Cricket Free Bets

cricket ballLargely due to its popularity on the sub-continent cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, behind only football. Therefore the popularity of cricket free bets is huge within the world of online gambling as fans look to seize opportunities to bet on their favourite sport.

Cricket free bets can be used to punt on any format of the game, from Test match cricket to One Day Internationals and the increasingly popular Twenty20 matches. Within these different formats of the game there is the option to use your cricket free bets on markets as diverse as the match winner and top team run scorer or the method of the next dismissal and number of runs scored in an innings.

The Indian Premier League is now one of the most watched sporting leagues in the world as big crowds and big money attract the star names to the competition. The likes of Chris Gayle, Kevin Pietersen, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Lasith Malinga and Jacques Kallis have all plied their trade on the IPL stage and attracted many cricket free bets.

Types of Cricket Free Bets

The number of markets on which you can use your cricket free bets has grown remarkably over the past ten years. Where once punters were restricted to betting on the match winner and perhaps the number of runs scored in an innings, there is now the option to use cricket free bets on a vast number of different markets:

  • Top team run scorer
  • Top team wicket taker
  • Number of extras in an innings
  • Batsmen match bets
  • Number of runs within an over
  • method of dismissal
  • Highest opening partnership
  • Century scored
  • Total 4s and total 6s ......

are just a handful of the markets now offered by most bookmakers on almost every international cricket match as well as many domestic ones too.

Using Your Cricket Free Bets

In order to claim your cricket free bet punters should follow the specific guidelines set out by each individual bookmaker in their Free Bet terms and conditions. Most will ask for punters to register then make an initial deposit and bet before their free bet token is credited. However, there are some online offers that only ask for a player to register for an account then will immediately credit accounts with a cricket free bet.

Once the free bet has been made available, using your cricket free bets couldn’t be simpler; first navigate your way to the cricket betting market of your choice, then make your selection at the advertised odds before finally selecting your bet and ticking the free bet option on the betting slip.

Then all that is left to do is sit in your lucky chair, wearing your lucky boxer shorts, cross all your fingers and toes and hope for the cricket betting gods to shine down on your bet.

Ashes Cricket

The oldest rivalry in cricket continues to attract the most attention in terms of both general public awareness and punters looking to use their cricket free bets. The Ashes has been contested between England and Australia since 1882 and for crciketers and patriots of either nation it is still regarded as the holy grail of their sport.

The name ‘Ashes’ comes from a mock obituary written by Reginald Brooks in The Sporting Times just after Australia first defeated England in 1882, it read;

In Affectionate Remembrance

of

ENGLISH CRICKET,

which died at the Oval

on

29th AUGUST 1882,

Deeply lamented by a large circle of sorrowing

friends and acquaintances

R.I.P.

N.B.—The body will be cremated and the

ashes taken to Australia.

Thereafter England’s captain Ivo Bligh vowed that his side would go to Australia and regain “The Ashes”. Thus a legend was born and one of sport’s greatest rivalries created.
