Punters lacking in patience when it comes to cricket betting may find some solace in focusing on Twenty20 matches. Rather than rumbling on for five days like Test matches, Twenty20 matches are over in a few hours and some different analysis needs to be completed beforehand to ensure a successful Twenty20 bet.
Look for certain assets from bowlers and batsmen in Twenty20 betting
In terms of bowling, an ability to vary speed and keep the ball pitched up are vital assets. Meanwhile, spinners can be largely effective, especially those that can turn the ball both ways and disguise this well. Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi and Albie Morkel of South Africa are known to be impactful and could be profitable T20 betting options to be top wicket takers.
Batsman with power, invention and an ability to play a host of shots largely fare best in T20 cricket. Players who can blast the ball to the boundary are effective, but there is an equal emphasis on a crafty glance down the leg side or a little flick over a wicket keeper. Eoin Morgan possesses both these attributes for England, while Australia are blessed with David Hussey and David Warner.
Tournaments are a key focus of Twenty20 betting
There are many tournaments now on the cricket calendar dedicated solely to the T20 form of the game. Obviously the biggest is the T20 World Cup, of which England are the current holders. The India Premier League has also grown in stature in recent years and the Chennai Super Kings may prove a team to follow in the T20 betting in the future.
