Test cricket format

Test cricket is the form of the sport of cricket where each game is allotted five days. In Test cricket, a standard day consists of three sessions, with each session comprising 30 bowling overs. The break time between these sessions is 40 minutes for lunch and 20 minutes for tea.

The first session of a Test match day is played before lunch and the second one is played post-lunch and before tea. The last session of the day is played post-tea until the umpire declares ‘stumps’, which means the end of the day’s play.

However, the time of sessions may get altered under certain circumstances. For instance, if there is a loss of playing time due to bad weather, then the session times may be adjusted to make up for the lost time. Also, the break may be taken immediately if the change of innings occurs close to a scheduled break.

Test match betting tips

While it’s impossible to correctly predict the outcome of any Test match, considering some aspects and factors will help you in having a more memorable and entertaining betting experience. Some of the most important factors to take into account are:

The form

The current form of the two teams will help you in assessing which side will have an edge, though it doesn’t always confirm that the side on a hot-streak will be dominant in the game.

The pitch

In cricket, the conditions of the pitch tend to favor some particular types of batsman or bowler. So, it’s important for you to take a look at how both the sides have fared at the match ground before placing your bets.

The weather

As you’d be already knowing, the weather conditions can have a major impact on a cricket game. For instance, the ball swings more in overcast weather conditions, making it harder for batsmen to bat. So, make sure you check the weather conditions before wagering on a Test match.

Also, you must have a proper bankroll strategy in place when betting on cricket online. While this won’t affect the final outcome in any way, it will help you in limiting your losses and make for a more entertaining cricket betting experience.
