There are certain rules that a player needs to follow if he/she is playing a fantasy cricket. For instance, the minimum age for playing on most of the sites is 18 years. The person should be a citizen of the country that considers fantasy cricket a game of skill. Also, the place from where you are physically present should not prohibit this sport.
Once all the rules are in place, a person can select his dream team based on real life statistics. So, in the case of fantasy cricket, the selection is based on the strike rate of the batsman, the efficiency of the captain, the wickets count of bowlers etc. Based on your knowledge about cricket and the current form of players, you make a team of 14 players. Out of these, 11 will play at any given point of time and 3 will be substitutes. You can choose a maximum of 8 players from a single country. Once you are through with your team selection, it’s up to you to mix up the bowling and batting order.
Now comes the playing rules. Any team can bat for a maximum of 20 overs. The bowling team will either have to take 10 wickets or bowl 20 overs. If they don’t fulfil both the conditions, it means they didn’t take 10 wickets and bowled less than 20 overs. In this case, the batting side gets penalty runs. For each missing over, 12 runs are allotted. The winner of the match is decided as in the case of normal cricket match. One who wins gets the prize money, which can be in cash or kind. These are some of the basic rules and the terms can change from site to site.
People utilise their time and energy for earning legally along with getting relaxation and experiencing the nostalgic moments of winning and losing.
