Learn about how cricket betting works in India and the popularity of cricket betting. Check out the popular online cricket betting sites and a detailed description of how your betting process works.

Betting in India

India is extremely specific in terms of laws regarding sports betting. The Public Gambling Act of 1867 prohibits betting and, in general, gambling houses. Also, any person is not allowed to register in such establishments. This means that online sports betting is set to flourish here. Why? Because the bookmakers who offer their services locate their online platforms abroad, which makes it is possible to circumvent the ban on gambling establishments being registered in India. Also, no one from the country visits any organization that is banned. 

Cricket betting

Cricket is a special topic for punters from India, as it is the national sport here and has gained incredible popularity. Bettors can bet on the sport all year round through online bookmakers' websites and apps as well as watch live streaming. 

Cricket betting sites in India

In order to bet on cricket from a computer, online cricket betting sites will need to be used. Cricket betting sites are a multitude of web pages linked together by cricket betting themes. This is where the bookmaker has its content and also offers services to its users. This can include online betting on various sporting events, varieties of betting types, many matches, and odds. 

Some of the most popular bookies in cricket are:


A bookmaker that has been in the sports betting business since 1994 and is still successfully competing with other organizations.


A sportsbook established in 2006 in Asia and originally intended for this territory. However, Betway has very quickly earned worldwide recognition.


Founded in the year 2000, the company is headquartered in Stoke-on-Trent and has earned the loyalty of its customers through sweat and blood throughout its existence.
