Fantasy Cricket – Forgotten History of Cricket in USA

We have given our heart to the cricket sport and daily fantasy cricket games. The new 11Wickets app proves our love for the cricket. This ancient sport, cricket shouts out loud its fascinating history from different corners of the planet. United States of America is one of them.

It is widely believed that England has popularized cricket as a sport and has taken over to other nations. It is normally believed that United States of America does not take active part in this sport or play fantasy cricket. However, United States of America has a cricket team which is an associate of ICC.

Since United States of America was also a colony of British Empire, Cricket was played by British colonists in North America by the start of the 18th century. It is often called the first arranged team sport and the 1st major team game in America.

Cricket in America

Cricket in America operates by the United States of America Cricket Association, whose performance is lessened by modest funds due to cricket’s insufficient popularity compared to other American sports. Cricket in America is not as popular as baseball and is the least popular in all commonwealth nations. A few reasons for this are –

Baseball is a bit very much like cricket as it is likewise played with bat and ball. However it is brief and from 20th century it has eclipsed cricket and its recognition is increasing. An additional reason was that in 1909 when the ICC was actually organized as the Imperial Cricket Conference it had been open only to Commonwealth nations and therefore ruled out the US from taking part in the sport at the greatest level.

The U.S. presented its international tournament debut at the 1979 World Cup qualifier in England.

Lately in April 2018, the ICC granted complete Twenty20 International (T20I) status to every one of its members. For that reason, all Twenty20 games played between the United States of America and another international side after 1 January 2019 would have been a full T20I.

Therefore, from January 2019, the last year, US cricket team are even arranging international T20 games and hope we can see it and play fantasy cricket at 11wickets App with its best performing players.

Fantasy Cricket – Top 10 Shots in Cricket Games

The batsmen nowadays pull off great shots to the joy of daily fantasy cricket lovers. Even the advent of T20 cricket has seen batsmen pulling off extraordinary shots much to the wrath of the bowlers.

We bring you a list of shots which are played by batsmen on a regular basis and give an adrenaline rush to the spectators. Read on and install to play fantasy cricket online at 11wickets App:

Cover Drive:

The cover drive still is the bread and butter of batsmen. It is normally played to a half-volley on the 4th stump. A batsman just leans on it and tries to stroke it through the covers and hopes to cut the gap. In the modern era, loads of batsmen, particularly on true pitches, play this shot on the up i.e. to deliveries which are pitched further away from them.

Straight Drive

For a batsman, there is no better feeling than hitting the ball back to where it came from i.e. back past the bowler. As a spectator, the straight drive is one of the loveliest shots to witness and includes a lot of practice to nail it.

Upper Cut

This shot is played to a ball pitched short and wide. The batsman sits back and climbs into the delivery to send the ball over point or third man. While playing this shot, a batsman tries to extend both their hands to put a lot of power behind the shot.

Dilscoop/Ramp Shot

One of the toughest shots to execute, a batsman tries to manoeuver the field while using the pace of the ball to send the ball over the wicket-keeper’s head or to the right of him.

Switch Hit

The idea behind this shot is to open up the field and exploit gaps which most batsmen wouldn’t find unless they switch their stance. This particular stroke is mostly played against the spinners and is also often employed to smoother the turn-on rank turners.

Helicopter Shot

This is the trademark shot of India’s former skipper, MS Dhoni. This shot involves a lot of power which comes from the wrist.

Natmeg Shot

This is an unorthodox stroke, Natalie Sciver, the English cricketer discovered this shot during the Women’s World Cup 2017. She played this shot at toe-crushing Yorkers and found a way to sneak it between the legs off.

360 Shot

This is one of the toughest and dangerous shots to execute. AB de Villiers is famous for this shot. He manipulates the field and walks across the stumps to fast bowlers before going down on one knee to send the ball over fine leg for six.

Pull and Hook

Both these shots are horizontal played off the backfoot. Both these shots are played to send a statement across to the bowler who wants to intimidate the batsman by pitching the ball short and into the body.

When you take everything that soccer players wear together, it’s called the “kit”. The kit includes the jersey, shorts, socks, cleats and shoes, and shin guards. Goalkeepers often wear gloves as well.

Shin Guards

Goalies and forwards generally have the lightest weight shin guards while midfielders and, especially, defensemen wear heavier, more sturdy shin guards.

Soccer shin guards

Try to get shin guards that are comfortable and don’t hinder your running too much, but at the same time offer good protection. Even if they seem really uncomfortable at first, you will get used to them after a while, and when you get kicked in the shin really hard, you will be glad you have them!

Other Equipment Rules

Players are responsible for wearing equipment that will not endanger themselves or other players. This includes wearing jewelry or sharp spikes on the shoes.

Fun Facts

  1. Adidas has supplied the World Cup ball since 1970. Each ball has a unique design and name. The 2010 World Cup ball was the Jabulani.
  2. Shin guards were invented in 1874 by Samuel Widdowson, a player for Nottingham Forest.
