Fantasy Cricket Trivia – A Day of Two English Test Hat-tricks

It was Dominic Cork and Stuart Broad who on 30th July took a Test hat-trick against West Indies and India during 1995 and 2011 in two separate matches. And for the joy of fantasy cricket fans playing at 11wickets app, in both cases, England won the Test.

At times, some dates become famous for some super talented players. In our today’s online fantasy cricket post we will go down memory lane and talk about one such memorable date in cricket history.

30th July is famous for two Test hat-tricks by English famous fantasy cricket league bowlers. The first one came at Old Trafford in 1995 and the second one came 16 years later at Trent Bridge. And both helped England to win the respective matches comfortably and also win the heart of daily fantasy cricket games.

Dominic Cork’s Test Hat-Trick against West Indies

In 1995 it was Dominic Cork who was the hero for England against West Indies. West Indies only scored 216 in their first innings with only Brian Lara making any significant contribution. England got a lead of 221 runs thanks to 94 from Graham Thorpe and unbeaten 56 from Cork, his maiden Test fifty. West Indies started well and on 161/3 with Lara and captain Richie Richardson on the crease looked set to challenge England but Cork was in the middle of a good spell and got Richardson bowled. He followed it up with two more straight deliveries and got Junior Murray and Carl Hooper LBW in the next two balls. The hat-trick was completed and West Indies were suddenly 161/6.

Lara tried single-handedly and scored a brilliant 145 out of the team total of 314 but a target of 94 runs was never challenging and England got to the target with six wickets in hand.

Stuart Broad’s Test Hat-Trick against India

In 2011, it was the Indians against whom Stuart Broad took his hat-trick. Just a few months back India became the World Champion and they also had the number one ranking in the Test. They lost the first Test at Lord’s and while coming to Trent Bridge, key players like Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir were ruled out due to injury. Still, India started well and at one stage England were 124/8 in the first innings. Then a mighty 64 from Stuart Broad took England to 221.

India batted and reached 267/4, thanks to Rahul Dravid’s 34th Test hundred and fifties from VVS Laxman and Yuvraj Singh. But Broad got Yuvraj with the score on 267 as India’s fifth wicket. Soon with the score on 273, Broad got the dangerous MS Dhoni caught by Anderson in the second slip. Harbhajan Singh was LBW on the next ball and Broad completed his hat-trick as Praveen Kumar was clean bowled next day. With this both Broad and Harbhajan joined Shane Warne, Darren Gough, and Nuwan Zoysa to become players who have taken hat-trick and also became part of hat-trick in Test cricket.

From then on it was England’s Test match. India folded for 288 with a lead of just 67. England posted 544 in the second innings thanks to an Ian Bell classic among some controversies and India could score only 158 runs in the fourth innings and lost the Test match by 319 runs.

Fantasy Cricket – Lesser Known Facts of Cricket

Cricket has been an integral part of human emotions. Today, the internet-based cricket games offered by 11wickets.com, the best platform for these games, are trending a lot amongst the cricket lovers. Daily fantasy cricket games are a rage and the mode of entertainment for cricket fans around the world.

Today let’s talk about the lesser-known facts about the cricket and then focus on the forming the fantasy cricket playing XI team.

There are ten ways a batsman can get out in cricket: Bowled, Caught, Run Out and Leg before Wicket. Handling the ball, Stumped, Hit the ball twice, Obstructing the field, Timed out and Hit Wicket.

First laws of cricket were written in 1774

In ancient cricket, the batsman would bat in front of a tree stump, hence the term “stumps”. As the game developed it was at times played in front of a wicket-gate – which led to the term “wickets”.

Early bowlers would bowl the ball under arm and cricket records tell tales of great under arm lob bowlers. Over arm bowling was at first illegal. It was introduced to cricket by a Kent cricketer, John Willes. He, in fact, got this move from his sister, Christina who found her skirts were getting in the way when she tried to bowl under-arm!

The first international cricket match was held between the US and Canada in 1844. This epic event and match were played in New York and Canada won by 23 runs.

In 1868 an Englishman called Charles Lawrence based in Australia create a team of aborigines and took them to England. This was the first Australian tour to England, and each player wore a cap of a dissimilar colour so that the spectators could spot them. The team played 47 matches against a number of local teams of which they won 14, lost 14 and drew the rest. Despite playing cricket the aborigines showcased a number of sole sports including the backwards race, cricket ball dodging and boomerang throwing.

While he merely played 12 tests with limited success, Alfred ‘Tich’ Freeman is perhaps the greatest first-class bowler ever. A short leg-spin googly bowler, he took 3,776 first-class wickets, second only to Wilfred Rhodes and is the lone bowler to take 300 wickets in 1928 during a single season. He took over 200 wickets in the next seven seasons and remains the only man to take all 10 wickets in an innings thrice and 17 wickets in a match twice.

The greatest all-rounder

One of the greatest all-rounders in the true sense is CB Fry. He captained England at cricket; played for England in football he equalled the world long-jump record. Away from the sport he was presented the Kingship of Albania, he embodied India at the League of Nations, and Hitler consulted with him when he was budding the Youth Program in Germany.

Sir Donald George Bradman has to surely be the greatest batsman of all time. In his last test innings at the Oval in 1948 he needed 4 runs to end with an average of 100. He was bowled by Eric Hollies for a duck. His test average of 99.94 and the first-class average of 95.14 are both world records. His 974 runs in a single test series is also a record. He scored two triple centuries and 12 double centuries in test cricket and was previously left stranded on 299.

Montague Druitt was a fast bowler who played for Winchester College, Incogniti and Dorset, he was a playing member of the MCC as well. In 1888 he drowned himself in the Thames River. Druitt was alleged of being Jack the Ripper!

Fantasy Cricket Record: History of One Day cricket

ODI is a popular format when playing online fantasy cricket games! The limited over’s cricket, also renowned as one-day cricket. And in a little different context as List A cricket; is a edition of the sport of cricket in which a game is generally completed in one day. While Test and first-class matches can last up to five days to complete.

The name reflects the rule that in the daily fantasy cricket match each team bowls a set highest number of over’s. As a rule between 20 and 50, even though shorter and longer forms of maximum over’s cricket have been played.

Read on the amazing back story of this limited over game and start making your team at 11wickets.com to play at the best fantasy cricket platform.

A history to remember

A one day match is named so because each match is planned for finishing point in a single day. One day cricket entertainment has evolved from its first phase around the era of World Series cricket of the 1970s. And it is now the mainly watched and most exhilarating form of the game. In the late 1970s, Kerry Packer recognized the contender World Series Cricket (WSC) contest. The worldwide one-day game is a twentieth-century development. The first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

A One Day International (ODI) is a form of Limited over’s cricket, in which a rigid number of over’s, as a rule 50, but in the past 40, 45 or 60 over’s, are played involving two teams with international grade. The Cricket World Cup is played in this configuration. One Day International games are also called “Limited Overs Internationals (LOI)”, because they are limited overs cricket matches among national sides, and if the weather mess about they are not always completed in one day.

Significant one-day matches, international and domestic, frequently have two days set away. The second day being a “reserve” day to allow more chance of the game being concluded. If a result is not achievable on first day (for illustration if play is not permitted or broken up by rain).

Numerous of the aspects of One Day International cricket that are now routine. With coloured uniforms, contests played at hours of darkness under floodlights with a white ball and gloomy sight screens. And, for small screen broadcasts, various camera angles, special effect microphones to arrest sounds from the players on the arena, and on-screen graphics. Teams currently play 50 over’s each.

Rules

In One day International’s, each squad find to bat only a rigid number of over’s. In the early years of ODI cricket, the figure of overs was in general 60 overs per side but nowadays it has been consistently set at 50 overs.

Basically affirmed the game works as follows:

A One Day International is challenged by 2 teams of 11 players each.

The skipper of the squad winning the toss opts to either bat or bowl first.

The side batting first place the target score in a single innings. The innings end until the batting is “all out” (i.e., 10 of the 11 batting troupe are “out”) or all of the first side’s selected overs are spent.

Every bowler is confined to bowl a maximum of 10 overs. It is less in the case of rain-decreased matches. And in any occurrence in general no more than one fifth or 20% of the total overs per innings.

The side batting second strives to score further than the target score in order to win the match. In the same way, the side bowling second tries to bowl out the second team for not as much of as the target score in order to win.

A tie

If the amounts of runs scored by both teams are equal as soon as the second team misplace all of its wickets or drain all its overs, then the match is declared as a ‘tie’ (despite of the number of wickets gone by either team).

Wherever a number of overs are gone astray, for instance, due to rough weather environment, then the number of overs may be condensed. Where the number of overs obtainable for the side batting second is of necessity different from the number of overs faced by the squad that batted first, the result may be firmed by the Duckworth Lewis Method.

The floodlights would be placed in such a move that it would not hinder with fielding side and captains would be permitted a cloth on meadow must the ball become wet.

Fantasy Cricket: Greatest Test Cricket Bowlers of All-Time

A warm hello to all the ardent cricket lover and fantasy cricket league gamers of 11wickets.com! The debate about who are the greatest Test bowlers of all time can be endless. That is because greatness does not decide by pure statistics only. The truth is, great bowlers require to exhibit potential dominating over great batting line-ups in all conditions.

They need to put up steady performances over a long time. And have that x-factor that terrifies batsmen every single time he bowls and his potential to increase your online fantasy cricket scoreboard for you.

Hence, there is a pool of players who deserve among the best. One can debate which one is better than the other but very few can claim against their place in greatness. Let’s now look at the greatest Test bowlers of all time and play daily fantasy cricket.

Richard Hadlee

Hadlee is synonymous with New Zealand’s rise as an ambitious cricket nation. Although his early years were fairly unremarkable, his single-handed exploits in taking out solid batting line-ups of top teams helped set up his credentials as a one man-wrecker.

Amazingly, he was dominating over opponents irrespective of being part of a pretty unimpressive bowling line-up. His amazing performance against Australia in consecutive home and away series wins is one such focus on that continues to be etched in all New Zealand fan’s mind.

His 9 for 52 remains to be the best bowling figures on Australian soil. He led that performance by adding six more wickets in the second innings. It’s not a much to suggest that Australia has never been reeled just like Hadlee shook them on home soil.

Additionally, Hadlee made an even less likely win against India in India in the Mumbai Test. Hadlee was the first bowler to go beyond the 400 wickets mark in cricket history. His career average of over 22 is proof of this great fast bowler’s successes.

Muttiah Muralitharan

Muralitharan beat all the odds and emerged as the greatest spin bowler of all time. In an eventful eighteen years cricket career, his story is one of strength. His prominence over opposing batsmen was almost enchanting. The truth is, his exploits were so amazing that a threatened section of the cricket world began tossing questions about the legitimacy of his bowling.

People taunted and harassed him by detractors for being a “chucker.” Yet, nothing broke this amazing bowler’s resolve. His 800 career Test wickets at an average of 22.7 continue to be a record even today.

Glen McGrath

Glen McGrath was simply a medium-fast bowler whose bowling speed clocked around the 135 kph tag. He was the height of discipline. His potential to find a vulnerability in the rival batsman’s mental prowess and then to methodically exploit that drawback with his exact bowling was what he was renowned for. McGrath proved that the most successful bowler is one that has the ability to persistently bowl the right length and line in any state.

McGrath’s approach almost always included bowling just out of the off-stump in the corridor of uncertainness. His cricket career record of 563 wickets at an average of just over 21 is even more amazing when you look that he was just a medium-fast bowler with no other techniques except precision and swing. Glen McGrath’s knack for picking out wickets and harassing batsmen renowned.

Wasim Akram

Akram was an expert of both conventional and reverse swing. All-time greats such as Tendulkar, Laxman, and Gooch are among Akram’s biggest fans and are on record proclaiming him as the toughest bowler they faced. Akram’s average in the sub-continent is better than his entire cricket career average. In a cricket career of over 19 years, Akram has picked up 414 wickets at an average of 23.6.

Besides Waqar Yunus, Akram formed the most deadly opening bowling combos. His ability to make use of the conditions both with the new and old ball made him so unique. To emerge as the best bowler from a nation that has produced greats such as Imran Khan, Shoaib Akhtar and Waqar Yunus speaks volumes of Akram’s adventures with the ball. There is no question about the greatness of this leftie.

Malcolm Marshall

People regarded Marshall to bowl ferociously and his bouncers were unbelievable. As part of the famous West Indies quartet consisting of Andy Roberts, Joel Garner, and Michael Holding, Marshall was the quickest and most effective. He was the only fast bowler who crashed Sunil Gavaskar as well.

His outstanding Test bowling average of 20.94 is the best of anyone who’s taken more than 200 wickets. He could be remembered for any number of performances but what he shines for is his on the whole dominance, over opposing batsmen, that he maintained during his playing career.
