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.
