First and most obvious way is the impact tech has had on cricket betting. In case you weren’t aware, cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, with over 2 billion fans around the globe. So, unsurprisingly, it is an incredibly popular betting sport. And thanks to developments in information technology, betting is now easier than ever.

While our recommendation is to always familiarize yourself with a sport you want to wager on, thanks to numerous websites that cover the Indian Super League live scores, and other important cricket events, it is now easier than ever to get a good understanding of who is ahead in the game. The mentioned website gives a detailed overview of teams, players, scores, and events, making it easy to get a better grasp of the game.

Not to mention, sports betting sites are now easier to use than ever. They are a lot more streamlined, they offer a ton of different bet types (most popular right now is live betting), and they also accept different forms of payment. Anything from credit cards to cryptocurrency. In other words, betting on cricket has been made a lot easier in 2023.

Simulated Reality League

Simulated Reality League cricket is the latest “big thing” in the cricket world. In fact, SRL is a huge development in sports in general. For those who are unfamiliar, simulated reality is a sort of “upgrade” on fantasy leagues.

To put it simply, fans of the sport take the role of a team manager. From there, all they have to do is “draft” real life players into their fantasy team and feed a computer a bunch of data regarding those players’ performances. From then, the computer simulates a game of cricket, and comes up with a solution on which team would win if they actually faced off.

SRL Cricket is quite popular, though nowhere near as popular as stuff like SRL football or SRL American football. Although it is worth noting that it is gaining quite a lot of traction. After all, as we said, cricket has billions of fans worldwide.

Ultra-Edge Tech

The creation of Ultra-Edge Technology has gone a long way in settling disputes on the cricket court. For the uninitiated, Ultra-Edge Tech is a system used to review whether the ball made contact with the bat or not. The way it works is actually pretty simple, though it may appear complex at a glance.

It is based on audio records of the ball smacking the bat. You see, when a ball hits the bat it produces a certain frequency. By eliminating all other sounds, and focusing specifically on that hit, a skilled technician could verify whether the ball hit the bat or the player. Of course, there is quite a bit more to this MIT-tested system. But, put in simple terms, it is basically as simple as all that.

The Ultra-Edge Technology, as we said, has gone a long way in settling disputes, and has been approved by the International Cricket Council, the highest authority on international cricket in the world.
