There are various markets available on which you can bet on cricket matches, series and tournaments. Most of the bookmakers will offer opportunities to bet before the start of each of series apart from offering outright betting on the series itself. To search for all the markets available, visit the website of your favourite bookmaker and head to the CRICKET menu. Under cricket, you can hunt for the market of your choice.

Outright Winner Bets

All bookmakers will offer odds on the outright winner of a Test, ODI or T20 series. This will be available through the entire duration of the series, till obviously the series is decided.

Match Betting

All bookmakers will offer odds on match winners before the start of the games and some of them will also offer in-play betting during every Test. These odds will fluctuate up and down for each of the results – win, loss and draw – during the course of play.

Tournament Winner

All bookmakers will offer you markets and odds on big tournaments, including the Big Bash League and IPL. You’re betting on who you think will be crowned champions.

Correct Series Score Betting

At the start of any series you will also be able to predict the exact scoreline for the series. So, for instance, a three-match series could have 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 scoreline in favour of Australia or in favour of South Africa or have 0-0 or 1-1 draws in the series.

Top Batsmen/Bowlers

Most bookmakers will offer markets for the top batsman and bowler for both teams for the first innings of the Test match or during ODI or T20 matches. And there will be odds for the top batsman and bowler for the series as well, for each side. At the end of the first innings – or at the end of the series – the batsman who has scored most number of runs or bowlers who have picked up most wickets will be the top batsman/bowler.
