Two eleven-person teams play Cricket.

Each team bats and fields and/or bowls for at least one inning.

A bowler from the fielding team will bowl the ball to the batsman, who will aim to hit the ball with their bat.

The fielding team tries to get the batsmen out by…
  • While bowling, hitting the wickets with the ball
  • Catching a batsman's shot and catching it on the full
  • LBW, or hitting the wickets before the batsmen can run to the other end of the pitch.
Before getting out, the batsman aims to score as many runs as possible...
  • Hitting the ball and running between the wickets before the fielders can hit the wickets with the ball. One run is when you run the entire length of the pitch.
  • 4 runs are scored when the ball is hit to the boundary along the ground.
  • 6 runs are scored when the ball is hit over the boundary on the full.
  • Before the fielding team can change over and begin batting, they must first get 10 batsman out.
  • The game's goal is to score as many runs as possible before the opposing fielding side takes 10 wickets. The team that scores the most runs is the winner.
Hints & Tips
  1. When creating your team, choose performers over favourites. Those players can help you win games by batting, bowling, or both.
  2. Your Captain gets 3x additional points for each run, and the Vice-Captain gets 2x points for each run. To maximise your benefit, you should choose these two players with caution.
  3. A player who thrived in the same venue against similar or unlike opponents. That player might help. We also recommend you keep an uncapped player on your team—both his batting and bowling styles.
  4. Consider the weather and pitch reports. The player's flexibility should be tested.
  5. It may be challenging to win with only one squad. Making many teams increases your winning chances. This is because the fantasy Cricket software has multiple games for each match.
  6. It may be impossible to win with one squad. Improve your chances by making many teams. It doesn't matter if you lose one game because the fantasy Cricket app has multiple games for each match.
  7. During difficult batting conditions, keep your hands close to your body, develop comfort attacking and attempting to evade the short ball, and practice your shots.
