How to play fantasy cricket?

The first step to learning to play fantasy cricket is knowing the game's basics. It is the same across all fantasy cricket platforms, with the points system being the slight differentiator.

  • The popularity of fantasy cricket over the last few years has made the rules and the player compositions a household knowledge across many countries. Below are the steps to initiate the process of playing fantasy cricket.
  • First, you must download an app on your smartphone and install the application.
  • Usually, fantasy sports have a separate section on any app, and you can go to that section to see the available matches on which you can make your fantasy team.
  • Once you make the team, you can pick the contest you want to play in. You can take part in multiple contests at a time. Generally, every contest has a different entry fee based on which the winnings (real cash) differ.
  • The aim is to score the highest among all the fantasy players competing in the contest. The player scoring the highest will win the most, while the amount will keep reducing from there on.

Rules to pick players in your fantasy cricket team

However, playing fantasy cricket is more complex than it seems. There are rules while picking your fantasy team, and you are allotted a certain budget to do the same. Below, we reiterate the player-picking rules for your fantasy team.

  • Your team must be a combined eleven players from the two teams involved in the match. However, you can have a maximum of 7 players from a single team.
  • Your fantasy team can have various compositions. You can pick a minimum of one wicketkeeper and a maximum of four glovesmen for your fantasy cricket team.
  • While picking batsmen, you must pick a minimum of three and a maximum of six batters.
  • The limit for picking all-rounders is the same as the wicket-keepers. You must have at least one all-rounder, while the maximum is 4 players.
  • The limit for your bowler picks the same as the batters. A minimum of three and a maximum of six.
  • You must pick a captain and vice-captain.
  • You can have as many teams as you want of the same or varying combinations and compete in different leagues.

You will need more than knowing the rules of fantasy cricket alone in acing the game, though. Many factors go into picking the combined eleven for your fantasy cricket team, which will help you score more points than your opponents in the league.
