The IPL, the Big Bash, the Hundred, Test Match cricket, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup…….is that enough for you?
We reckon so, and to further enhance your enjoyment of all things cricket in 2022, bet365 have compiled a series of specials dedicated to the sport in the New Year and all the possibilities that it brings.
Beginning in April, the IPL has become one of the standout competitions in the cricketing calendar. In the build-up to the event, bet365 will have hundreds of markets available, as well as our industry leading In-Play product covering any single match. Until then however, we’ll be concentrating on the big hitters, the batters.
KL Rahul is the 11/2 favourite to be the top Indian batter in IPL 2022, closely followed by Virat Kohli at 13/2 and RD Gaikwad at 8/1. Rahul scored over 600 runs for the Punjab Kings while captaining the team last year and is widely expected to lead the run charge once again. With two new franchises, Lucknow and Ahmedabad, there will be even more matches and more opportunities for Rahul to score big.
An Englishman is the favourite in the Top Rest of the World market, and it’s no surprise who. Jos Buttler, at 6/1, had an outstanding T20 Cricket World Cup, notching 205 runs in England’s run to the semi-finals and is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous batters in the white-ball format of the game. With over 2000 career IPL runs to his name, it’s no wonder that he heads up the betting.
We don’t have to wait long for the next T20 international tournament as a fixture backlog means we have both the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup taking place in 2022. bet365 have a couple of 2022 specials for both English and Aussie fans to get stuck into. England to win the Women’s World Cup and Men’s T20 World Cup has been priced up at 25/1, while Australia can be backed to do the double at 9/1.
India are the outright favourites for the Men’s T20 World Cup at a short-priced 3/1, and many fancy them to improve on their disappointing performance at the tournament in 2021.
