Live Cricket Betting – In Match Betting
Live cricket betting is sometimes referred to as ‘in-match’, ‘in-play’ or ‘in-running’ betting which allows betters to place bets during a live match as the game advances. For example, instead of just betting on the final score or outcome of the cricket match, bettors can bet how the next dismissal will occur, how many runs a team will score on the next ball or the next man out. This is available at online betting sites through live stream technology that allows players to view and bet on the match in real time. This adds a level of excitement to the game that is not available through traditional ‘static’ betting. Having a solid internet connection makes this method much more enjoyable as it reduces the lag between the real time event and reception of the event. Live betting is fast passed and requires that the bettor maintains total focus to keep track of the match as it progresses and the odds offered on each bet. Since the bets are real time, bettors must quickly act to make some of the bets in real time.
We prefer to use www.Bet365.com for our live cricket betting. They have the most user friendly experience.

The national Indian Cricket Team participates in international ODI, Test and T20 events. India has shown some success throughout their history on the international stage. The 80′s and early 90′s were a strong period for the Indian national team, winning the Cricket World Cup (1983), Asia Cup (1984, 1988, 1990, 1995), World Championship of Cricket (1985). After hitting a slump during the 90′s including a bit of scandal, the Indian Cricket Team has come out with some strong showings in international events, starting with 3rd place in the Asia Cup in 2000, then joint champions of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2002, runners up in the Asia Cup in 2004 and 2008, Champions of the Asia Cup in 2010 and a 3rd place finish in 2012. Their current standings are 5th (Test), 1st (ODI) and 3rd (T20). The Indian Cricket Team seems to be in a new era of cricket. We certainly look forward to the 2013 ICC Trophy this year.

Cricket Satta Tips and Strategy
Different types of bettors. There are different types of bettors out there. Some are looking purely for the thrill of the bet. They will bet on anything and everything, they are primarily looking for entertainment. Some simply bet on their favorite team, doubling down on their commitment to their team and adding excitement to the outcome of the match. Some play for profit, they are careful only too look for good values; to them the process is more of a science than an art. Know what kind of bettor you are and play accordingly.
Betting for the Thrill. If you are looking to bet for the thrill. Look into proposition and exotic bets. These allow you to bet on all kinds of events and outcomes. This includes event crowd size, odd or even scores, wickets for individual bowlers and more. They add a level of excitement to the game that simple match bets don’t offer. They have a higher level of risk, but that is part of the fun!
Playing for Value. If you are playing for value, take it very serious. Look at each bet as an investment. The idea of making money in the long run is to make bets on favorable odds, where the betting sites have undervalued certain outcomes. Stick to more conventional bets, mainly the match winner. This way tends to be less exciting because to take it serious you have to commit hours and hours each event to determine value.
The Pitch. Conditions of the pitch from stadium to stadium vary. The difference can make a significant difference in how the game is played and how various players preform.
The Venue. Consider home or away as teams often preform better when they have a supportive crowed behind them. Research to see past performance in the stadium of the different teams if this history is available.
Don’t Forget the Weather! Like in other sports, wet games tend to produce lower scores, whereas better conditions will provide amble scoring opportunities. This also includes wind speed and direction, as well as day or night games. Make sure to check the tendencies of the teams playing in various conditions. Do they play well in particular conditions vs their opponents?
