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.

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

They went from 1980 – 1995 without losing a series. 

The Early Years and the Rise to domination 

Cricket in many places around the world was introduced to the local population by the ruling British. So was the case with the British colonies of the West Indies Federation. It was a collection of various British ruled islands such as Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia, among others and British Guyana. Early matches involved touring British teams and the local sides. West Indies became the 4th test playing nation in 1928. 

George Headley, the non-white West Indian player emerged as the best player of the team, when it was led by a white player. The locals took instant notice to Headley, who was called the Black Bradman. With time, there was rise of three WsEverton Weekes, Clyde Walcott and Frank Warrel along with the spin kings Sonny Ramadhin and Alf Valentine. These players began winning the test matches with their brilliant performances. The team were winning against all oppositions and in all countries. 

During this time pressure for appointing non-white captain was growing and finally, in 1960, Frank Worrell was appointed as the first black captain of West Indies cricket team.  

World Cup Participation and more 

The team participated in the World Cup 1975 and became the world champion. During this period, also emerged fast bowlers like Michael Holding followed Joel Garner, Colin Croft and Malcolm Marshall soon after. With these men, West Indies had a fast bowling line up, never seen before and with Richards and Greenidge adding to the batting power.  

The nation again won the world cup tournament of 1979 defeating England and re3ached the finals of WC 1983. Although it lost to India in 1983, its peak season came in 1984, when West Indies team defeated England in a test series. In a 5 match test series, West Indies cricket team whitewashed EnglandLloyd retired in 1985, Richards succeeded him and the team continued in its winning ways. Garner and Holding retired in 87, but able replacements were found in Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh and Ian Bishop and in the batting department, Richie Richardson cemented his place in the side.

Tip #1: Use the app that lets team customization after the toss 

Most daily fantasy cricket apps close the contest entries One hour before the official match beginning time. Which means you cannot be absolutely sure about the playing XI of both the teams. As the toss is usually done only Half an hour before start time, you may have more possibilities to predict the best players. So, try 11Wickets app that enables you to modify your team prior to the match starts.

To win cash easily and with more probabilities, try joining small contests with 10 or 20 members. It really is easier to beat 9 other members in comparison with 9,999 other members. Check if the contest is a confirmed contest, as well. Therefore the contest will run even if it is not full. 

Tip #3: Be familiar with the points system 

Every online fantasy cricket app has distinct points structure. A lot of them give more points to Batting such as runs, the fifties etc., a few give more value to bowling.

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.
