Not a football fan? The live cricket streaming present at 1xBet can also help you to see some unexpected occurrences that happen to cricket teams.

The goalkeeper is the last line of defense, and without them, the team may struggle to prevent the opposing team from scoring. However, teams have several strategies they can use to deal with this situation. At the 1xBet website you will also find that it is possible to watch some live cricket broadcasts and streamings, where unusual occurrences can also be seen.

Moving the pieces in the field

First, the most common strategy is to substitute a backup goalkeeper. Most teams have a backup goalkeeper on the bench, and they will usually be brought on immediately after the starting goalkeeper is sent off. Punters can also make a 1xBet online cricket bet on whether a goalkeeper is likely to be sent off or not.

The steps that are usually seen after a situation of this kind include:

  • A backup goalkeeper is brought into the game
  • Of course, an outfield player needs to be taken out to bring this substitute goalkeeper
  • And also, since the affected team will have one less player, most likely they will adopt a more defensive strategy

At 1xBet you can also perform an online cricket bet, which also includes the possibilities of whether someone will leave the game.

Desperate measures

Teams may decide to play without a goalkeeper as well. However, this strategy is used very rarely and only when the team is trailing and needs to score. This has an obvious drawback. The team that had their goalkeeper sent off will have no one to protect their goal. If you think that this can happen in a football match, watch it on the live stream football India 1xBet now.

A not so desperate measure is to put an outfield player as a goalkeeper. This is not as strange as it sounds. There are many outfield players that like to perform as goalkeepers during training sessions. As such, they are the most prepared to protect the goal of their teams when their official keeper is out of the game.

This is normally done when a goalkeeper has been sent off and there are no more substitutions available. In other words, this is mostly seen when the team who got the red card for their goalie is unable to substitute an outfield player for a backup goalie. Yellow cards, red cards, and many other occurrences that happen in football games can be seen through the live football streams provided by the 1xBet India site.
