Betting on online cricket

What cricket tournaments can I bet on?
First we need to differentiate between the different formats of cricket. There are in fact plenty.
We are writing an in depth guide on the different major formats that we will share with you as soon as possible. But to summarize the formats are:

Test Cricket

This is the most ancient form of cricket and is played over 5 days. Both teams are able to win, draw and lose the match.

One Day Cricket (ODI)

Become popular in the ‘70s and really revolutionised the game of cricket as we know it. A match is played in one day, with 50 overs for each team.

T20 Cricket

The newest edition to cricket. A match is played in one afternoon or evening with 20 overs for each team.

The next step is to deposit funds into your new account in order for you to start betting. If you are betting from India we recommend that you use e-wallets rather than debit and credit cards as it varies whether betting sites will accept Indian credit and debit cards.

Below you have a list of deposit options

  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Entropay
  • Astropay
  • ecoPayz
  • Debit card
  • Credit card

Remember that you need to deposit funds before you are able to bet on any games


E-wallets work just like an online bank. You create an account and get an account number. You deposit funds to that account and are able to withdraw from it as well. You then use it to transfer funds to your betting account.

Our recommended e-wallets are the following

  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • ecoPayz
  • Entropay

What are odds?

Now that you have created your betting account and put money in it you can start betting with real cash. Available matches can be found under the cricket section.

The betting options will look like this:

The above is the game between Gujarat Lions and Kolkata Knight Riders with the odds being 1.72 for Gujarat Lions and 2.10 for Kolkata Knight. These are the betting odds for this match and each team. We have created a page only dedicated to cricket odds and you will find a summary in the text below.

How betting odds work

In the example above you see the betting odds for the three possible outcomes in a match between Gujarat Lions and Kolkata Knight Riders. You can bet on Gujarat Lions to win or Kolkata Knight Riders to win.

The odds for Gujarat Lions to win is 1.72. This means that if you bet 1,000 rupees on to win, you would receive 1,720 rupees if they manage to beat Kolkata Knight Riders. You get your initial wager of 1,000 rupees back plus your winnings of 720 rupees.

So, you just have to multiply your wager (in this case 1,000 rupees) with the odds (rate) to see how much your potential winnings will be.

If you instead decide to bet 500 rupees on Kolkata Knight Riders to win at the odds of 2.10 you would receive 1,050 rupees if . Of this your winnings would be 550

If the team that you choose to bet on doesn’t manage to win you simply lose the wager that you put in, regardless of the odds that you placed the bet at.

When you believe that you’ve found a winning bet, click on the bet you want to make, fill out the amount and click to confirm. Easy peasy.
