I’m looking forward to the Ashes and if the markets are anything like the last time the Ashes were held in the UK, we could be in for a treat. I remember visiting Betfair’s offices just after the last test finished. It had turnover of £32m or something similar. There was a lot excitement and activity last time around.
I must admit to not having done much Cricket trading. It still remains a relatively untouched area for me. I have carefully modelled horse racing, soccer and tennis but cricket is still on the edge of my agenda.
I know it’s something I would like to get into and I know some excellent cricket traders, but unfortunately there are only 24 hours in the day. There are some good blogs out there so if you are interested in getting involved have a nose around them. I’ll see if I can get a list up at some point. For this series I may have a dabble but until I know what I am doing it will remain just that.
The only hint I can offer at the moment is that it seems the weather can be an important contributor to odds movement as well as the underlying score.
