Test cricket-The traditional game format, which has been in progress since 1877, is now played on a five-day basis, and each game consists of two rounds. It is considered the pinnacle form because it tests the team over a longer period of time. The team needs to show endurance, technique and temperament under different conditions in order to perform well in this form.
ODI(One Day Internationals)-It is a pacier format, which started in 1971, but became popular in the 1980s. These are 50 rounds of one game on each side. In these games, a team with a combination of technique, speed and skill is expected to perform well. The pinnacle of ICC, the ICC Cricket World Cup, is held in this format every four years.
Twenty20 Internationals cricket-This game is the most popular game mode. Since 2005, this fastest and most exciting game mode has attracted a lot of attention. This type of game lasts about 3 hours. With huge shots and amazing defense, It is very popular among fans all over the world.

Cricket betting tips for beginners
Understand the team strengths
Some teams are good at defense, some teams are good at offense. That is to say, some teams are better at batting and some teams are better at pitching. Checking the lineup of each team helps bettors judge whether they tend to get as many points as possible or focus on pitching to get the opponent out as quickly as possible.
As cricket gets more and more attention from the world, there are more and more tournament series. The climate is different in every place. Pay attention to whether the team comes to a place where the climate changes greatly, these will affect the performance of the players.
The environment in each place leads to different soil textures. A flat wicket is suitable for batters because it can see the trajectory of the ball. The grass wicket is more suitable for fast bowlers. The ball will bounce due to stitches when it falls on the grass wicket. Dry wicket courts are more suitable for spin bowlers, and dry ground will make the spin more intense.
Summarizing the principles of cricket betting, bettors should first understand the rules of the game. Then bettors must understand the differences in game styles, as well as the game styles that different teams and players are good at. Finally, analyzing the fairway and weather conditions is more helpful to judge the possible outcome of the game.
