Fantasy Cricket Records – Most Wide in ODI Matches

In cricket, a “Wide Ball” is declared if the umpire thinks the batsman did not have a reasonable chance to score off the delivery. Umpires are much stricter on wide deliveries in the shorter format of cricket while being much more relaxed in test cricket. A wide ball also increases the scoreboard in daily fantasy cricket 

A wide delivery will add one run to the online fantasy cricket batting team and any runs scored by the batsman.  

Let’s check out the maximum number of wide gives in the ODI match to 10 teams. Read on and select fantasy cricket team at 11wickets App for Android/iOS only.
