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.

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.

Venues

The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final.

Editors Pick ( PKL)

Not much cricket happening for the next two days. More time for Kabaddi now. We are in the month of October. Closer to the next round. The status of the teams on the Pro Kabaddi table matter big time now. It is time for the teams to keep an eye on their ranks all the time now. No pressure :)

Let’s take a look at the table. The top three teams in each zone make it to the next level. The points were very close at one point and then apart. Some teams have been super consistent doing well and others, consistently at the bottom of the table. Team A has four teams who are fighting for the next level big time - Gujarat Fortune Giants, Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan and U Mumba. Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi are closer to the bottom and will have to do really really well to make a difference. Zone B - the bottom two teams - Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas are not looking too hot. The top four teams are Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U.P.Yoddha and Telugu Titans.

In a crux, any o…

Editor’s Pick (Women’s Cricket): India - West Indies

India, fourth on the table, has won her first game while West Indies lost. India has a lot to prove for her country. That She deserves as much love and support as the men in blue. Sad that She has to, but circumstances demand it. West Indies on the other hand are looking for a win to kick start their journey to the final.
It is a win-win situation for both the teams. But then, I want my fantasy lineup to win too. So, for this lineup, I have looked up not only the selection percentage generated by fans’ choice, but also the players’ performance in this tournament so far.
My Team 
-Chedean Nation -Mithali Raj -Smriti Mandhana -Punam Raut -Ekta Bisht -Shakera Salman -Shamilia Connel -Poonam Yadav -Meriss Aguilleira -Deepti Sharma -Harmanpreet kaur Let’s hope this clicks. Will you agree with it? Let’s hear some opinions shall we?
