What is Fantasy Cricket?

How To Play

Fantasy Cricket is an online gaming genre that involves putting 11 top players in a virtual team and getting rewarded in total for their individual performance in a series. As a Fantasy Cricket team selector, you should select the top 11 players who can be best relied upon to score points for your team with their personal performances in batting, bowling and fielding. This is especially better in shorter formats of the game and thus comes into its best in ODIs and T20s.

The best thing is you do not have to stick to these 11 players every time. You can easily replace the low performers with some seemingly better options throughout the ongoing series. This would, of course, depend on several competing factors and we are taking them on subsequently.
