Tips for scoring high in Fantasy Cricket:

  1. Understand the points system — Each website has their own points system for ranking the users. Most system considers the basic attributes like runs, wickets, catches and strike rate. Some sites has different points system based on the match type — ODI, Test and T20. So, choose your players based on the match type. If a site offers points for
  2. Recent performances — If a player is in good form, you can find that by looking at his recent performances. If a player is playing well for a couple of matches, it is highly possible that he will continue his performance in the upcoming match too. Usually batsmen openers stay longer in the game, so can score more. Bowlers in the death bowlers usually gets higher points because the batting team gives away lot of wickets trying to hit big.
  3. Update selections after toss — Once the toss is over, you will get to know who is in the Playing XI and who is not, from the captains. Update your selection in those few minutes before the match starts, to ensure all your 11 players are in the 22 players of the match.
  4. All Rounders as Star players — Most sites offer different types of star players (Eg. Captain/Vice Captain, Silver/Gold etc.,). These player earn 2 times the points or 1.5 times the points. Usually All rounders are chosen for star players. Since they get points in all departments.
  5. Importance to composition (Batsmen, Bowlers, WK & All Rounders) — Choose from all types of players. If you choose most batsmen, then you will not get enough points for bowlers. Not all batsmen are going to score points. All Rounders are very important as they can score on the batting and bowling side. Sometimes, they are good fielders too. Wicket Keepers are important too, since they score points for catches, stumpings, run-outs and runs too. An ideal composition would include 4 batsmen, 1 wicket keeper, 2 all rounders and 4 bowlers.
  6. Balance the teams — Do not choose all your players from your favorite team. In a CSK vs RCB match, if CSK is your favorite team, you might want to choose maximum players from CSK. Avoid doing that. Since it is going to be an equal game, players from both the teams are going to get points. Do not choose more than 6 players from a team.
