Legends Been Mirrored In These 8 Youngster

These days, cricket doesn’t need any particular season to soar high. IPL season, ICC World Cup, T20 World Cup, any international test series or ODI series. Whatever it is, cricket fans are always high in spirit to take part in watching these matches and cheering for their favorite team. What’s more? Taking part in fantasy cricket games is also the part of cricket fever for the fans! 

Lately, in the cricket league, new talents are spreading fires across the field. Many of these new talents make us remember the legendary cricketers, who were incomparable. The new talents in cricket are making headlines as they are bringing back the treasured memories of the incomparable cricket legends. Let us count a few of these new talents today: 

Rashid Khan Reminding of Shahid Afridi 

Khan, the leg-spinner of Afghanistan Cricket Team has taken the world by storm since his terrific performance in IPL 2018. Rashid possesses the ability to put batsmen under pressure by bowling quickly through the air, similar to his bowling idol Shahid Afridi, whilst maintaining a precise stump-to-stump line. His major asset is his deadly googly has frequently left batsmen confused, and thus, is famed as one of the best-limited overs bowlers of this generation. 

Rashid’s charm has turned him into a crowd favorite and also has been the top player in fantasy cricket league. Having conquered in the franchise tournaments and the associates’ sports, with Afghanistan’s endorsement to Full Membership and entry into Test cricket, now is the time for Rashid to truly assert his supremacy in all formats. 

Prithvi Shaw Reminding of Sachin Tendulkar 

The 18 years opening batsmen, Prithvi Shaw is the man of the moment. Having impressed with the bat and captaincy during the of late concluded ICC Under 19 World Cup, followed by a remarkable string of performances during the IPL, Prithvi Shaw has hogged the spotlight. With a stunning domestic season for Mumbai, numerous have compared his extraordinary talent with that of Sachin Tendulkar, who also burst onto the scene awfully early in his career. Just like young Sachin, Prithvi has the inclination to take the attack to the opposition. 

Having replicated his game to that of Sachin’s, Prithvi plays the ball late and is fairly punchy in his stroke play. His outstanding base allows him to play all the shots in the book scoring all around the park. Even though somewhat vulnerable in defense, with a little fine tuning, Prithvi has wonderful potential to be an all-time great.

Quinton de Kock Reminding of Adam Gilchrist 

Gilchrist retired in 2008, his record of 5570 runs including 17 hundred at an average of 47.60 is evidence to a man who redefined the position of the wicketkeeper in the new era. He’s been hailed as the peak wicket keeping batsmen cricket world has ever seen. Since then, almost every nation has tried to find their Gilchrist, with Quinton de Kock most likely being the closest of that dream. A few of the feats he’s attained at such a young age are deep, and there’s no shocker he’s already being assumed a future great. 

Having become a vital part of the South African team across all formats with the bat, Quinton de Kock is evenly good with the gloves in hand. His flawlessly quick hands and intense levels of fitness, has seen him achieve stunners now and then, creating a chance out of nothing. 

Abhishek Sharma Reminding of Yuvraj Singh 

The 17-year-old fearless all-rounder, Abhishek Sharma made his IPL 2018 debut for the Delhi Daredevils playing against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, as his cool orthodox cricketing shots stole the attention. Idolizing Yuvraj Singh, Abhishek’s game is almost the same as Yuvraj’s. Alike to Yuvraj, he can be graceful and brutal at the same time. His casual swing of the bat is an enticing sight to watch. Contrary to his physique, Abhishek Sharma can hit the ball a long way. 

Likewise, Abhishek is brilliant with the ball as well. His canny left-arm spin has resulted in numerous economical spells and has a particular ability to take key wickets when necessary. His fitness on the field again has similarity to that of a much younger, livelier Yuvraj. 

Haseeb Hameed Reminding of Rahul Dravid 

Haseeb Hameed was one of the few bright sparks and appeared destined to have an ideal career in the future having made his Test debut at the age of 19 against India in 2016. Hameed was aptly stated as one of the outstanding young batsmen for England cricket team, as his debut hinted he could be the opening partner for Alastair Cook that England had sought from the retirement of Andrew Strauss. 

His batting skill drew the contrast to Rahul Dravid as he’s nicknamed ‘The Wall’ back in England. His disciplined and composed style which identifies him as a bit of a throwback, wears bowlers down, as he grinds every run. This technique enables batsmen lower down to convey themselves and play around him. 

Rishabh Pant Reminding of Brendon McCullum 

Aggressive, brutal and bright to watch, Rishabh Pant can bruise bowling attacks just like few other men in international cricket. Close to Brendon, Rishabh has been used all through the Indian line up. But when he arrives at the crease it’s not possible to look away. He might have played a few outstanding knocks in the past. Yet, in IPL 2018 Pant took his game to the next level. 

Having been regarded as the Emerging Player of IPL 2018. Pant established his talent by derisively crushing the ball to all corners of the grounds. Next, to his power hitting, he’s got the skill to play all kinds of scoops, discovering his own this season. If he were to carry on this brilliant form, no doubt, like Brendon, he’ll slowly earn the status of being one of the most vicious batsmen of this age. 

Kagiso Rabada Reminding of Dale Steyn 

Tremendous pace, the aptitude to swing the ball both ways, and precision have perhaps made Steyn the nation’s best ever. At his prime, Steyn had a scorching run – up, accompanied by a killer out-swinger. He was approximately unplayable at times. Also, a well-built, real quick like Rabada is debatably one of South Africa’s best talents off late. At a mere age of 20, he proclaimed himself to the world stage starting himself as the leader of the South African pace attack. 

Now number one in the world Test rankings, he’s been active for South Africa across all formats. He also has a sound method with the bat and looks comfortable most of the times, in spite of the conditions.  That is extremely scary potential for the opponent team! 

Shubman Gill Reminding of Virat Kohli 

A few might believe the publicity for Prithvi Shaw is widespread; Shubman Gill’s most likely more! Player of the tournament in the ICC U-19 World Cup, Gill has a fondness for big runs. His average of 124 at a strike rate of 112.38 is evidence of what an astonishing tournament he had. He carried on his remarkable form for the Kolkata Knight Riders at IPL 2018, playing crucial innings now and then. 

There is an eerie resemblance in the way Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli play their shots. Making Virat his idol, it has been noticed by the experts that their shots at times look nearly the same. Whether it is a short arm jab over midwicket or an authoritative cover drive, the similarity is strange. By the looks of it, Gill is meant for a great future. And a possible future captain for the National cricket team.

Top Fielders in the World Right Now

This is the era of limited over cricket, fantasy cricket online. Along with the batsmen and bowlers, cricket fielding plays a crucial role in this sport. 

The reason for that is simple. Runs saved on the field make a difference in closely contested games. And as teams can’t afford to leave runs on the field. Hence, the surfacing of top-class fielders across cricket teams has been a natural outcome. And these days almost all teams have a few fielders who are quite bright. 

In fantasy cricket games as well, users can earn good points based on the performances of the fielders. So let us take a look at the 4 fielders having great fielding talents. 

David Warner

This Australian cricketer’s fielding is very much similar to his batting. Speed, strength and the eye for break describe him as a fielder. Warner is truly a fielding all-rounder, who can be evenly successful at almost any arrangement of fielding. 

When he fields in the deeper positions, his aptitude to cover ground like a rugby player makes him one of the best boundary rounding fielders in the globe. Batsman has to place it actually well if he has to score a four in Warner’s area. 

Besides that, he is an incredibly safe catcher. Even though he is very sporty, he is not known for taking acrobatic catches. Warner also has a very strong arm. He sends in fast precise throws from the deep that rules out the option of batsmen stealing runs due to poor throws. Warner’s prowess as a fielder in the circle is evenly effective. But it is in the deeper areas where he really comes alive. 

Ben Stokes 

Over the past few years, England’s all-round motivation Ben Stokes has turned into one of the best cricketers in the world and because of his eye-catching all-round exploits, his position as one of the world’s best fielders perhaps goes unnoticed. 

One thing that requires to be remembered about Stokes is that he is an extremely gifted athlete and he brings those raw reflexes when he fields. Like the best fielders, he has no deficit as a fielder and can field at most positions. 

A trait that truly tells us that he is one of the top fielders is his willingness to try the extreme and he pulls it off frequently. Stokes’ sturdy arm, the swiftness of covering ground across the field and a perfect catching method makes him one of the best fielders across the globe now. 

Ravindra Jadeja 

When Indian cricketer, Ravindra Jadeja initially began playing cricket in Jamnagar, his coach had first sharpened his skills as a fielder prior to anything else, and that evidently is demonstrated on the field and when points are earned in fantasy cricket for his performances. 

Jadeja is one of the safest catchers across the globe at the moment; he has pulled off loads of terrific catches at a variety of positions. Added to that, he is one of those rare fielders who can hit the stumps and that makes him particularly risky for batsmen, who may try to steal a single or two. 

Lastly, Jadeja’s throws from the deep are roughly always precise and batsmen always think twice prior to taking liberties when he fields at that position. In all the three formats of cricket, Jadeja has emerged as one of the best fielders in the world.

Kieron Pollard 

West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard has an exclusive signature move that no other fielder across the globe has been capable to master and most likely they never will. 

Batsmen often hit flawlessly fine shots that seem to be going over the boundary but then if it is Pollard’s zone then he leaps up and plucks it out of thin air, one handed. The batsmen are frequently made to look foolish. 

Pollard’s 6 feet 4 inches frame and large hands make it possible for him to be winning at this, which is why no other fielder has been capable of mastering it. The timing of the leap is also supreme and Pollard has turned it into an art form. 

But, other than this special aspect of his fielding, he covers a lot of ground rapidly with his enormous strides even though he is not the fastest mover and sends in rocket throws from the deep with the smallest amount of fuss. He is a misleadingly brilliant fielder and is, undoubtedly, among the best fielders across the globe at this moment.

Play Fantasy Cricket Following these Strategies

In today’s world, aside from watching cricket, we play fantasy cricket on different fantasy websites to double the fun. Majority of us choose the players involved randomly. But have you ever pondered what could be done before choosing the players for better results? If you haven’t, don’t worry as we will take you through few steps by which you can win big in fantasy games.  

Well, since fantasy cricket is a skill-based game, one needs to have a certain amount of skill to win. 

A fantasy team can be best created by the player who has done his homework well. This means that he has studied the pitch, the weather conditions, form of the players and past performance of the player against the team he is up against. 

First of all you should prefer those fantasy websites who give you the opportunity of playing the game on a daily basis rather than a combined team for the tournaments. 

Pitch:

One needs to study the pitch warily before choosing a player for the fantasy league team. Pitches can differ from flat batting tracks to bowler/spinner friendly wickets. 

Pitch Performance:

Aside from the nature of the pitch, observing how the pitch has behaved in recent matches plays a critical part. This will give you a lucid idea on what kind of players to pick for your team. 

Player Performance:

Picking a player purely on status is a prime sin on Fantasy Cricket as it might just go wrong. One has to judge his current form and how steadily he is performing in recent games. Yes, they might just get back in form on time and perform very well but taking them in the fantasy league will be unfair to the one who has been without fail performing well in recent games 

Don’t let your heart take over your mind:

All of us have a preferred team or a favourite player close to our heart. We always hope for that team to win or for that player to perform very well. But on fantasy cricket, you should not let your heart rule over your mind. It might occur that your team isn’t performing very well or your player is out of form. Here you have to make a choice of excluding players from your preferred team or your beloved player as they will just be an extra in your fantasy team and will end up making you look silly amongst your group of friends.

Keen eye for Talent:

Gamers always select the big name players and truly so as they are the ones who, majority of the time, gives the highest number of points for their performances. But these players have a huge price tag and you are often left with very less/negligible credits in your account to form your team. Hence, it is very vital to have a balance of the big name players and upcoming talent in your team as you will always find a few unfamiliar player rising up to the occasion. 

Select top order batsmen:

Yes, you heard it right! Top order batsmen normally are the ones who play the maximum number of overs, in case of T20 cricket game. If they are in performance, they are guaranteed to give you maximum number of points and help you in your team score. 

All-Rounders are key:

All-rounders play a very vital role in the team as they help in balancing out the side. With the aptitude to both bat and ball, they are usually the first names on the team. They offer a balance to the team and can help with points with their ability to clear the boundary line and take wickets. 

Pick your Captain/Vice Captain cleverly:

This is an unspoken rule. Always opt the player who is in a good form as your captain/vice captain as they usually give you additional points. It is wise to have an all-rounder as your captain/vice-captain as they are the ones who will execute both with the bat and the ball, thus giving you most points in the game to the team.
