most sixes – Choose which player you think will hit the most sixes in the game.
Conditions to Consider
When you are playing with your money, you need to have a few considerations and keep a proper check of everything. Here are a few common ones:
Weather Conditions: You need to have some knowledge about the weather conditions, especially the winner of the match as that is sometimes influenced based on the weather, where the sunny conditions would be favoring the batsmen more and the damp and overcast day would assist the bowlers more.
These factors would be more helpful when you are doing during a test match.
Format of the game: The format of the Cricket game is one more important factor to consider, as that is what would change the course of the result and game. While a test match is being played, you can understand the way a game is going and you can put your money on the 3rd day, but when it’s a T20 or an ODI game that would see the result within a few hours, it is more of a team and toss factor that you would need to check.
