What are the New Features on MPL?

With the Indian T20 League 2021 returning with the second half of the tournament this week, the MPL app also returns with massive upgrades to their fantasy cricket. From a more comprehensive user experience to an enhanced season ticket to end Grand contests, the new upgrade has it all.

With the whole tournament set to be hosted in UAE, the different playing conditions and unavailability of certain players is bound to change the equation of the Indian T20 League. While Team Delhi and Chennai ruled the roost in the first half of the competition hosted in India, the change in the host country could see teams like Kolkata and Hyderabad see a change in their fortunes.

Keeping all things in mind, MPL’s fantasy cricket has gone through some upgrades and tweaks to help their fantasy team owners to analyze better and win big.

The Fantasy Assistant 

MPL fantasy cricket team owners will now get every pre-match detail – from pitch report to players’ past performances on a particular venue to the best predicted eleven – before creating a team, thanks to MPL’s Fantasy Assistant.

A significant addition since the first phase of the Indian T20 League 2021, the Fantasy Assistant will act as the ideal help for a user to create the best possible fantasy team. The “FA” sign on the top left corner of a match, accompanied by a flash, will provide details like the pitch report and the type of bowling it favors.

Not only that, but users could also get information regarding top players’ last five performances and their averages in a particular venue as well. Lastly, MPL’s Fantasy Assistant will suggest the best-predicted XI for a particular match, so that a user can put no foot wrong.

Brand New Season Ticket

The second half of the Indian T20 League will see MPL fantasy cricket introducing a new Season Ticket to access a FREE entry into the Grand Contests worth up to Rs 20 lakhs, which will be valid for all the remaining games of the season.  

Upon purchasing the season ticket, users will also get a Rs. 5 bonus ticket for each match thereafter that can be used in any contest pertaining to that match. Not only that, but MPL is currently offering a 30% discount on the season ticket and users can purchase it for only Rs 99.

The Quick Edit 

In a bid to make the team selection and edits more ergonomic for its fantasy cricket team owners, MPL has introduced the first-of-its-kind “Quick Edit” feature that will help in making last-minute team selection easier, while also monitoring your registered contests in one place. 

In “Quick Edit”, MPL fantasy cricket team owners will get a new filter where the non-playing players from both the teams  – who are not in the playing eleven after the team is announced – will be segregated accordingly, so that users can make quick decisions in the eleventh hour. 

This feature segregates the players in order after a fantasy lineup is created, where users can see the non-playing players – who are not in the playing eleven – at the top, followed by the playing players – who are announced in the playing eleven. This will allow one to swap players quickly after the toss.

The “Quick Edit” feature will also make a particular team’s registered contests –  Grand contest, Winner Takes All, Head to Head and Beginner’s Contest – visible on the “Edit Teams” page itself to help a user prioritize better in the last moment.

If these features weren’t enough, MPL also has a provision of “no minimum amount for withdrawal” for its fantasy cricket team owners, wherein one can withdraw all their winnings from their MPL wallet. MPL also credits one’s winnings within an hour of the conclusion of the match.  

Android users can also enjoy a Home Screen Shortcut for MPL’s Fantasy Cricket, where they can quickly access it with just one tap on the Hamburger menu sign. Users can click on the hamburger menu on the home page > settings>Home Screen Shortcuts to use this service.

All these features are now available on the MPL app’s new version rollout, which is smoother, slicker and more comprehensible. Just update your MPL app and enjoy them.

Other features

When creating your fantasy team, click on the image of any player and a pop-up will appear which shows his match-wise fantasy score, the number of points he has gained in the previous matches, and what percentage of people have selected him previously. 

This feature will help you gain better knowledge of players’ past performance and whether they are in form. Additionally, right next to each player’s name, you will also find what percentage of people have picked him in their fantasy team for the previous match and the total points he has accumulated in the series.
