All-Rounder Deandra Dottin Retires

A skillful sportsman is a gold mine not only for the team but also for sports betting platforms. Bettors from different countries feel confident about their predictions and win money placing bets on the best players. That is why the retirement of such sportsmen is always shocking news for the organization, fans, and bettors from both online and offline bookmakers who face problems making their sports predictions and placing a bet. The course of a game becomes unpredictable and as a result, winning chances are getting lower.

Cricket betting fans faced a significant loss on Monday morning. The famous cricketer from Barbados announced she is retiring from internationals citing a negative team environment. She posted a letter on her Twitter account and asked to regard it as a formal retirement from the senior women’s West Indies cricket team.
