T20 World Cup betting

T20 World Cup cricket betting has been called one of the most lucrative forms of sports betting in India. There are a number of T20 leagues around the world starting with the Indian Premier League (IPL), Big Bash League (BBL) and Caribbean Premier League (CPL) which are based on the Twenty20 format.

But nothing compares to betting on a T20 match. Such championships are held every two years in early spring in the leading cricket countries. It is held over several days in which various matches take place. The spectacle is incredible and attracts a huge number of followers.

The ICC World Twenty20 was only launched in 2007. The host country of this tournament is South Africa, and 8 tournaments have been held to date.

Most of these T20 matches are played under bright lights and the stadium resembles an entertainment venue with fans cheering for their favorites; with high-ranking DJs, as well as a whole team of international commentators who accompany the entire match and set the atmosphere.

There are three match formats in cricket: the test format lasts 5 days and gives each team two innings.

One Day International format. In these meetings, the teams try to determine the winner within one day, and the game as a whole is limited to 40 or 50 overs.

The Twenty20 format, here, only two innings are played before the end of the match (one for the attack of each team), and the average duration of the meeting is approximately three and a half hours. This format gives each team only 20 overs per match. This is why the tournament is called the Twenty20 format.

The difficulty of this match is that all teams play each other. Thus, it is played on a global scale, in which all cricket countries take part. The final winner earns Twenty20 World Champion status as they play hard during the tournament and must consistently win to become eventual winners.

In the tournament, the teams are divided into two groups. The first group will consist of 4 seeded teams, while the second group will consist of the remaining 4 seeded teams. There will also be two qualifying teams from last year’s ICC World Twenty20 qualifiers, and the teams are similarly divided and placed into first and second groups.

Each such group will play its own team match once and points will be awarded based on the following criteria: 2 points for a win, 0 points for a loss and 1 point if the match is canceled due to rain.

This stage of the tournament is called a «round» and teams will be judged based on their points. After the stage of the round there will be the next — Super-8, after which the preliminary results are again summed up and the semi-final is held, and only then the final.

Existing Betting Markets:

  • Double chance. Just like a bet on an outcome, only in a double chance two outcomes are summed up for a lower coefficient — for example, that there will be no draw or that at least one of the teams will not lose.
  • For odds. Here you can make a prediction with what advantage the team will win or more than what handicap will not yield to the opponent. For example, in control matches between strong teams, there is a tendency to bet on a zero handicap.

Let’s consider in dynamics some predictions for the winning teams.


Captain: Eoin Morgan

Strengths of the team

The team pays a lot of attention to detail, namely, they plan the game well. It is headed by Eoin Morgan — the most starting strategist.

The team has strong hitters as well as some amazing all-rounders and death bowlers. In fact, it seems that the team has no weak points.


Captain: Kieron Pollard


This team refers to those who are afraid to meet. This team has an explosive line-up with six striking batsmen, a strong captain and a decent bowling line-up.


One of the drawbacks is the average age of the players in this T20 World Cup, this team is considered to be the oldest. There may be some injuries and breakdowns that will unbalance the course of the game for the team.


Captain: Virat Kohli


This team is particularly well versed in the conditions, has a strong lineup of players with outstanding champions (Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Lokes Rahul). The team is also called one of the unpredictable, capable of changing the game in an instant.


Players fill roles for their franchises first and foremost, not for India as a whole. This is a big minus, which can cost India dearly.


Captain: Babar Azam


Strong in close continental conditions for their country. The team has several outstanding batsmen. We saw how they played PSL fearlessly, bowling for them is the place where the team goes several levels above the rest of the teams.


The team is still a little behind the others in terms of power and fielding.

What is the difference between ODI AND TWENTY20 CRICKET?

t20 world cup

One-day matches (One Day International, or simply ODI) are the golden mean. In these meetings, the teams try to determine the winner within one day, and the game as a whole is limited to 40 or 50 overs.

This sport has its own betting and payout system, which differs, for example, from tennis. Worth sorting out:

For an outcome or a draw. Level 1 cricket is tied, so the odds of a test match are three. Draws are not as common as in football, but still relatively high and comparable to hockey. In the one-day and «twenty» format, bookmakers offer two-sided outcomes without the possibility of a draw.

«Twenty 20» is slowly but surely gaining more and more popularity in the world, here only two innings are played before the end of the match (one for each team’s attack), and the average duration of the meeting is approximately three and a half hours. Teams play 20 overs each, which is how the match got its name.
