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.
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.
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.
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.
Enjoy fantasy sports!
