We are now living in a golden era of cricket. In the last decade no team has truly dominated the sport and this has given rise to some of the most exciting matches and series ever seen. Australia are the ICC World Cup Champions but have recently lost the Ashes series against England. South Africa are officially ranked the best side in the world but have never won the Cricket World Cup. Sri Lanka are the reigning T20 ICC World Champions. All of this goes to show the competitive nature of the sport, anyone can beat anyone, which is a treat for the fans and an opportunity for those who like to bet on cricket. William Hill offers markets on all the top cricket competitions including the Ashes, the ICC Cricket World Cup, Big Bash League, IPL and all the top test matches.
All the cricket covered in Australia and beyond
The Ashes series will be returning to Australia in 2017. Incredibly, England's latest win has tied the two nations at 32 wins each. Despite England holding the urn, Australia usually have what it takes to beat England Down Under and the 5-0 white-wash of 2013 will be firmly in the mind of the English players. This will be Steve Smith's first Ashes series as captain and he will hope to lead Australia through what is viewed as a transitional era. Despite losing the Ashes in 2015 Australia can seek consolation in the fact that they are World Champions having beat New Zealand in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup Final. The Cricket world already has one eye turned towards the next Cricket World Cup held in England, with South Africa, India, England and Australia all fancying their chances of a big victory. Australia will be hoping for another top bowling performance by Mitchell Starc who was voted player of the tournament in 2015.
