Boxing Day Test Betting

It’s as Aussie as a dual-flush toilet and more traditional than Christmas, and the Boxing Day Test 2014 is coming to a ground near you (if you live near the MCG in Melbourne). Having spent the previous day with family, Boxing Day’s a great day to go to the cricket, even if you hate cricket. There’s a lot to love: the tradition, the jeering crowd, the red-stained white uniforms – and that’s just in the queue for pies! But seriously, a sunny day out at one of the world’s greatest sporting cauldrons watching Australia take on the best of the summer just can’t be beaten. And it makes for some great Boxing Day Test betting too!

Test Cricket’s kind of like the grandma of cricketing formats. But this doesn’t stop the Boxing Day Test regularly pulling the biggest crowds of the summer. And you wanna know why? Just like your grandma, Test Cricket is steeped in history and tradition – and with so much information at our fingertips and instant social-media gratification, slowing down to smell the willow on leather once in a while is good for the soul.
