One of the shortest formats of cricket is the T20 series. With the sport looking at ways of introducing new fans to the sport, T20 matches provide an exciting way to watch, play and bet on cricket. In this article we are going to look at some of the key markets to consider when betting on T20 cricket and how you can approach them.


The T20 Format

The T20 format essentially follows the same rules of the more traditional versions of the game. In T20 cricket, each team is allocated one innings per match to try and score as many runs as possible over the course of 20 overs or until all batsmen are out.

If the scores are tied at the end of a game the bowlers will compete in a bowl-out, crickets’ version of a penalty shootout. Five bowlers from each side will bowl twice at the stumps, there are not batsman in the way and the team who hits the stumps most is crowned the winner.


Popular Betting Markets

Highest Run Scorer – The fast-paced nature of the game doesn’t suit all players. For those players who have a good record in T20s you may look at the Highest Run Scorer market. You have to select which batsmen you think will finish the match on the highest score for your bet to win.

Leading Wicket Taker – This market allows you to choose which bowler you think will end the match with the most wickets. If two bowlers end on the same number of wickets, the bowler who gave up the least amount of runs in order to take their wickets will be deemed the winner.

Total Runs Over/Under – With each team only having 20 overs to score their runs, the game is fast paced and can be high scoring. Betting on this market is very popular with T20 bettors and simply requires you to choose whether a team will score more than a number of runs set by the bookmaker.


BettorMind Advice

Research – If you are new to betting on T20 it is a great idea to start with some research into the game and how it varies from other formats of cricket. As mentioned above the fast-paced style of the game is not one which will suit all players. Building a foundation of knowledge on the basics and the types of players who prefer the format will put in you a good position make the best decision when it comes to your bets.

Spread the Fun – Although the games are relatively short, a lot can open over the course of 20 overs and there are plenty of markets for you to bet on. To find the right market for you, you may want to have a number of smaller bets on multiple markets to see which ones suit you. By using smaller stakes, you can enjoy the different markets whilst ensuring you are betting within your means.

T20 is fast-paced and full of action. It has quickly become one of the most popular formats of cricket. This has seen an increase in the number of games and therefore more opportunities for those who enjoy betting on them to do so.
