8 killer T20 match-winning strategy
So, here are some crucial points that help you chart out a perfect winning streak for your team.
You do not play the game for the sake of playing. You play to nail it. To win it, you need top players in the team, a killer strategy, training, game trackers, etc. With the T20 season continuing, you must have thought about all these to win big money from the fantasy cricket site.
1.Read the rules & regulations of your fantasy league.
You play according to the rule of the game. Knowing the rules help you commit not error or erroneous decisions. Learn the specifics of the fantasy cricket site, like your budget, how many player combinations it allows, the number of batters, bowlers, wicket-keepers, etc. Also, check the rule regarding substitutes, how many replacement players, and when you can pick them.
2.Focus on the top 3 batters from the playing 11 from each team.
The top batters get to play the maximum number of balls. They put more runs on the board. Hence, you earn more fantasy points as they make runs.
3.Wicket-keeper who bats at the top order
You can go for the wicket-keepers batting at the top, like Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson, Punjab’s Parthiv Patel, etc. You can also pick more than one wicket-keeper, like Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik, but they are often used as pinch hitters, sent down the order in the death overs, and may not get enough balls to score big runs. They can contribute to multiple departments. Besides batting, they are good at run-outs, catches, stumping, etc.
4.All-rounders in your team
Include the top all-rounders who bat in the top six and bowl at least two overs. They will score points in batting, bowling, catches, and run-outs, like Mumbai’s Hardik Pandya or Kolkata’s Andre Russell. Include the all-rounder who bats in the top 3 slots, like Sunil Naraine.
5.Add Big Hitters to the team.
Like Chris Gayle, Rishabh Pant, Kieron Pollard, Maxwell. They will get you additional points for the number of boundaries they hit. Their 30 runs with boundaries will fetch more points than no-boundary 30 runs.
6.Consider death over specialist bowlers.
Add bowlers who specialize in power-play bowling overs. These bowlers can pick wickets quickly, like Jofra Archer and Jasprit Bumrah.
7.Keep spinners on the team.
Spinners will take their share of wickets, especially the wrist spinners. Sometimes, the spin works more lethal than a pace attack on a day, condition, pitch, or opponent’s batting lineup.
8.Include recent in-form players.
Look at the recent forms of the players. A track record is essential, but an in-form player is critical for your team. Big names sound big but may not be in the best shape in the present. For example, Yuvraj Singh is a great player in this format but may not be in great touch. In the T20 format, those who start with a bang perform throughout the tournament.
In conclusion, focus on the strategy to boss the tournament. Planning is the key to hitting the money you aim for in fantasy cricket games. Also, pay heed to the match and field conditions, the last-minute playing 11, weather, etc. We will discuss that in our next.
