Fantasy Cricket – Walk Down Memory Lane of Australian Cricket

In the modern cricket, Australian cricket team has been at the top for many years. Perhaps the recent ball tampering scandal has hampered the team a lot but whenever we get a match which has Australian team in the daily fantasy cricket, we cannot stop from selecting them.

Many of the top players of the Australian still play well and we can trust them to bring us points for the online fantasy cricket at 11wickets app we have made.

The history of Australian cricket is dated back to more than 200 year ago. Australia is a fascinating and diverse nation with a very vibrant history. Researchers say that the oldest living culture in the world, the Aboriginal Australians, have first arrived on the Australian mainland by boat and lived there for at least 50,000 years.

The beginning

In 1788, the first fleet of 11 British ships arrived at Botany Bay to establish New South Wales as Penal Colony. More than 162,000 convicts were sent to Australia from Great Britain. The first cricket match is recorded at Sydney in December 1803. A report of Sydney Gazette on 8 January 1804 suggested that the sport was already well established in the infant colony. By 1826, many clubs were established. In 1838, arguably Australia’s most exclusive and influential cricket club was formed in Victoria, the Melbourne Cricket Club.

The Inter-colonial cricket matches began with a visit by cricketers from Victoria to Tasmania in February 1851. The first tour by an English team to Australia was in 1861–62. In 1868, a team consisting of Aboriginal cricketers became the first Australian team to tour England. The team played 47 matches, winning 14, drawing 19 and losing 14.

More and more of cricket sports

More tours by the English teams had been done in 1873-74. The tour had the most notable cricketer of that era, WG Grace. Another tour was done by the Englishmen in 1876-1877 and that season was notable for a match between a combined XI from New South Wales and Victoria and the Englishmen play in Melbourne Cricket Ground from 15th to 19th March.

This match was later on recognised as the first test match of the Australian cricket history. The match was won by Australia by 45 runs. Charles Bannerman’s unbeaten 165 led to the win. The result of this match was seen by Australians and Englishmen as a reflection of the rising standard of Australian cricket. And thus, started the journey of Australian cricket and slowly and steadily Australian team got better and dominated in the international cricket scenario and also in the online cricket games!

Here are five facts you will be amazed to read:

  1. Until 1979 tests matches in Australia used to have 8 balls per over.
  2. Australia is the only nation to have hosted a 7-Test series during the 1970-71 Ashes.
  3. Australia has remained unbeaten at Lord’s Cricket Ground for 75 year.
  4. Australian team is the only team in cricket history to have won a Test series after trailing 0-2
  5. Sir Donald Bradman, the greatest batsman, has only hit 6 sixes in his entire cricket career.

Fantasy Cricket – Iconic Cricket Pitches of the World

Pitch conditions play a massive role in how a cricket match plays out and based on that points can be earned in the online fantasy cricket contests. Usually, pitches are groomed to fit international standards; but sometimes games are disrupted by unplayable pitches.

A pitch is affected by several factors like dew, weather condition, wind and ground. This means, it also affects the scoring points of daily fantasy cricket games at 11wickets app

Here are some of the most iconic pitches around the world and play fantasy cricket online.

Saravanamuttu Stadium, Colombo

Saravanamuttu Stadium, also known as the Colombo Oval, was the host to India’s warm-up match against the Sri Lankan Board XI before the real series back in 2001. The first two days were quite normal and the Sri Lankan Board XI managed to get 326 runs on the board before being bowled out. But, on the third day, the bounce turned out to be quite odd and the ball rose almost to the shoulder level even from good length! The game was suspended then, just after 0.2 overs of the third day and the umpires stated that the P. Saravanamuttu Stadium pitch was not fit to play and was unsafe.

WACA, Perth

WACA stands for Western Australia cricket association, and the ground, normally termed as Perth, has a pitch recognized to add extra jump to every ball delivery that kisses it. Cricketers mainly have to play out of their skins to win a match there. The concept of bat first or second hardly matters for this pitch, and arguably this is the fastest pitch in the world which demands more application from batsmen than somewhere else.

In south of Western Australia – a place Waroona from where curator Sam Sutherland imported the clay in a bid to revive the carry bowlers used to get at WACA pitch in the seventies. This was completed after the 2010-11 Test amid Australia and England. Earlier in 2000 an interstate match had to be called off when umpires decided the pitch was too risky to play.

Sabina Park, Jamaica

Even the best of pitches turns to be a graveyard for the batsmen, if ignored by the ground staff. England found that out in the first Test of their series in the West Indies in 1998, when they were sent packing for 51 at Sabina Park, much to their distress.

In reality, Kingston is one of the few venues that have often offered support to the bowlers over the last few years. Corey Collymore bagged 7 for 57 against Sri Lanka in 2003 and 7 for 78 against Pakistan in 2005, Steve Harmison took 7 for 12 in 2004, while Stuart Clark nailed 5 for 32 in 2008. The conflicting bounce is very treacherous apart from the cracks that make judging the line tough. During that Test match in 1998 between West Indies and England, many were left bruised because of the poor condition of the pitch.

Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi:

Delhi has been a Traditional Test centre for India. And Kotla is where Anil Kumble routed the Pakistanis to become only the second bowler after Jim Laker to take 10 wickets in a Test innings. But the pitch here came under harsh criticism in 2009. The fifth and final ODI of a series against Sri Lanka which India had previously won was suspended after the pitch was deemed too risky for match. The pitch was later classified as out of condition in the match referees report and handed a 12 month ban by the ICC. Run by the DDCA and founded way back in 1883 this was a blot on the ground’s famous history. Till date officials are wary before awarding it a big game.

Kingsmead, Durban:

It has seen lots of batting collapses over the years and whether it come to Tests or ODIs pacers just rule the roosts here. If we see decade wise fast bowling averages it might have got fairly higher but the extra grass left these days more than recompenses. It is easily the fastest pitch in South Africa and maybe the second fastest in the world after Perth. It is no shocker the top 8 wicket takers on this ground are all pacers. Playing here even South Africa are not privilege to the home benefit as even military medium quicks extract ample and dilemma the strong South African batting line up.

Fantasy Cricket – It’s for the Love of Cricket

Hey cricket lovers! Or do we greet you as cricket-crazy fans? Today we are not going to talk about any statistics, tips to play online fantasy cricket or records made by the cricketers. We are going to talk about cricket, just cricket.

Cricket in India is merely not a sport, it is an emotion. It is one of those things which unite India beyond all diversities of culture and religion. The cricket is a lazy game as compared to football, kabaddi, basketball or tennis, but still, it is the most loved sport in the nation. And now, with the popularity of online cricket games, the love for cricket has reached another height.

Wins and losses do not keep the Indian cricket fans away from the game. When India loses any match terribly, there are fans who inclines to change their interest to some other sport. Sadly, the same people will be the first ones to watch the next game, hoping India emerge successfully. There were neutrals who ask people to support the athletics at the Olympics and also other sports; we have seen movies and books screening India’s success stories in other sporting activities, but none have been successful in changing our love towards cricket.

Cricket is addiction for Indians

Cricket in India is more like an addiction. Once you begin following the Men in Blue, you are unable to simply avoid them. There are not many sports, which will make your heat beat faster at every ball or strike of bat.

Cricket is not something which is played on grounds and appropriate green tracks. It is played everywhere in India and now it is played online as well, in the form of daily fantasy cricket. Gender and age usually do not keep Indians faraway from playing the sport.

Every Indian child knows Mahi and Yuvraj Singh. Everybody over an age of 18 would always remember Sharjah Cup and Natwest Finals throughout their life. These individuals are not merely idols, but they are household names. Although they are not as great as Messi or Federer, however they undoubtedly have a loyal fan base compared to the last mentioned names.

You will find people who follow particular superstitions, say sitting on the same chair for every Indian match, which might make an outsider go crazy. It is because folks do not follow cricket in India, they simply fall in love with this beautiful sport.

Let’s us talk about these bizarre rules while you prepare your dream fantasy cricket team.

Leg before wicket is in fact just about anything before wicket

A batsman can be announced out for LBW, leg before wicket, even if the ball touches a helmet, gloves or any other portion of the body (not always the leg), so long as the part of the body that may be making connection with the ball is front of the wicket.

The keeper’s bad luck

No matter the reason, if the ball touches the helmet placed behind wicketkeeper, the batting side will likely be granted 5 runs for nothing at all.

Double batting

A batsman will be announced out if he hits the ball with his bat twice on purpose in a single ball bowled by the bowler. Inadvertent dual strikes are given not out.

Helmets are meant for protection, not for aiding in going for a catch
