Fantasy Cricket – Know about Types of Bowling

Hey, cricket fans! Let’s talk about balls and bowlers today. We know that on cricket or even in fantasy cricket, bowling is an action of delivering ball to the opponent team’s batsman. Along with batting, bowling is a major concept in cricket.

When you play fantasy cricket at 11wicket.com, the actions with ball and the bowlers brings loads of points n your scoreboard. Hang around with this post and explore the types of bowling cricket world has.

There are two major categories of ball delivery – fast and spin bowling.

Both categories of bowling is essential in the cricket field. A fast bowler is delivering a ball with more strength and energy. A fast bowler needs to deliver a ball with 130km/h speed or more than it. Fast bowler can bet the batsman by his pace, Yorkers, bouncer.

Again there are two types of pace bowling, fast pace and medium pace bowler. When the average delivery speed of a bowler ranges between 100 km/h to 130 km/, the bowler falls under medium paced. And obviously, fast pace bowler will deliver a ball at a speed of 130km/h or more.

A pace bowler can seam bowling “off cut” and “leg cut”.  A bowler’s middle finger must be at centre of ball and index finger on Non- shining part of the ball. By applying this trick will easily beat batsmen with ‘Off cut’ delivery.

If a bowler have to ball ‘leg cut’ then rub off side part of the ball and your middle finger must be at center of ball and index finger on Non-shining part of the ball. By applying this trick bowlers can ball ‘Leg cut’. There are many fast bowlers, who have more than 140 km/h speed during bowling such as Shoaib Akhtar, Lasith Malinga & Mitchell Starc. There have types of deliveries of fast bowling like-

INSWINGER – Normally ball comes inside for Right hand Batsmen.

OUTSWINGER – It’s like a ball move away from his body part.

SLOWER BALL – A Slower Ball normally delivered to beat the batsman with speed of the ball.

YORKER – A perfect Yorker delivery, arm legs of batsmen and hit the ball powerfully in that specific area.

Swing Bowling

Swing bowling means when the ball moves or rotate towards off side or leg side, known as swing bowling. There are many types of delivery in swing bowling for instance Off spin, Googly, Top spin, Leg break, Off cutter.

Off Spin

Off spin bowling means when a ball goes inside towards batsmen body part for a Right hand batsman.

Googly

When the ball is delivered by off spin bowler, usually he balls a leg spin known as ‘Googly’. Googly delivery helps bowler to beat the batsman by his swing. A Batsman must be focused on bowler’s grip towards his hand to attack him.

Top Spin

When a ball bounces more than its actual delivery. Index finger must be on the seam of ball, thumb and middle finger be on the opposite side of the ball.

Leg Break

Leg break is a swing bowling delivery, which comes in towards the batsmen’s body for left hand batsman and opposite to Right hand batsman goes far from body.

Off Cutter

Off cutter is an off break bowling which swings very quickly than off spin. The reason why it swings more than off spin is the grip, a player’s grip in off cutter bowling changes.

5 Tips to Make Money from Fantasy Cricket App

If you are new to the fantasy cricket world, you will be wondering how 11wickets.com fantasy cricket platform 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. In

 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.

Fantasy Cricket: Boxing Day Test Matches still have Life in it

Nowadays there are many daily fantasy cricket gaming platforms such as 11Wickets by Kolkata based Ability Games, which offer the ardent cricket fans choose their dream team for the almost all cricket tournaments and series.

One of the most important tournaments in the world of cricket and online fantasy cricket at 11wickets.com is the Boxing Day tournament. Yes, we know that you are aware of it. But let’s talk about it for the ones who are taking interest in the world of cricket lately.

Beginning of Boxing Day Test match

Boxing Day Test match is played in Melbourne, Australia between Australia and the cricket team traveling Down Under that summer time.However, it starts on Boxing Day, which is 26th December, and is played on the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). These matches are usually played since 1950.

These games are at their finest when England tours Australia in summer. Boxing Day Test matches between these two teams have experienced great memories and perhaps they are counted in the lists of a few best Boxing Day Tests.

The most important ever Boxing Day match at the MCG was played out between these two teams which captivated 60,486 fans who experienced a thriller. Australia won that game by just 28 runs. Thus that was just a trailer, the approaching years had even more surprises for the cricket crazy nation.

The custom still carries on as the crowd there love sports. They present you with in large numbers on the Boxing Day to enable them to spend some time with friends and family and relax after having a hectic Christmas Day.

Boxing Day Test match of Australians

The Australians would not get to have the Ashes entertainment each year as the series is every four years. And it’s not compulsory that every summer there is a team scheduled to tour Australia. So the Boxing Day is focused very often by the competition between the two states, Victoria and New South-Wales during the Sheffield Shield matches.

Boxing Day Test match of Kiwis

In New Zealand too, yearly Boxing Day Test matches were played between the Black Caps and the touring team for summer. But afterwards, one-day international matches substituted Test matches for the Boxing Day competition and it is played at Basin Reserve, Wellington.

Boxing Day Test match of The Proteas

The South Africans take up the Boxing Day match customarily at the Sahara Stadium, Kingsmead, Durban – each time a National team is touring SA for a summer otherwise they do not have it.

You will find few occurrences which have marked their place in historical past of Boxing Day matches. Who is going to forget Shane Warne’s 700th wicket in the 2nd Test match of 2006-07 Ashes? His bowling victim was England’s Andrew Strauss. Warne retired from International cricket following that series.

Umpire Darrell Hair no-balled the Legendary Muttiah Muralitharan 7 times during the second Test match of 1995 series in Melbourne. As stated by Hair, the bowler twisted his arm and straightens it along the way of delivery which is regarded as an unlawful action in cricket.

Looking at few unforgettable Boxing Day Test matches, we come across that the Aussies have already been on the winner’s team a lot of times.

1995-96 Sri Lanka vs Australia

This match was a good example of Australia’s prominence in the Boxing Day Test matches. The Aussies have scored 500 in the first innings, including Steve Waugh and David Boon’s centuries. The oppositions still did not make even the half the score so they returned to bat for the second innings.

The Sri Lankans bundled for 307, thus setting the Australians having a small target of 41 runs. The Kangaroos won this match by 10 wickets easily.

1998-99 Australia vs England

It was the 4th Test match of 1988/99 Ashes. Poor scoring in a Test match causes it to be nail-biting that was shown in this match. England gave us only 270 runs in the first innings, while the hosts reached the 340 mark prior to getting all out.

The Aussies got a target of 174 in their last innings however they couldn’t deal with even that. They lost their wickets rapidly 7 wickets in about 30 runs. England won just by 12 runs. Dean Headley was the player of the match as he took six wickets in the 4th innings.

2002-03 Australia vs England

The Australians had saved the Ashes that year with 4-1 win over England. They had been annoying their arch rivals since 1989 by winning the series each time. The Boxing Day Test match of 2002 had granted the Australian team a lead of 4-0.

Justin Langer was the Man of the Match for making double century in the 1st innings which worked out for the Aussies to reach 551 additionally Mathew Hayden’s 105.

2008-09 South Africa vs Australia

The match between Australia and South Africa holds the 2nd position behind the Ashes. The Boxing Day Test match was the 2nd Test in 2008-09 series where Africans’ bowling section led by former World No 1 Dale Steyn shook the Australian cricket team batting order.

The Australians was able to make only 394 and 247 in their two innings. South Africans had to make 183 to win and they did it with nine wickets left.

Fantasy Cricket – Top Spinners of All Time

Cricket has evolved to be a fast-paced sport that could convey immediate gratification to its huge followers. Furthermore, the introduction of leading-edge technology in sports has offered possibilities for teams to analyse and catch-up with a few of the strategies and tactics that their opponents use on the cricket field, which also helps the cricket fans who play daily fantasy cricket games.

Spinners play an extremely essential role in cricket and in scoring the points for the ones who play fantasy cricket leagues of various matches at 11Wickets app, the flagship fantasy gaming platform by Ability Games. They often bowl more on a declining track on the last two days of a Test match. Thus, it is usually easily determined that spinners take the most important part in completing matches.

There are primarily two sorts of spinners in the online cricket games of 11wickets app : off-spinners and leg-spinners. Off-spinners generally utilize their fingers to spin a ball while the leg-spinners use their wrists. It is, but, tougher to bowl a leg-spin delivery than an off-spin one. Off-spinners can be better in comprising runs as they generally tend to have more control over their deliveries.

Let’s now check out some the best spinners in history of cricket:

Derek Underwood

Underwood was an English slow left-arm orthodox bowler, meaning that he is accustomed to bowl off-spinners with his left arm. He was probably one of the most excellent spinners in the 1960s and 1970s. And finished up acquiring 297 wickets in 86 Test matches at an average of 25.83. Underwood as well performed in a World Cup for England. But since one-day cricket had not been in fashion those days, he could not have in a lot of it.

Underwood was fairly successful in the sub-continent. However, his bowling was extra suitable for the moist pitches of England. He took the majority of his wickets on his home turf and continued to be one of the powerful weapons for his part for over a decade. Underwood also continues to be the most successful spinner England cricket team had ever.

Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly was an Australian leg-spin bowler and was nicknamed “Tiger” for his crouching, intense bowling. He was the first bowler to have efficiently bowled leg-spin in Test cricket and played in the 1930s and 1940s.

Sir Don Bradman selected him as the best spinner he had come across and if that compliment was not ample, O’Reilly also had taken 144 wickets in just 27 Test matches for Australia. The second World War swindled him of a few valuable years in his major cricket career otherwise his wicket tally might have increased significantly.

Anil Kumble

Anil Kumble is among the most successful bowlers ever with 619 Test wickets. He performed in 132 Test matches and completed with an average of 29.65.

Kumble had not been a major turner of the ball and depended more on his precision and cleverness to get wickets. He was quite hard to work out on Indian tracks and made life unpleasant for a lot of a touring batsman with his googlies and slow yorkers. He was as well hard to score off and accustomed to bowl hardly any loose balls.

Kumble also played in 3 World Cups for India and was really the top wicket-taker in the 1996 World Cup. He took 337 wickets in 271 ODI matches for India. Kumble as well took 1136 wickets in his outstanding career. His international cricket career continued almost 18 years and he also had the privilege to be Indian team captain.

Muttiah Muralidharan

Muralitharan ought to be amongst cricket’s most controversial and skilled personas. His record of acquiring 800 wickets in 133 Test matches and 534 wickets in 350 ODIs is impossible to be exceeded ever.

“Murali”, as he was widely referred to as was a Sri Lankan off-spinner, however mainly used his wrists to turn the ball. He had outstanding power on line and length besides the fact that he was capable of generating an enormous turn.

Shane Warne

Not much ought to be said of a man who nearly single-handedly changed cricket by rewarding the ability of leg-spin bowling. One of the most charming players to have played the sport, he continues to be one of the best match winners of all-time. He was really an invaluable cricketer for his team.

Warne featured in 145 Test matches for Australia and took 708 wickets with 37 5-wicket hauls. Warne may well turn the ball a good deal, had outstanding control on line and length and got various LBW dismissals with his deadly flippers.

Warne’s bowling average was 25.41 in Test matches. Warne also had taken 293 wickets in 194 ODIs and 1319 wickets at 26.11 in his first-class cricket career.
