IPL Fantasy League Tips

With only a little time left for the fourteenth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), cricket fans all around the world have started to get excited for what is perhaps the biggest annual cricketing festival. But as fantasy cricket has started to provide fans with intimate participation in the games in recent years, a huge portion of the ongoing excitement can be attributed to the IPL fantasy leagues. IPL Fantasy League is where both cricketing pundits and faithful fans come up with their own IPL prediction and find themselves to be a part of the ongoing action.


IPL Fantasy League 2021


IPL Fantasy League is actually a virtual game. In this game the participants create their own teams with the help of virtual currency. The real life players of different IPL teams are assigned with a virtual value and the goal is to create a team out of these players. Obviously there are restrictions such as the limit of foreign players featuring in a team and the compulsion of an uncapped Indian cricketer to be a part of the team.

The teams are allowed a certain number of changes over the course of the tournament. The virtual participants accumulate points based on the performance of players featuring in their team. This includes all aspects of the game such as scoring runs, taking wickets, holding catches, maintaining high strike rate, low economy rate, forcing run-outs etc. At the end of the tournament, the participants have a real chance to win real prizes or money based on their cumulative scores over the course of the season.

IPL Fantasy Tips & Tricks

 

Now, while IPL Fantasy is a virtual game meant for entertainment purposes, it can actually land you several prizes such as season tickets and merchandise if you are consistent and on the top of the leader-board. So, it's always useful to have some fantasy tips and tricks up your sleeves.

 

Build a strong core team

As the number of changes available are limited, you might want to have a strong core team. To build one you have to look at the current ongoing form of players and also the probability of them featuring in every game. For example, the captains and vice-captains of all the teams are most likely to feature in each of their team's games.

 

Focus on the Indian contingent

Although overseas players play an important role, there is a limited number of them featuring in a match. This reduces the odds in their favor of performing well in the fantasy league as well. But it's seen that the team with a better Indian contingent has better chances. And, so you must try and build a very strong Indian contingent for your team.

 

Choose your overseas players wisely

You can only select four overseas players to feature in your fantasy team. And hence, you must choose them wisely. The overseas players you select must be in the top form and must have performed in their recent games. This is because if they are unable to perform, it is most likely they will be dropped in the next match and cost you a valuable change.

All-Rounders are GOLD

Look at it from the perspective of earning points. An all-rounder is most likely to both bat and bowl. Thus he can actually earn you more points. Thus you must utilize them and add all three allowed all-rounders to solidify your team.

 

Uncapped players are DIAMONDS in the rough

According to IPL fantasy rules, each team must feature one uncapped player at least. An uncapped player is an Indian cricketer who hasn't played international cricket for India in any format. The points that these players cost you are minimal when compared to the big guns. But they can be explosive and become a cheap bargain. If you follow domestic cricket, you might be able to pick out the best ones for your own fantasy team.
