Cricket Betting

 

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker

December 7, 2006

 

Sports betting:

Sport betting is nothing but an activity of predicting the results of a match by making a gamble on the result of the match or any other sporting event. Betting can be found in all sports including cricket and even individual sports. In countries like India, where cricket is like a religion, cricket betting is common.  Although, it is a common phenomenon, whether the country accepts is legally and morally, depends from country to country. Sport gambling is forbidden in North America, whereas the profession of book making (accepting sports wagers) is considered to be an honorable profession in many European nations. It is administrated and well regulated. Legalized sports betting including cricket betting is regarded as a hobby for fans all over the world. It is also believed that activities such as betting and gambling increase the popularity of the sport that is so concerned. If done in a legal way, it is sheer enjoyment and loads of fun. Looking at the other positive side of cricket gambling, it should not be forgotten that gambling is a way to economic development of the nation. Cricket is a popular sport and is almost like a religion in India. However, looking at the other aspect of gambling, it is also opined that the activity poses a threat to the integrity and the professionalism involved in the sport. History reveals that till date, several times there have been attempts on the part of gamblers to fix matches and several times have cricketers been trapped in such nets of betting and match- fixing thereby defaming their nations.

Betting can be of different kinds. Cricket betting can be done through bookmakers who can be legal or illegal depending upon the legal status of gambling in that country. These bookmakers are colloquially called bookies. However, internet betting has a dwindling status in the United States of America.

Betting incidents:   

Betting scandals have made newspaper headlines many times and many cricketing nations have been the target of ill fame because of their players participating in betting. Many times secrets have been divulged and then claims been made regarding their authenticity. The situation is complex and many leading cricketers have been alleged of match fixing.
