With the creation of 20/20 cricket it won’t be long before cricket is clearly the second biggest sport on the planet. If you looked at sheer population numbers that love the game it would already be there but now. Cricket is a sport that can be played by everyone and it is action packed and exciting.
It is a high scoring game like basketball, has all the history and fielding prowess of baseball and has passionate supporters like football. It is a world sport that is played in Oceania, Asia, Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. This gives the game some serious scope for growth.
When it comes to sports betting then there is no bigger growth industry than cricket betting. The Indian cricket betting scene has a bad name but that is not as wide spread as some of the bigots would like you to think. 888sport has always been dedicated to cricket betting and they offer a huge range of betting markets for all games irrespective of which form of the game they feature or where the game is played.
For Australians there is no other event bigger than the Ashes, and the Poms are on their way! They hold the Urn and they have never been as confident about holding onto it on our soil. They still have a few questions when it comes to depth but for the first time in a long time if you were to pick a side from both teams you would probably see a higher percentage of English. Players such as Strauss, Collingwood, Peiterson, Swann, Broad and Anderson are all world class and they will never have a better chance to beat us ‘down under’ than right now. It may be Ricky Ponting’s swan song and he will be hungrier than ever so make sure you log onto 888sport and earn yourself some Ashes glory by making some easy dollars on the result.
