We know how it feels when your favourite sports team is constantly losing. It is just not funny and is extremely frustrating. Sitting there yelling at the television, saying that everyone on the team should be fired, is an ordinary incidence for the sports fans. Every sports fan out there thinks that they can run a team better than the management in place now. Well, actually, now you can run your own fantasy sports team.
In the middle of 2000s fantasy sports India was created and every sports fan dream came true. Fans were now able to select players from cricket, football, basketball, kabaddi and many other sports. Fans are now able to run a team however they wish. They could set line-ups, drop players, pick up new ones and execute trades.
But which fantasy sport is the top of the bunch?
In India, the most popular fantasy sport is cricket. Fantasy cricket is by far the easiest one to play though Indians are also a huge fan of fantasy football league as well.
For playing the daily fantasy cricket games, all you need to do is selecting the playing XI and your fantasy team is set. For most of us, fantasy cricket is the best, as cricket is religion in this nation. You can have the most dominant team online, and your opponent can be defeated with the points earned. Trust us; you will live it down either, especially if you’re in a league with your close friends, or people at work.
The next popular fantasy sport after fantasy cricket is fantasy football.
Fantasy football takes a lot more of your time, especially if you are in a league where you need to set your playing XI daily.
Instead of one game, a weekend, and a winner you have daily (almost every day). Now, in case your team has a slow start, they can make up for it later in the week. The roster in fantasy football is a lot deeper, and there are a lot more spots to fill on your team. Managers really need to know all of the players and the potential breakouts who could help their team.
Well then, who is the fantasy sports winner?
For the busy, casual sports fan we would say online fantasy cricket can be your primary choice. Don’t get us wrong, fantasy football is pretty intense because every game matters and that one loses can hurt your season.
We think that the best fantasy sport has to go to both cricket and football. Obviously, if you are only a cricket fan or only a football fan, and not both, then you have your own personal winner.
So next time your yelling at your computer screen or phone, and your fantasy team is losing, the only one you can blame is, yourself.
Thanks for reading! Play fantasy sports and enjoy!
