Why Fantasy Cricket Is The Talk Of The Town

Fantasy Cricket is rapidly growing in popularity among the youth in India these days. If you have a passion for Cricket, you can create your own team of players over the internet and play the virtual game on your smart device.

Similarities between Poker and Fantasy Cricket

Poker is a game of strategy. Similarly, winning in fantasy Cricket depends on the player’s analytical thinking and decision-making skills. To make the best team of 11 players within the budget and choose the right contest, you have to research the players and do a thorough analysis of pitch conditions and weather forecasts. As a manager, you need to make high-quality decisions quickly related to choosing the right batsmen and bowlers for your team.

In Poker as well as in fantasy Cricket, there are so many factors to look out for to ensure making the right decision at the right time. At a Poker table, you have to choose your move (bet, call, raise, or fold) and formulate a strategy on the basis of your chip stake, table position, and your understanding of your opponent’s level of skills. In fantasy Cricket, to create the best team, you need to collect information about the player’s best scores and keep yourself updated on upcoming matches. It is also important to pay attention to the player’s past records (total runs, total catches, his performance in the last match, etc). The more information you gather, the easier it becomes to choose the right players for your team.

Just like Poker, luck plays no role in fantasy Cricket. In both games, it is important to constantly work on improving your skills with training and practice to outsmart the opponents and rise to the top in the virtual gaming world. To play like an expert and ensure making profits, you have to implement focus and critical thinking in the game. If you are new to Poker, you can play at freeroll tables to learn the basics and earn the experience of playing in the competitive environment of a gaming room. If you are a beginner fantasy Cricket player, it is recommended to start with participating in a free league. Without making any investments from your pocket, you can get a hands-on understanding of the best ways to choose the players and learn the tips and tricks to reach the top rank on the leaderboard before switching to join a real money league.   

There is no scope of emotion-based decisions in both games. In Poker, when you lose, negative thoughts attempt to take control over your rational thinking ability and put you on ‘tilt’. Therefore, you need to keep your cool at the table all the time regardless of the situation. A good player always keeps a close eye on his opponent’s moves to capitalize on their mistakes. He joins the game after properly calculating the pot odds and never hesitates to fold his favorite hands if he finds that the odds are not in his favor. Similarly, in fantasy Cricket, no matter how much you love the style of play of your favorite Cricketer, your decision to add him to your fantasy Cricket team must always be based on the information you have about his present form and fitness. You need to find out how he performed in the recent matches and how he played against the opponent team in the past before picking him to play for your league.

How To Play Fantasy Cricket

Here are the simple steps to follow to play the game –

  • Register on a fantasy gaming platform.
  • Pick a match from an ongoing or upcoming Cricket series.
  • Create a virtual team of 11 players from both sides playing the match. You get 100 points to build your team/
  • After creating the team, you can join a league to play the game. There are multiple practices and real money leagues available online.

When a player from your virtual team plays in the real match, your team earns points based on his statistical performance (runs, catches, wickets, etc). At the end of the game, the team with the maximum points becomes the winner.

You can easily withdraw your winnings to your bank account. What matters the most is choosing an authentic and reliable fantasy platform where you can deposit and withdraw money without any worries.

Here are some tips to enhance your chances to create the perfect team and win in a Fantasy Cricket game –

  • Due to your limited budget, it is not possible to add every expensive player to your team. Instead of choosing out-of-form players, you should create a combination of big names and consistent performers who can earn maximum points for you. It is important to develop the ability to identify the hidden gems that can score high for your team.    
  • You should add batsmen (top-order, middle-order, lower-order), wicket-keeper, bowlers (fast bowlers or spinners), and all-rounders (who can save runs, score runs, and take wickets) to your team on the basis of their current performance, instead of their experience. If a player has the ability to perform well under pressure on the Cricket pitch, you can consider him a valuable asset to your team.
  • You need to check the weather conditions and study the pitch to determine whether it is bowler-friendly or batsman-friendly. These findings help you maintain the right balance between batsmen and bowlers for the match in your team.
