#2 Choosing wicket-keeper as the captain of your team
A number of cricket matches are played between two neck-to-neck sides where both teams have great wicket-keeper batsmen in their ranks. As you know, one can pick only one wicket-keeper in one's dream 11, if your wicket-keeper performs good with the bat and gloves, you will earn double points than your opponent; if your team's captain is a high-profile batsman, then it is high chances that that player will be the part of your opponents' teams at least. In this case, you will not earn double points than your opponents.
For example, suppose there is a match, being played between England and West Indies, where England has Jonny Bairstow and West Indies has Shai Hope as the wicket-keeper batsman. Now, both the batsmen bat in top 3, so they are going to have enough chances to bat. Other batting option will be the likes of Chris Gayle, Joe Root, Jason Roy etcetera who might be the part of everyone's team. Hence, having the wicket-keeper as the captain might give you double points than your contesters.Published 19 Mar 2019, 16:11 IST
