Best Indian cricketers to bet on

Cricket has become quite the sport of kings in India, where it is celebrated, revered and pretty much exists as the nation’s biggest sport. It’s played almost everywhere across the country, and the Indian national cricket team has won various huge events, including the Cricket World Cup (1983, 2011), the ICC World Twenty20 in 2007 and the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. Of course, these events and more have led to some amazing cricketers coming to light, which is why we’re here to celebrate and look at the best Indian cricketers to bet on in 2020.

Before you proceed with betting on anyone though, it’s important to locate a credible online sportsbook for such. There are plenty of them available online, but perhaps it would also be good to find one with mobile access for placing bets from any location. The Sportingbet mobile app for example, provides such services. Available for Android and iOS users, this mobile app loads up from your home screen and presents you all of the platform’s sports betting possibilities, including those associated with cricket.

Virat Kohli

There are many reasons why Virat Kohli has become the captain of the Indian cricket team, including his technical prowess as a top-order batsman. Within India, he plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Premier League (IPL), and has existed as the team’s captain since 2013. Amongst his countrymen, Kohli has the very best Test rating at 937 points, ODI rating at 911 points and T20I rating at 897 points. And just to add extra achievements to his collection, he possesses the world record for being the fastest batsman to 10,000 and 11,000 runs in ODI cricket.

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma plays cricket for Mumbai, captaining the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. As well as being a batsman, Sharma occasionally operates as a right-arm off break bowler. He’s also the vice-captain of the Indian national team in limited-overs formats. When it comes to records, Sharma holds the world record for the highest individual score by a batsman playing in a one-day international match, having managed to score 264 against Sri Lanka in November 2014. Additionally, he remains as the only player to have ever scored three double-centuries in that same form of international play.

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Jasbirsingh Bumrah became a big name in the 2015-2016 series when India went up against Australia. He was a replacement bowler for an injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar, although nobody really knew what to expect from him following moderate success with the Mumbai Indians in the IPL prior to this. Yet, he impressed, and Bumrah remains as the first Asian bowler to take five wickets in a test innings in South Africa, England and Australia within the same calendar year. Not only that, but he stands out due to his unorthodox action and his ability to bowl yorkers at the right time. Bumrah has a bright future ahead of him too, only being 26 years of age at the moment.
