Top 10 Fantasy pl tips

Sergio Regulion

Crystal Palace will have their hands full when Nuno’s Spurs travel to Selhurst Park. The Spanish full-back looks set to continue his impressive performance and his marauding runs down the left flank could reward him with an assist against an underwhelming opposition.

Mason Greenwood

The Manchester United striker has scored three goals in as many games. He has slowly vaulted himself into the Red Devils’ starting XI and with Ronaldo just arriving and Sancho having a forgettable opener against Wolves, Greenwood is likely to get a chance to continue his streak against Newcastle.

Pontus Jansson

Brentford look like they belong and their unrelenting defense is a key reason why. They have only conceded one goal so far and against Brighton at home, they most likely will be impenetrable. Jansson will also provide a good attacking threat and get points in the form of goals or assists.

Bruno Fernandes

Easily the popular choice. Newcastle is one of the Portuguese’ favoured opponents and if he finds a way to exploit the space between the lines, he could be unleashed. The Manchester United man is a potent threat and could just get lively at any point in the match.

Michail Antonio

Antonio has been a force to be reckoned with since the beginning of the season. The Jamaican forward has registered four goals and as many assists so far this season. Facing a Southampton side who are still looking for their first win, Antonio could drive up his numbers to a bigger extent and create the most impact during the week.


After a brilliant first week, Richarlison has been fairly quiet. But the home outing against Burnley could be the catalyst for another remarkable performance. He will be fuelled by the international break and Burnely could bear the brunt of his exploits.

Pick players according to the conditions

With the IPL being one of the biggest tournaments globally, there are many big-ticket cricketers who come to play the league. A player such as Eoin Morgan might be lethal in England conditions, or Steve Smith could be great in Australia, but chances of them succeeding are slim in India. Instead, you should always go for players that have been proven performers in India over the years. Here’s where your cricket knowledge will come into play. Someone like Suryakumar Yadav will be a much more efficient buy in your fantasy cricket team rather than a big-ticket player. Always go for those players that might give you important fantasy points in Indian conditions. Top-order batsmen, batting allrounders, and spin bowlers have generally done well in India, and they should always make it your fantasy cricket team. Before creating your fantasy cricket team for any match:

  • Go with an open mind.
  • Do not pick a player in fantasy league just because you feel he might do well.
  • Do careful research on each player, look up their stats and numbers, and then decide your final fantasy playing XI. Check out our blog section for in-depth analysis, predictions, probable XI, among others. Some players have a few favourite venues as well. Rohit Sharma, for example, consistently performs well at the Eden Gardens, in Kolkata irrespective of his form. Sometimes, the venue also brings the best out of a player, and you should always consider this before finalising your fantasy XI.

Research about the uncapped players well

According to the IPL fantasy league rules, you need to pick at least one uncapped player in your fantasy team. While uncapped players might sometimes feel unnecessary, in IPL, they can be the difference between you winning and losing a contest. The IPL is one of the most-watched domestic leagues globally, and it gives players a terrific platform. Every young player who gets a chance to play in the T2o tournament wants to do well and brings out his best with millions of people watching. Time and again, we have seen in the IPL, players who are unknown entities make their mark. Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar – are just some of the names that have made big just because of the IPL. Look out for such players who you think can help you win big in fantasy cricket. This will obviously need a fair bit of research. Check the recent domestic numbers of uncapped players. The Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy are good pointers to check the stats of uncapped players.

Be very careful when deciding on your captain and vice captain

The captain and vice-captain of your fantasy XI more often than not determine which way your fantasy team is heading. The captain of your team will get 2x the points while the vice captain gets 1.5 times the points. Make sure you carefully research every player and then decide on your choices. It is mostly recommended that you pick all rounders or wicket keepers as captain as they are likely to provide you points in more than one area. You can also go for the more prominent names for their consistency but once in a while, take a risk and pick an unknown entity to lead your IPL fantasy team. You never know which player shines on a given day in a fantasy league. The other thing you should always consider while making your fantasy team is to look at the conditions and ground. If the match is taking place in Kolkata, you could have one of the spinners or slower bowlers as captain. For games in Bangalore, it is a no-brainer that one of the top-order batsmen or batting all rounder should be your captain. In addition, you should also keep a close eye on the weather report and the toss result.

Create multiple teams to increase your chances of winning in fantasy cricket

Depending on the type of contest, you can create multiple teams on the MPL fantasy cricket. It is always advisable you select a core side and then make fantasy sides with different combinations and enter the various contests. The more teams you participate with increases your chances of winning. Even if one of your teams is not doing well, there are chances you might end up winning with the other team. Shuffle your players around, use a different batting line-up and bowling combination for different sets of teams so that you have all your bases covered. Have different captains and vice captains for your sides, and keep a backup game plan just if your team does not do well. Experience in different formats, even in fantasy cricket helps.
