There’s nothing quite like an English summer. Indeed most English summers aren’t like summer at all and as the Open field struggle with the breeze at Royal Birkdale down in London there’s a fair few Cricket fans with their fingers crossed for a decent weekend’s sunshine as England and India square off for the Women’s World Cup final at Lords. Just which of the sides will win is, of course, still up in the air so lets take a look at the Women’s cricket odds being doled out to both sides by the likes of Bet365.
England reaching a World Cup final of any variety at all is a bit of a miracle, so rare that we still harp on about 1966 as if all winners since then were merely impersonators of the real winners, the English. That we’ve managed this in Cricket, a game we are notoriously bad at, is yet more proof that anything can happen if you give it enough time, and that if you like to bet on sports in the UK there’s bound to be an event soon that will entertain you. Women’s cricket being just one of those available at Bet365.
The growing popularity of this sport still attempting to battle through the inherent sexism of the cricketing authorities, the media and most of the fans, have proven to have legs and the skill and professionalism of these ladies has shone through much of the mean spirited misogynistic attitudes if you’re already a fan of women’s cricket odds are that you prove my point, however this World Cup final will put both these teams on the map, and could well be the tipping point of popular perceptions of the sport.
India Vs England At Lords For The World Cup Final
Both sides slipped into the final with close fought semi-finals, India beat Australia by just 36 runs, the Aussies all out with 11 balls left for 245. This was a close run reply but India had stamped their authority on the match with an unbeaten 171 from Harmanpreet Kaur and Mithali Raj will be hoping her side will show as much determination at Lords for the final where the women’s cricket odds favour their opposition, England, who also very nearly didn’t make it just nipping by South Africa at the end.
England were only set 216 for 6 by South Africa but made slightly heavy weather of it given most people in the UK gambling laws of average performance would see even a mediocre side overhaul that target would be right, and Heather Knight will hope they can do better than merely win by tail-end 2 wickets on the weekend. Anya Shrubsole kept her nerve but the women’s betting odds favoring her side might not be enough to convince her a win is in the bag, and frankly, it really isn’t. This will be a great match.
Find Women’s Cricket Odds At Bet365 This Weekend
Sure, the bookies like Bet365 have England down as favorite, but they’ve not demonstrated a clear superiority over the side from India as yet and whilst the women’s cricket odds online are a good indication both their luck on the day and that ghastly British weather could both play a part in who comes out of this one a winner. Bet365 give England a rather tasty 8/15 to come out of Sunday a winner, whilst India have to settle with 6/4, but as those odds show, it’s really still all to play for.
Naturally you can also find books at Bet365 and the like for wagers like the time of the first wicket, or which team will score the most sixes, who’ll win the toss and, of course, the women’s cricket odds on a player scoring a century are also listed, however I think for purists this Sunday’s game will be about the winners and there’ll be plenty in the UK gambling news coverage on Monday of an English victory will in some small way cement the fortunes of women’s cricket, and India winning might induce the same too.
