IPL Fantasy Cricket Tips: While you are making a fantasy team for the IPL games, it’s mandatory to pick at least one wicket-keeper from either of the two sides that are taking part in the game. If you want, you can pick more than one keeper as well, something that you couldn’t have done while playing fantasy cricket in the past. However, the fantasy apps now allow you to pick more than one keeper and my IPL fantasy tips would be to always pick the keepers from both sides.
Because the first choice keepers that most of the IPL sides have, they either bat at the top of the order or they are really explosive finishers. Even if they come lower down the order, they are capable enough to score 50-60 runs and earn points for the fans. My IPL fantasy cricket tips to anyone would be to always have two keepers in your dream team.
Here are 3 wicket-keepers who will give maximum points this season:
#1 Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant doesn’t open the batting for Delhi Capitals, but he doesn’t come lower down the order either. He bats at no. 4 for them and walks out there when the spinners are bowling which gives him the chance to score runs quickly because he is a wonderful player of spin, especially if a left-arm spinner or a leg spinner is bowling. In case a left-arm spinner or a leg spinner is bowling to Pant, the ball turns into him and he can hit the ball in the arc.
My IPL fantasy tips would be to never ignore Pant if he is one of the keepers available to be picked because if you don’t pick him and your opponent in the head to head league picks him, there are chances that you will lose money.
#2 Jos Buttler
Not only is Jos Buttler one of the best stroke players in the world, but Rajasthan Royals also makes the most of his abilities by slotting him right at the top of the order. Buttler is comfortable against both pace and spin bowling and since he has the opportunity to bat full 20 overs for the Royals, the chances of him putting on a big score for Rajasthan are quite high.
If there is a game between Rajasthan and Delhi, my IPL cricket fantasy tips would be to have both Pant and Buttler in your dream team straightaway.
#3 Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock is also an opener just like Buttler and he bats in the power-play where he has the chance of making the most of the scoring opportunities as he just has to clear the infield.
Not only has De Kock got the power game, but he is also very good at finding gaps too and is one of the most dangerous batsmen to deal with during the power-play period.
De Kock would also be one of the players we would suggest picking in your dream team if you are to go by my IPL fantasy tips, simply because of the position that he bats and the skill-set that he has.
