If you are new to the fantasy cricket world, you will be wondering how a fantasy cricket app works and how to win money through it.
You just need to do 3 things to play fantasy cricket:
- Choose an upcoming match and create a team of 11 best players from both teams
- Deposit money and join some contests using your team
- After the match starts, track your contest leader board and see if your team wins
Use the app that permits team modification after toss
Most daily fantasy cricket platforms close the contest entries 1 hour before the official match start time. So you cannot be sure about the playing XI of both the teams. Because the toss is usually done only 30 minutes before start time, you will have more chances to predict the best players. So try 11Wickets which allows you to modify your team until the match starts. Also, after the toss, you will know which team is going to bat first. So based on this, you will be able to guess the opening players and bowlers and can select the best combination of players.
Join small but confirmed contests
If you are joining a large contest, the chances of reaching Rank 1 and hence winning that big amount is very low. To win money easily and with more chances, try joining small contests with 10 or 20 members. It is easier to beat 9 other members when compared to big number of members. Also check if the contest is a confirmed contest. So the contest will run even when it is not filled.
Understand the points system
Every online fantasy cricket platform/app has different points structure. Some of them give more points to Batting points such as runs, fifties etc., some give more weightage to bowling points such as wickets, maiden over, etc., Some of the apps give a balanced points system between batting, bowling and fielding. Depending on the match and app’s point’s structure, choose appropriate players.
Select your power players wisely
Most apps allow marking two players as Captain and Vice-Captain. If a normal player scores 10 points, the same player if marked as captain, will get 2x points and vice-captain gets 1.5x points. So you have to think a lot before marking a player as captain or vice-captain. Look at the recent performances of these players and make a decision.
Refer & Earn
11Wickets have a referral program. Share your referral link to your friends. As soon as your friends join the app and start playing, you will get free money. This is the best way to earn money without playing.
