We live in a country where if you ask any adult in their 20s or 30s about their childhood dream;“Bro, apne ko to cricketer banne ka tha!” will come the inadvertent reply. The world of fantasy is a fun place where you get to involve yourself in the real-time gaming scenario through a virtual platform.
Deepak Sood, belonging from Jwalamukhi (Himachal Pradesh) is one such gentleman of the fantasy cricket arena who has been a cricket lover since childhood & who’s debut on BalleBaazi app has been outrightly sensational!
Deepak is our Mega League Winner from the SAF vs PAK ODI match on 30th Jan. What makes his success story intriguing is the fact that he had signed up on BalleBaazi on the exact same day! We had a chance to have a candid chat with our champ 1-on-1. Read on:
Q: How does it feel to have a dream debut like this?
A: It feels amazing! I’m absolutely thrilled by the experience BalleBaazi has given me on Day 1. With so many options available on the platform, anyone having the slightest bit of knowledge of cricket has the opportunity to earn a good amount. Also, I’m trying Batting & Bowling leagues as well and there also I am winning!
Q: Why did you choose Quinton de Cock as Captain & Fakhar Zaman as Vice Captain?
A: If you look at the records, Quinton De Cock recently had a great domestic record and I had a hunch that he might perform in this match considering the fact that he had not really delivered in the opening matches. Same was for Fakhar Zaman because he too, had not performed in the first 4 matches so I thought he will play well in this one owing to the fact that he is a good player.
Q: According to you, what is more important in fantasy: Knowledge or Luck?
A: Knowledge; undoubtedly is a major factor because if your facts are right only then will luck favor you! Chance obviously plays a role but it’s your own follow-ship of the game that creates the major difference.
Q: Since when has the Cricket Keeda bitten you?
A: I have been playing & the following cricket since I was 10. I am a Branch Manager at the Cooperative Society Bank and even during my working hours, on and off I follow cricket like a true fan!
Q: Going forward, what is going to be your strategy and what leagues are you planning to join with BalleBaazi?
A: Right now, I’m totally focusing on the BalleBaazi App since it’s still early days and the competition is much less plus there are multiple leagues so I’ll keep playing more and joining more leagues increasing my chances of winning. Overall, I’m loving this experience and going ahead I shall keep updating my knowledge to yield best results.
