A popular bat-and-ball game after baseball, Cricket has gained popularity especially in countries like Australia and England. Essentially, it works like baseball wherein one team bats and tries to score as many runs as possible while the other team tries to limit the runs made by the other team. Like most professional sports, this has not escaped the eyes of bookmakers who offer many betting opportunities for this sport. Due to the enormous selection offered in Cricket betting, International Cricket is beginning to emerge as one of the most popular betting sports in the world. Bookmakers try to appeal and get the heart of new bettors by offering free ticket bets available on most of their websites. These free ticket bets will give a new bettor an opportunity to test the waters.
Among the most popular betting options for cricket are the Match betting, Top Run-scorer, Highest Opening Partnership and 1st Innings Lead. Match Betting is the easiest and most popular among the betting opportunities in Cricket. All the punters have to do is pick the team they think will win the match. Top Run-scorer is for the punters who want to place a bet on who he thinks will be the top run-scorer of a team. In Highest Opening Partnership, punters can pick an opening partnership that will reach the highest score and in 1st Innings Lead, punters will place a bet on the team they think will have the highest score in the first innings. These four are the most bet-on opportunities in Cricket betting and also the most favourite due to its ease.
