The advantage of playing cricket matches in home conditions is a phenomenon routinely observed by coaches, players, and commentators across various match formats. Interestingly though, the ‘home advantage’ (HA) phenomenon in cricket has received only marginal attention in the literature, despite being a sport played internationally. The exact mechanisms explaining why a HA occurs in cricket is currently unclear with the current chapter focusing on four possible contributors including home crowd, travel, rule effects, and environment familiarity. Further work is encouraged to elucidate the mechanisms of a HA effect in the unique sport of cricket.
