One of the factors in selecting a dream team in online fantasy cricket is the pitch condition. During the 1980s and 1990s, Sharjah was the regular stadium to arrange international cricket matches. It was the period when Sharjah stadium roared into life with all the international team playing matches there.
After 2001, the stadium’s influence declined because of the controversies. And because BCCI decided not to let Indian team play in the ground for their rivalry with Pakistan. Now, again fantasy cricket league teams are heading to that ground and matches are being held. Soon Sharjah is going to regain its declined glory.
Let’s talk about the records created at this ground. Take a look at the highest totals at Sharjah Cricket Stadium and keep playing daily fantasy cricket games at 11Wickets App.
