Fantasy Cricket – 5 Funny Cases of Hit Wicket

Hit wicket was a rare form of dismissal in cricket during its early days, especially in the one day international. Nowadays, the fantasy cricket fans of 11wickets App have seen a rise in this form of dismissals.  

In hit wicket, a batsman unintentionally dislodges the bails. This is possibly the most awkward way to end an innings in a fantasy cricket game for a batsman.  

If a daily fantasy cricket batsman dislodges the stumps with his body part or bat while taking a run or hitting a shot, the umpire declares it as an out.   

Let us take a look at top 5 unbelievable hit wickets in fantasy games cricket history. 

Imam Ul Haq against Bangladesh 

The event was Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Pakistan’s Imam Ul Haq was playing against The Tigers. Haq scored a century and then was immediately dismissed in a funny way. Two balls later and still on 100, he accidentally hit his own wicket and dismissed at Lord’s. 

Martin Guptill against South Africa 

This is another instance of hit wicket in WC 2019. The Kiwi cricketer, Martin Guptill was playing against South Africa and chasing runs when he hit wicket and went on to get dismissed in a funny manner. The right-handed batsmen proved that the zing bails do work when he got out after dislodging his own wicket with a 360 degree turn into a hook shot. He slipped while trying to take off for a single and dislodged the bails. 

Roy Fredericks against Australia 

This is one of the very first instances of hit wicket. The first instance of hit-wicket took place in the final of the 1975 World Cup in England. West Indian opener Roy Fredericks was the batsman who got hit wicket playing against Australia. The left-hand batsman lost his balance while playing a shot and one of his legs, in the quest of holding on to the ground, touched the stumps and unsettled the bails. 

Franklyn Dennis against England 

Franklyn Anthony Dennis was a former cricketer who played for Canada. He played three One Day Internationals matches. In a match, against England at Old Trafford, he scored meagre 21 out of the team’s total of 45 all out. He was the second player after Roy Fredericks to be dismissed hit wicket. 

Maurice Odumbe against West Indies 

Maurice Odumbe was a former Kenyan cricketer and a former ODI captain for Kenya. Till 2015, he was the world’s only player who was dismissed hit wicket twice in a career.

Fantasy Cricket – Uncover Women’s Cricket History

Cricket is the second most popular sport played in the world! Nowadays people are not only watching the sport, they are also playing actively online fantasy cricket games at 11Wickets App. 

The daily fantasy cricket game has worldwide popularity and is quickly growing in the nations where it was not played before 

Cricket is also a popular sport with the female population, both as a player and a spectator. In our today’s post, we would like to discuss the history of women playing cricket and also online fantasy cricket. 

One of the oldest sport for women 

Cricket is one of the oldest sports in history. In fact, there is a report of a women’s match played as early as 1745 in England. There is not much information of women’s cricket reported from 1745 until 1887 when the first women’s cricket club was formed in Yorkshire, England. This club was called the White Heather Club. Soon thereafter, in 1894, a women’s club was formed in Australia, South Africa and Canada. 

From 1926 until 1998 the governing body of women’s cricket was the Women’s Cricket Association, also called The Association. They governed cricket among women in England, Scotland and Wales. Their main goal was to encourage more women’s cricket clubs and encourage women to play after they left school. In 1998 the England and Wales Cricket Board took over and are currently the governing body for cricket in those areas. 

First international women’s test cricket match 

In December 1934 the first international women’s test cricket match was played between England and Australia. In 1958, the IWCC (International Women’s Cricket Council was formed to merge all women’s team from around the world. In 2005, IWCC merged with the ICC (International Cricket Council) so that the ICC now the governing body of cricket for women, men and youth. 

There is a Women’s World Cup. This started in 1973, interestingly two years before the first Men’s World Cup. Fifteen countries/teams have played in the Women’s World Cup thus far and there have been eight totals since 1973. Among them are; England, India, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Jamaica, Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago. The United States has yet to play in the Women’s Cricket World Cup. 

Today, cricket is very popular among women in England. England and Australia have the strongest teams. There is an effort to make cricket a more popular sport for the non-playing nations’ women but funding and other metrics have made it hard to move forward with teams. Hopefully, as cricket awareness grows in those nations due to the strong youth effort.

He is Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar is not just a Batsman; he is the perfect batsmen you will ever find. His 100 international centuries remain the best of the best records he has ever created and will be hard to surpass. He has earned worldwide respect for his service and achievements in cricket and is clearly one of the most unforgettable stalwarts that the game has ever produced. 

Rahul Dravid 

Who cannot love this dependable cricketer of Indian team? It is better to put it this way: “Who can hate this Rahul Dravid?” There is nothing that Dravid does will ever put your patience to test except for the long hours he bats on the cricket field. “The Wall” of Indian Cricket, Dravid is famous for helping the team recover from awful situations being the saving grace.

Fantasy Cricket Record Diary – Best Catches in Cricket

warm greeting to all fantasy cricket India fans! Welcome back to yet another post at your favourite fantasy cricket game platform, 11wickets App. 

A popular phrase in the cricket world and among the daily fantasy cricket fans goes like this – “Catches wins matches.”  

A single catch or a single catch drop can turn the head of a match for teams along with online fantasy cricket fans.  

Let us take a look at top 5 catches in the history of cricket including all the formats. 

Suresh Raina 

With the advent of the 21st century, a new era began in Indian Cricket. Sourav Ganguly’s stoic leadership saw many youngsters in the team who not only improved the existing fielding standards but inspired the future generations to become more physically fit. Suresh Raina took the catch of Younis Khan during Asia Cup. He dived back to grab a lightning ball, that was Khan’s shot to get him out at 52. Raina’s catch helped in the slowing of the Pakistan innings towards the end. 

Jonty Rhodes 

Jonty Rhodes took this catch off a Lance Klusner delivery. The shot hit by Robert Croft of England was going high above Jonty’s head. Realising that he could get only a hand to it, Rhodes raised his left hand to somehow deflect the ball and then as the ball fell after his deflection, he caught it. The catch at the time of Rhodes was considered to be the greatest. 

Angelo Mathews 

This is probably Sri Lanka’s best catch ever. The shot hit by David Warner was caught very near the ropes by a jumping Mathews. No sooner did he take the catch, he realised that he would run on the ropes. So, he threw it out, just in the nick of time to make it a legitimate catch instead of a six. The catch provided an entry into the match for Sri Lanka as Australia were going strong at 72 for just 1 wicket and requiring 85 more runs to win at a run rate of 6.5. The catch was taken off Ajantha Mendis’s bowling. 

David Hussey 

David Hussey fielding in the long on jumped to try and grab a ball that was hit by Paul Collingwood of Delhi team during a match of the Indian T20 league. He could not grab it and instead managed to deflect it near him as he jumped right on the edge of the ropes, catching the ball. Realizing his inability to keep himself from going over the ropes, Hussey threw the ball up again. And this time when it started falling down, he dashed from behind the ropes and took the catch with one hand. 

Adam Gilchrist 

This catch brings to the fore the athletics, concentration and presence of mind of Adam Gilchrist. The catch of Marcus Trescothick off a Shane Warne delivery in the 2001 Ashes is the best catch of all. With the scoreboard at 52 for null, Trescothick tried a remodelled sweep, to hit the ball to the cover boundary. Instead, he ended up hitting the heel of the fielder at silly point. The ball went up on the rebound, with the fielder in agony. Gilchrist realized that the ball had gone up and was on its way down near the silly point. He raced from behind the stumps and jumped near the foot of the fielder to collect the ball just in the nick of time.

Fantasy Cricket – Meet Man of the Match from Losing Teams

Numerous times we have encountered the situation when the man of the match ironically ends up on the losing team. Though, this can lead a daily fantasy cricket team to win a contest. No cricketer wishes to be pleased with those moments when his finest cannot result in a win for his team. 

Numerous factors which include failure of his team and the failure of the online fantasy cricket games might have been liable for the defeat. Those players only will have to be happy by winning hearts.  

Here, let’s take a look at the players who not merely won hearts often but even the maximum number of Man of the Match trophies after their team failed to cross the finish line. Include these players in your fantasy cricket team at 11wickets App. 

Javed Miandad – 5 times 

The Pakistani batsmen were indeed reputed for his knock against India with famous one in a tournament final at Sharjah striking the last ball for a maximum leading his team into a win over arch-rivals. 

Miandad was amongst Pakistan’s exceptional, and a reliable batsman. The right-hander won the MOM in an ODI way back in 1982; when he scored 119 off just 77 balls against India at Lahore to aid his team make 252 in just 33 overs on a rain-affected game. 

But, India made 193 in 27 overs when rained ceased play. India was announced winners by 17 runs as Pakistan were at 175 at the same stage. There was no Duckworth-Lewis rule at that time! 

Andy Flower – 5 times 

The Zimbabwean was the star of his nation who inspired his team to some unforgettable wins. But usually found no company for survival struggling with tough opposition bowlers.  

With all the humble record of Zimbabwe, he has won plenty of awards throughout his innings. Very few international teams have good wicket-keeper batsmen and had he played for a top side that could have allowed him to harvest more rewards for his performances. 

Aravinda de Silva – 5 times 

The Sri Lankan cricketer batting at no.3 frequently pulled off something unique for his side. The right hander’s innings of the 105 against Pakistan in the 3rd innings of a Test match at Karachi, 1985 had not been plenty of to aid his team prevent losing the match. 

He scored some very nice hits for the island country. The rest of his team could just manage 108 and was identified for his effort with the Man of the Match. 

Chris Gayle – 6 times 

The West Indies opener reputed for his strong hits is among the few dazzling spots in West Indies cricket following the end of their golden era. The left-hander from Jamaica has frequently given the Caribbean team useful begins only for the middle order to dump it and lastly finish up losing the match. 

One of those MOM awards emerged against India in an ODI match at Motera, Ahemdabad in 2002, when Gayle scored 140 from 127 balls just before India got over the line in a chase of 325 runs. 

Sachin Tendulkar – 9 times 

The man who brought the anticipations of a nation for a, very long time, delivered many amazing innings, but perhaps his best wasn’t ample. 

He was once the lonesome fighter for India when the team was missing top quality players to finish off the match before the strong Indian middle-order went up to height. Even following them, the ‘God of Cricket’ has played out a large number of lonesome hands.

He played from 1990 to 2004. In his 219 matches and 183 innings, he scored 3266 runs. He remained not out in 41 and his highest was 72* with 23.00 average.

Andrew Jones (New Zealand) 

This New Zealand batsman played from 1987 to 1995 and was successful in test matches. But, in ODI, he couldn’t shine in the ODI matches brightly. In his 87 matches and 87 innings, he scored 2784 runs. He remained not out in 9 and his highest was 93 with 35.69 average. He has made 25 half-centuries in his ODI career.
