What is Cricket?
Cricket is a non-contact team sport, part of the bat and ball family of games. The origins of the game date back to the 16th century in the south of England. By the end of the 18th century, the game had become one of the national sports. Cricket was seen as a sport for the aristocracy, and matches were played in white kits and rules encompassed a weighty volume. The sport quickly spread around the world, but not many countries joined the cricket board. Most of the games existed in the countries (colonies) of the British Empire. The main countries currently in the association are Australia, England, Bangladesh, the West Indies, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Zimbabwe. The first test match was played on March 15, 1877, between England and Australia. The Australians won, to everyone’s surprise. Since then, every year and a half, these teams fight for victory.
A cricket match involves two teams, each composed of eleven players. Some are called bowlers (dropping the ball), and the other batsmen (batting the ball). There is also a wicketkeeper (a player at the back of a wicket or wicket, his job is to catch the ball). The umpire is the umpire on the pitch. The game takes place on an elliptical grass pitch. In the center of the field is a rectangular ground – the pitch. The pitch is just over 20 meters long and 3 meters wide. Playing areas at the ends of the pitch are separated from the main space by special strips (krizas).
The rules of the game are as follows: in each stroke (innings) the bowler, playing on the field, throws the ball to the opposing batsman through the entire length of the pitch. Each time the batsman hits the ball, he has to make a run from his wicket to the other, so he tries to bounce the throw so that the ball reaches the boundary of the field or flies far enough away from his opponents. If successful, and subject to certain other conditions, the batsman’s team scores points. However, certain playing conditions, such as the opponent catching the ball before it touches the ground, breaking the batsman’s wicket, etc., will disqualify the batsman from the game. – takes the batsman out of the game. Innings continue until ten batsmen from the opposing team have been removed from the game, at which point the teams change roles. The bowlers change roles at the end of six innings, a set of which is called an over. The winner is the team with the most runs (points).
Before you make a bet, it makes sense to understand what you are going to bet on. Cricket competitions are divided into several types. First-level games. Here is a limited meeting time and 4 innings. On average, these games last up to 5 days, and daily game sessions take 6 hours. Games with a certain number of overs of 2 innings. These games are usually played in 1 day, but stretch over 6 hours. Cricket has its own hierarchy of prestige – for example, Test cricket. Such championships are held between members of the International Cricket Council, which includes 8 nations. Championships are very exotic – County Championship in England, Ranji Trophy (India), Sheffield Shield (Australia), and the like.

It is necessary to pay attention to the state of the team, its readiness, the condition of the field, and many other important factors.

- Pay attention to how the team feels on the field of play (whether the team has ever won at a venue, whether it is new to the team);
- Recent changes in the team, newcomers, recent injuries to athletes, the psychological state of the team, the internal political situation in the country the team represents;
- General statistics about the team and players (how many global stars from the top sports rankings);
