Good strategies for playing Fantasy Cricket

Fantasy Cricket is one of the best parts of Fantasy Sports Genre. In this online game, you get to create your virtual team on real players and score based on their performance in real life matches. This match is based on your skill, not luck. The players that you select should be based on facts and figures not just whims and fancies. In this game, the skill with which you select your players predominates over the elements of luck and chance.

There are a few things you can keep in mind while preparing your best lineup for Fantain Fantasy Cricket.
  • ·         The players you pick for Fantasy Sports is purely based on the individual and not the team he plays for.
  • ·         The type of cricket being played matters. Players selected for a test match could be different from those in a T20. Batsmen tend to walk away with the game in a T20 more often.
  • ·         Read the pitch report and the weather conditions of the venue of the game.
  • ·         Based on the above, decide the team composition. The number of batsmen and bowlers you want on the team depends on the pitch. It also helps you decide between fast bowlers and spinners.
  • ·         Look at the strengths and the weaknesses of both the teams. You have a limit of picking only seven players from each team. Choose wisely to balance the talent. Pick the top performers. This is a fantasy lineup, not a favourite players’ team.
  • ·         Look at the past performances, the latest performances and the current form of the player. Don’t pick your players based on just reputation.
  • ·         The history of the player also includes his scores against the team he is playing against now. The track record speaks volumes as well.
  • ·         The return on investment makes a difference. If you think a player is too overpriced and is not worth his performance, drop him. A player who can participate in more than one role might be worth the price. Even if he does not contribute with the bat, chances are he might with the ball or with impeccable fielding. Keep an eye on your funds all the time.
  • ·         Keep a track on the injuries and personal commitments as well. Watch the Fantain App’s news. Stay informed and on top. The player should be available.
  • ·         If the wicket-keeper is a good batsman, he is a safe bet.
  • ·         Bowlers who can take on the opposition in the middle overs are good to add.
  • ·         Pick your captain and vice captain well. They will give you added points.
  • ·         Make a list with categories. First choice players who will be on your team no matter what. Good value players who will guarantee your return on investment. Low priced players who could be your winner.


The fantasy cricket team is best prepared by those who have done their homework well. Pick well and do not let your heart take over completely. A player makes for a good add irrespective of the team he plays for as long as he performs well and is consistent. He is your winner. Don’t ignore your gut feelings though.


Good luck.

Editor's Pick (ODI Finals): Bangladesh - Sri Lanka

The finals are finally here. Bangladesh meets Sri Lanka leaving Zimbabwe out. You might think that being home series for Bangladesh, it is really no big deal. But it really is not so. Sri Lanka lost home series. Now Australia is facing severe defeat by England. There is no such thing that it is normal for the home team to win anymore. Plus I would really like to appreciate Bangladesh for the way they are making into the big league of cricket today. If you look at the points table, you will see that Bangladesh won three out of four matches. Their points - 15 - are almost four times the score of Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka, with 9 points, made it to the finals. The last match saw Sri Lanka Beat Bangladesh. The only match that the home team ever lost. Makes you wonder if Bangladesh peaked a tad too early, doesn’t it? It was a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. Bangladesh were 82 all out in 24 overs. Sri Lanka hit the target in less than 12 overs and won by ten wickets. It was really a o

Sachin Tendulkar - wish list from a fan

Sachin has just 2 test matches to go.  This is not a blog talking about what a great player he was - that will come later.  And this certainly is not about whether he should have retired earlier - I promise. This is about what I would like Sachin to do in the last 4 innings of his illustrious career. 1.   Bat with a bigger bat lift.  Of late, Sachin has started poking and prodding at the ball - with a very short backlift.  Whether this is because of his tennis elbow problem or because he is not able to pick up the swing - I don't know.  It might also be because he sports a much more defensive mindset when he goes out to bat.  For one, I would like to see Sachin bat with a much bigger bat swing.   The bat comes down at a vicious pace with the ability to send the ball back past the bowler at the rate of knots. 2.  Don't let those balls outside the off stump go to the wicket keeper.  That is very un-Sachinlike.  Get that left root out and across and slam the ball to the cover

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans - Post Match Blog.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Ain't it true. Newcomers Sultans thrash Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener sending shockwaves through the league. Being a defending champion did take a toll on Peshawar Zalmi. Not easy walking into a tournament with everyone looking at you assuming you will win. When the Sultans came in to bat, they had an early upset when they lost the opener for a duck. With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style. Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contri
