Women’s Cricket Betting Tips & Advice

Women’s cricket can be traced back to 1745 but it has only recently started sharing a similar limelight to that of the men’s game. The growth of the sport has forced spectators to take note while more and more cricket boards make their women’s teams professional, opposed to semi pro.

Its growth means it has become a very popular betting market among punters as stats and figures can be found easily as that of the men’s game.

Women’s Cricket History

Much like men’s cricket the women’s game evolved from England and Australia in the 1700’s. It was in 1958 when the first International Women’s Cricket Council was formed that the game started to really spread among other nations.

In the modern area women’s cricket is far more focused on One Day Internationals and T20 cricket as that is what draws the crowds. In the history of women’s cricket only 131 Test matches have taken place, the majority of those featured Australia and England.

While women’s cricket has grown through the ages it was barely noticeable, especially when compared to the men’s game. While the two are still far apart in terms of professionalism and funding the last decade has seen women’s cricket grow to proportions few would have imagined.

The women’s game is now played across all the traditionally major cricketing nations while Netherlands and Denmark are also keen participants. 

It is hard to ignore the impact T20 cricket has had on the women’s game since the mid 2000’s and now tournaments such as the Women’s Big Bash League in Australia attract more spectators than some men’s T20 tournaments around the globe.
