Cricket betting odds at Coral
Played primarily across three different formats – Test matches, One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 (T20) matches – cricket offers plenty of variety to suit all sporting tastes. Test matches are the longest, lasting up to five days, while ODIs and T20s have limited overs per side, with each team batting a maximum of 50 overs in ODIs and 20 each in T20s.
At Coral, you can find some of the best cricket odds on every format, and every tournament. Whether you want to bet on the score after 60 overs, the number of boundaries scored by a player or team, the top wicket taker in each innings or how each batsman will be dismissed, we’ve got you covered with a comprehensive range of pre-match and In-Play markets.
Which competitions do we cover?
The inaugural World Test Championship final, held in England in June 2021, saw New Zealand triumph over India, and there’s plenty more action to look forward to across all three formats. If you fancy making your pick, you can have your say on the run scorers, wicket takers, match winners, trophy lifters and more.
A packed second half of the year, partly due to tours and tournaments postponed because of the pandemic, is set to see the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) take place before the T20 World Cup heads to India and the legendary Ashes get underway in Australia. We also offer cricket betting odds on other domestic tournaments, such as England’s T20 Vitality Blast, the Pakistan Super League and Australia’s Big Bash.
Indian Premier League
After exploding on to the cricket scene in 2008, the IPL has revolutionised T20 cricket, with the world’s most destructive batsmen and skilful bowlers being purchased each year by eight franchise teams. It has become one of the most viewed and financially valuable sporting tournaments in the world.
Mumbai Indians are the competition’s most successful side, with five titles to their name – winning both of the last two editions – while fierce rivals Chennai Super Kings have three. The IPL always features plenty of high-profile Indian players, including MS Dhoni, Ravi Ashwin and national team captain Virat Kohli, as well as international superstars like Steve Smith, AB de Villiers and Jofra Archer.
The 2021 edition was suspended in May due to coronavirus concerns in India but looks likely to be completed in the UAE in September and October. Returning shortly before the T20 World Cup, it could provide a valuable tune-up for the world’s best players as they head into the international competition. Who are you backing when the IPL makes its comeback? Have your say with our pre-match and In-Play cricket betting markets.
T20 World Cup
After being rescheduled from last year and moved from Australia to India, the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is set to be held in October and November. It’s a tournament known for intense action and dramatic finishes, notably during the 2016 edition when the West Indies’ Carlos Braithwaite crashed Ben Stokes for four consecutive sixes to defeat England in the final.
Looking to go one better this time out, Eoin Morgan’s side arrive as one of the favourites, having claimed the last white-ball ODI trophy on home soil in 2019. But India will be hoping, and perhaps expecting, to lift their second World Cup now that it’s being played in their own country in front of their millions of fans.
Can Virat Kohli’s side do the business? Or will the West Indies claim a record third World T20 title? And might we see the self-titled ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle rain down the sixes one final time? However you want to bet, find a range of T20 World Cup betting options and outright markets at Coral.
The Hundred launches this summer, a new 100-ball tournament that aims to attract an even wider audience to cricket.
This will be the shortest format of the game and the first to not count balls bowled by overs. Bowlers will instead bowl for five or 10 balls in a row, with each bowler changing ends after every 10 balls. Each innings will contain a Powerplay for the first 25 balls too, where only two fielders can be placed outside the inner circle.
As well as a new format, there’ll also be eight new city-based teams competing for the title, with double-headers of men’s and women’s matches in the same venue on the same day for most fixtures.
The eight teams competing in the inaugural season are Birmingham Phoenix, London Spirit, Manchester Originals, Northern Superchargers, Oval Invincibles, Southern Brave, Trent Rockets and Welsh Fire.
Each squad will be made up of 15 players, with a maximum of three overseas players. Every squad will feature one England red-ball contracted player, such as Ben Stokes at the Northern Superchargers or Jofra Archer with Southern Brave. There are plenty of big international names taking part too, including Kane Williamson, Quinton de Kock and Andre Russell.
We’ll be there for every ball throughout the tournament this summer, with all the latest odds as the action unfolds.
World Test Championship
Launched in 2019 to shake up the format, this league competition is their premier championship for Test match cricket. It features the nine top-ranked teams playing series and claiming points over two years, with the top two teams facing off in the World Test Championship final. The first-ever final was held this year in Southampton, with New Zealand coming out on top against India.
The 2021-23 edition begins with the England v India series on Wednesday 4th August. Are you backing Kohli’s side to repeat their crushing victory over Joe Root’s men earlier this year? Or can England rediscover their form on home soil and get their World Test Championship campaign off to a flying start?
And we can’t wait until England arrive down under for another fiercely contested Ashes series, set to begin at The Gabba in Brisbane on Wednesday 8th December. The tourists took a 4-1 battering last time out and failed to win back the urn on home soil in 2019, so it’s all to play for this year.
