Thus, there is many competitions in Dream11, you should know how to play the contest right. Here are a few top hidden tips one must know before going to play the game.
1- Selecting your cricket matches:
The major thing is you should keep in mind if you have no knowledge about it as you might end up losing cash. You should know about the players, the conditions, and the pitch report before getting into any of the contest as that will put you at the safe side.
2- Research about the contest
As mentioned before, you must have a good idea about the on-going contest. You must make a good effort to follow the news about the players, and you can very well do your own research on sites like ESPN Cricinfo. For example, some players might have a low record at a particular venue, and at times, the pitch would help the spinners or the pacers more. You must select your teams accordingly as numbers like this will impact the game as well.
3- Selecting an all-rounder team
After doing your own research, you should keep in mind that your sole aim in Dream11 is to win more and more points rather than striking the balance between bowling and batting. In fantasy cricket, your Dream contest team means the team that can give you more points. So, based on the same, it is always wise to go with a greater number of all-rounders who will be batting as well as bowling for the teams.
4- Investing wisely
After selecting your teams, you should not go on to invest all your cash in a single contest as you might end up losing all your cash at once. Instead, you can invest in different games. If you are going to invest Rs 1000, instead of investing them in a single game, you can invest in two different games that have Rs 500 as an entry fee.
5- Captain and Vice-captain picks:
Another important note is that you must always pick the popular player as the captain and vice-captain, the player who usually performs to be on the safe side. You should keep in mind that the captain of your team gives you 2 times the points scored by him/her and the vice-captain gives 1.5 times the points scored.
For example, players like Virat Kohli rarely fail. Also, you can always prefer an all-rounder for your captain as they usually make more points than a pure batsman or a pure bowler.
Dream11 fantasy cricket sites does not allow you to check on their team before the game, you can still check their profile.
6-Risk Factor in Fantasy Cricket:
While picking the players, you can see the selection percentage of players. This is where your own research will come in handy. On the performance base, you can select 1 or 2 players at a particular venue or against the team.
