Our star Fantasy Sports Analyst, Mayank will be giving you a few expert tips to form a team of the best 11. Team formation in cricket is an endless topic. It has a very vast scope, especially in India. But why did we choose Mayank to answer your fantasy sports questions?
He is the founder of the brand FantasyArena. Mayank aka mayankglt, a Fantasy Sports Analyst runs a successful YouTube channel with 1,20,000+ subscribers. He has created a virtual family of fantasy sports lovers and here are a few tips that he insists one must know before choosing the top 11:
There are 22 players who play a certain cricket match. We assume that Team A is playing against Team B.
This completes a basic overview of the match and you are now aware of the recent form of the players.
Fresh grass with a tint of green helps pace bowlers use the pitch to their advantage to seam the bowl (eg. Mohammed Shami is both a swing and seam bowler but more of a seam bowler). Broaden cracks are the kind of pitches where spinners usually tend to make an impact.
Some players love certain grounds, whenever they play there, more often than not they end up piling on the runs. Consider this too while picking ur best 11 at those venues, they will score runs in abundance (Eg. Sachin loved the cricket ground in Sydney, has scored his maiden double hundred, overall 3 100+ Scores and 250+).
Some players love playing against certain oppositions. Eg. Virender Sehwag loved playing against the cricket team of Pakistan and VVS Laksman loved playing against Australia’s cricket team.
In case a player is new, just see his videos of his past domestic performance and you will get an idea of how he performs. To add to that, an all-rounder is an important player so consider all his statistics.
Fantasy Sports is not a sure shot method to earn your livelihood. Play for fun with extra money but do not invest your hard-earned money. Statistics will not work all the time, but even if you invest wisely, you will profit provided you are consistent, and you do your research well.
Do not play all the matches, and please diversify your investments on apps like Gamezy, BalleBaazi, and Playerzpot. Also, if you think this is too much work, then have a broader mindset because money never comes easy. Invest time and do not just go by fluke. Lastly, you also need luck to go your way, and hence you should pick 1-2 players by your own thought process and gut feeling/intuition.
