The Thrill Of The 2020 ICC T20 World Cup
Those who have not grown up in a country where cricket is a way of life may find the game confusing. It is filled with technical detail – and can be a boring experience- especially when faced with the 5-day version of the game which relies heavily on strategy. But the ICC realized that dwindling crowd numbers were a warning sign that the popularity of the game was in decline- especially among younger viewers. The decision was made to launch a 50 over version of the game which would reward those in search of big hitters and cunning bowling choices. But even this version took a while to deliver a victor. Then the ICC launched a 20 over version. The even more shortened version of the game delivered big hitters – and upped the tempo.
2020 Will see the best teams in the world take to the field to complete for the 2020 ICC World Cup Trophy – and the spectacle will have fans on the edge of their seats. Ht will be a global spectacle – hosted by Australia it will be televised across the globe.
It is also of great interest to those who want to involve themselves in online betting on the outcomes of matches where the best of the best will be locking horns. But there are also minnows who could provide an upset. Namibia will be facing Bangladesh in their opening match. The Netherlands will face Scotland (the Netherlands is continually underrated). On Saturday the 24th of October 2020 the Big Guns will be taking to the field. Australia vs Pakistan, South Africa will take on India. It is those matches that should provide the fireworks that the 20 over game is well known for. The next day will see the fast bowlers of the West Indies (and their big hitters) match wits with the Men from the Land of the Long White Cloud – New Zealand. The action will be fast and furious thereafter.
Some pundits have Australia or England as favorites. Others still back India to take the glory. Perennial underperformers South Africa may have their tails in the air after the national Rugby Union team lifted the Webb Ellis trophy for the men’s Rugby World Cup final in Japan 2019. However – it is Pakistan who are top-rated in this abbreviated form of the game.
What is undoubted is the fact that if you blink, if you lose focus in the 20 over format – you will be severely punished. It is high octane entertainment. Punters will be looking at men like Chris Gayle from the West Indies and MJ Guptill from New Zealand to hit the ball high and long. But there are many others who will reward viewers with power and poise.
For those who want to enjoy online betting the prospect of the tournament is mouth-watering. Sites like cricketbetting-tips.in offer the latest news and player stats – and some insight into how punters should be placing their bets. Get in on the action today.
