The love for cricket seen in India is seldom seen anywhere else in the world. After all, people don’t arrive in hordes to see, say, a kabaddi or hockey match, as they do at a one-day cricket fixture. They don’t spend couch time on, say, volleyball as they do to watch a T20 contest. So, when online fantasy sports were launched back in 2001, people naturally showed a greater inclination toward playing fantasy cricket rather than fantasy football or other sports. KMPG-IFSG’s report found that 74% of online gamers play fantasy sports at least 1 to 3 times a week, and most of the users prefer cricket.
So, if you love the game of cricket and want to keep yourself engaged for hours, you can consider a fantasy cricket app download. Once the app is downloaded, you have to register and create an account. But, that’s not all. You may know all the rules of the game, but you still need to learn a few tricks to trump the other fantasy cricket players.
Here, take a look at 3 pro tips to help you win fantasy cricket in 2021.
- Always analyze the performance of the real players during team selection
Even though fantasy cricket is not actual cricket that is played on the ground, but a lot rides on the performance and form of the real cricket players. You should not make the mistake of selecting your favorite players for your online fantasy team over the players who are currently performing well. So, keep a track of the recent performances of the players and make a wise decision.
- Don’t forget to select all-rounders
Most people focus on selecting the best batsmen and bowlers for their fantasy cricket team and they forget about the all-rounders. All-rounders are players who contribute in more than one department, which means that they can be great bowlers and great batsmen. These players can earn points for you when they are batting, as well as, bowling. Also, points can be earned for their fielding.
- Trust your instincts and make last-minute changes after the toss
When you are taking part in a fantasy league, you will be given a few minutes to make a few adjustments to your team. After the toss, the list of the final playing 11 will be released of the match and you can make a few changes based on that list. It might be that you have to drop a player who was part of your team, but not in the playing 11 after the toss.
Besides these, you should never forget to study up on the weather and pitch reports of the current or upcoming matches. This will determine your player selection since not all players are comfortable playing in all three pitch types.
So, keep these tips in mind when you’re playing fantasy cricket and you should be able to ace it in no time. Download the fantasy cricket app and get ready to experience the thrill of the game, but virtually.
