Captain and Vice-Captain

In Fantasy Cricket, you should pick your captain and vice-captain wisely. A captain is awarded 2x the points earned by the player in the match and the vice-captain earns 1.5x points scored by him in the match. Picking the right players for these roles can boost your chances of winning big!

Know the Tips & Tricks of Fantasy Cricket to win great prizes at MPL.

In Fantasy Cricket, the contributions of a substitute fielder are not taken into consideration. However, in domestic matches conducted under the Cricket Australia Board, the contributions made by Concussion Substitutes (a like-for-like replacement for a player who suffers a concussion during a game) do impact your points tally. The key to winning big in Fantasy Cricket is to know the points system at the back of your hand. Understanding the points system makes it easier for you to create your team and choose the right players for the right roles.

Important notes:

  • Starting points are assigned to any player based on the announcement of his/her inclusion in the team. However, if the player is unable to start the match after being included in the team sheet, he/she will not score any points. Points shall, however, be applicable (including starting points) to any player who plays as a replacement of such player to whom starting points were initially assigned.
  • None of the events occurring during a Super Over, if any, will be considered for Points to be assigned/applied to a player.
