Why play fantasy sports?



Playing fantasy sports is no longer an individual game. If you have played it, you will know exactly what I am talking about. It has become a social experience. It’s just as fun as going to the stadium and watching the players play. Even better because you are now more involved in the game than ever. The stakes are personal. If the player on your team hits, you win. If the player is doesn’t play well, you miss out on your points. It is extremely personal. The concept of opposition party does not arise.

Even if you are a steadfast patriot of your country, a part of you would want the members of your fantasy line up to win. This is despite them playing for another country.
Fantasy Sports is now bigger, better and more exciting. Be it football, cricket or any other game; as long as you are passionate and knowledgeable about it, you will have a ball yourself. The results shown on the scoreboard and on the app in your phone will keep you really busy.

Let’s ask the deeper question - to play or not to play fantasy sports. End of the day, people make the enormously wide-off-the-mark assumption that this game is based on pure luck. I would say uh-uh. And the benefits received from playing this game are something people do not even consider possible.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
The most obvious reason first. Playing the game with friends helps you connect. When family and friends play together, there is a lot of time spent with each other. That factor, people automatically tend to overlook or underestimate. A family that plays together stays together. The bonding that takes place is unbelievable.

Another reason is playing against people from different regions. People all over the country of different ages engage in leagues with friends, family and colleagues. Get back in touch with those long lost friends from school by challenging them to a round of Fantasy Sports. You can play not just against people you know but also compete with total strangers.

This social activity is also a fun hobby that enhances your thinking skills and boosts your ability to analyse and strategise your perfect team. This game makes thinking and evaluating data a lot of fun. You get to use not just the internet but the Fantain Fantasy App to check out the relevant numbers and decide if you want that particular player in your line up or not. All this is bound to make you smarter. Cooler. More logical in nature. You make decisions based on cold data and not just superstition. Your attention to detail as well as your memory improves. All this will spill over in other aspects of your life as well. You are bound to stand out, one way or the other.

With this game, there is a lot more to watch. While most of them root for just one team, you will support your personal lineup as well. Just do not get so carried away that you forget your original preferences.

You get to put all those years of watching the game to good use. Years that people around you have dissed. This is the time you get to show those cynical sceptics your winnings and be proud. Fantasy games give you a very good reason to get together and make a party around it. 

Switch on the match on the big TV. Put some snacks out. Get your lineup ready on the Fantain App on your phone. Watch the scores and have a ball.

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
