We all know that cricket the religion and the most popular sport in India. This passion for sports has brought the trend of fantasy sports as it engages the ardent fans to their favourite sports. Online cricket games allow the fans to enjoy the matches in their television sets and also win prizes playing the games.
Your team competes with others entered in the same tournament, contest or league, and those players with the highest points get awarded as per the fantasy rules. Here we have list down 5 tips for the fantasy cricket players:
1) Ensure your player is playing on that day
The last thing you want to do is select a team of players that aren’t even playing in the real game. Avoid players who have been benched all season and avoid players who are even slightly in doubt of playing that particular match, due to injury or whatever other reason.
2) Don’t rely on merit
One thing you should never forget is that you must choose FORM over REPUTATION. The likes of popular players have been brilliant picks always. The players at form in 2015 are not likely to perform so well in 2018. Why not select a lesser known person, who have been running on some brilliant form and can prove in the matches.
3) Do a pitch report
No, we’re not asking you to fly down to place to check the pitches everyday but do a little homework about the pitch before choosing your team. Some pitches have become fast-paced pitch as compared and some are spin-friendly pitch. Similarly, some are two-paced wicket aiding the slower bowlers. Hence, choose your teams accordingly!
4) Select top order batsmen
You don’t want to be selecting batsmen who won’t even get a chance to bat in the game. Select your batsmen in such an order so that they can play in the top four. It is no use if they can’t bat and because of that, you cannot get any point.
5) Strike bowlers
You don’t want to be picking bowlers who just have low economy rates. Pick wicket taking bowlers, even if they have a tendency of giving away more runs. Pick bowlers who may get hit for a six, but their wicket taking ability is much higher.
