Cricket Competitions Fixtures

One way of catching good value bets is keeping a close eye on fixture lists for various different cricketing competitions.

Punters are advised to look for trends in recent results when betting on cricket competitions. For example, Australia have a tremendous history in the Cricket World Cup, which is likely to affect odds on them claiming a tournament victory or winning individual matches. We aim to help you spot the relevant trends in various cricket competitions with our betting advice.

Cricket Competitions Live Streaming

Many cricket competitions from across the globe can be live streamed in South Africa, which enables punters to get a proper view of the ball-by-ball action. Following cricket through live text updates simply does not allow one to capture the intricacies of the game and live streaming is thus always ideal whenever possible.

Cricket Competitions Replays

If you are unable to catch a game from any cricket competition live, the first thing you should do is attempt to find the highlights of the match online. Ball-by-ball replays may also be available, although they are more difficult to find. Watching cricket highlights or replays allows you to catch up on important moments you might have missed at the very least and entire matches at best.

Cricket Competitions News

There are many publications across the world which cover cricket and bettors are advised to use them to their advantage when researching ahead of matches and cricket competitions. Independent publications aside, it is a good idea to keep an eye on the official website and YouTube page of the ICC, cricket's global governing body.
