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.

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w

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
