Cricket Betting Strategy: One-Day Internationals

As the quintessential English sport, and one that takes place almost daily throughout the year, it’s little surprise that so many sports punters have been bowled over by cricket. However, those who associate the game with country village life and lazy summer afternoons will be in for a shock with the fast-paced action of one-day internationals. Bright coloured jerseys replace cricket whites as teams of 11 battle it out over two innings of 50 overs, and nail-biting finishes are commonplace.

Assessing Ground Trends

Coming up with a successful cricket betting strategy will require a little research. Assessing the ground trends is a good starting point, as changes to the conditions of the pitch itself can affect the play in dramatic ways. A damp surface and a ‘greener’ wicket can favour fast bowlers, while the drier conditions in India and Pakistan result in much slower games. As the wicket is churned by the running batsmen, the bounce of the ball will become much more inconsistent, and working out who this will favour should be key to your approach.

Importance of the Coin Toss

The initial coin toss, determining which team will take to the batting crease first, is a huge factor in one-day cricket. If a team with a particular preference for batting or bowling wins the toss, the perceived advantage can swing the odds heavily in their favour. For punters looking to delve into the outright winner market, this makes for an interesting decision. The only real way to assess what a good total is for the first innings, is to analyse how the pitch plays and how the bowlers are performing, so it sometimes pays to hold your bets for a little longer. Of course, exercising caution will impact on your potential return.
