Cricket is a fairly unique sport in that there an awful lot of factors that can have an influence on the result of a game. 

Things like the weather, the hours of sunlight in a day and the luck of the toss should all be factored in and some of them are difficult to be aware of before the game itself starts. 

Doing ample research is an absolute must when it comes to cricket, knowing a player’s individual form can also be key to winning or losing your bet. 

Betting on cricket can be an incredibly difficult and time consuming task, but it can also reap huge rewards for those willing to spend the time doing so.

How to bet on cricket

 
To a lot of nations in the world, cricket is just a posh pass-time played by the British, but those countries who love cricket, really love cricket. Despite only being popular in a handful of countries, the sheer volume of people that watch the sport in those countries has established the sport as one of the most viewed in the entire world. 

For those who don’t watch it though, cricket can seem like a fairly complicated sport to get your head around, but in terms of betting, it couldn’t be more straightforward. 

As with any team sport, bets like full-time results, over/under markets and man of the match are all incredibly common. You will also find lots of other interesting proposition markets are available to place a bet on as well, especially during tournaments like the Cricket World Cup.

Here at Bonus Bets, we aim to keep all of our customers as up to date as possible with all of the latest bonus codes and how and when you should use them.

Free bets on cricket are most common during the sport’s big games or tournaments, but you are also likely to find a lot of them being offered throughout the Summer, which is the cricketing season in the UK. 

All free bets will come with their own terms and conditions and some may require the customer to place their own bet in order to be given their free one. We advise that all of our readers take care when reading the terms and conditions of each bookmaker when it comes to free bets.

In an effort to keep customers involved in the game as much as possible, many bookmakers will now offer live streaming for their sports for free. 

Unfortunately, not a lot of bookmakers have the rights to stream cricket matches at the moment, with Betfair being the only major bookmaker to offer streaming on the sport right now.
