The concept of Fantasy Cricket is on a roll, these days. It is one of the fastest-growing games all around the cricketing fraternity. Sites like Dream11, MyTeam11, Ballebaazi, etc have been offering a great sum of money to the users. However, Fantasy cricket is also about luck and the users need to be aware of certain tricks in order to perform and earn well. Here are some of those tips.
Distinguishing between formats
One very important thing which should be kept in mind while selecting the Captain and Vice-Captain of the fantasy team is the specification of different formats of the game. For example, it is somewhat risky to make a bowler the captain of the side in T20s while in the red-ball cricket, on the other hand, bowlers can fetch really good no. points. Especially in the subcontinental conditions, spinners often result in high benefits for the users.
Selecting strike players
The selection of the right kind of players also influences the results of fantasy cricket contests. Generally, choosing strike bowlers instead of the economical-ones yields better results as wickets earn more points than wicketless overs involving less no. of runs. Simultaneously, while selecting the batsman, users should mostly try to pick top-order batsmen since despite being good at their job, lower-order batsmen have a comparatively lesser chance of scoring more no. of runs.
Taking a look at the conditions
Even though fantasy cricket contests are largely about luck, users can do a bit of research and have a look at the pitch conditions. The users can keep the name of the grounds in mind and make sure that they pick the team accordingly. E.g. – Users can select more no. of batsmen and batting all-rounders when there is a flat track. The no. of bowlers could be increased when the game takes place at green decks and under overcast conditions.
Arranging coordination between the players
Coordinating between the players refers to maintaining the ratio of the players. It means that the users should make sure that they select players from both sides with the perfect combination. Like, if they select the majority of a batsman from Team A, they shall make sure that they do not select more bowlers of Team B as only one of the above two can perform well in a game. Considering this can prove out to be very handy in fantasy cricket contests.
Take players based on current form
The past records of the players hardly matter in Fantasy cricket. The contests are about performing on that specific, irrespective of their previous-day performance. For example, someone like MS Dhoni was once the finest ever batsman going around, however, in current times, his form has been below par and it’d be better to pick a younger wicket-keeper batsman, who can do better on that certain day?
