Introduction to Dream 11 Mega Contest
Fantasy Applications have grown a lot in recent times and are still growing when it comes to India. Among hundreds of applications, Dream11 is the most successful, trusted one, and the application does offer a huge pool of contest with cash prizes.
The Mega Contests, Grand Leagues offer as much as 15 crore rupees as cash prizes, but it is certainly not easy to win them, blame the competition.
To stand out among the fantasy players, you need more than just the knowledge about real cricket. It takes more, starting from strategy planning to a little bit of luck. Here are a few points to help you out.
Invest more on known matches:
The first point to keep in mind is the match you pick. You have to make sure that you are investing in the matches where you have vast knowledge; about the teams, the players, their statistics, and the condition.
Pick match-winners first:
It’s a no-brainer. If you know the players very well, you will know the match-winners/marquee players, the players who can win us matches single-handedly, for example, Kieron Pollard.
Picking the less-credit players:
After picking the match-winners-who likely will have more credits- You need to complete the team with players who can add additional points to the scoreboard and can be a match-winner too. A player like Rahul Chahar can make the difference when it comes to the points.
It is not about team balance:
Yes, you are picking your dream fantasy team, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should pick a balanced team.
In some matches, a combination of 4 wicket-keepers, 3 batsmen, 1 all-rounder, 3 bowlers would work too.
Ideally, it is always better to have more number of all-rounders-considering they usually bowl- as they can grab us more points.
Dream 11 is based on luck too. One cannot predict that a cricketer would perform in every single match.
Having said that, it is important not to miss out on players who usually bounce back quickly after a failure, for example, players like Virat Kohli or Kane Williamson usually bounces back quickly.
Grand Leagues allows 11 multiple entries. You can go ahead with different combinations and line-ups which would increase your chance of winning.
You can have a line-up with risky players, say someone like Glenn Maxwell and you may go ahead with a line-up full of in-form players.
Picking the team captain:
This is always a tricky pick than picking the team itself. Make sure to go ahead with proven game-changers.
Since you can have multiple teams, you can take risks in one or two matches but make sure you don’t go overboard.
Also, read the conditions well before going ahead with the captain. In low-scoring matches, it is better to have a bowler as a captain.
However, it is always better to go with an all-rounder or a batsman as your captain unless you are very sure about the bowler.
If you are adding your team at the last moment, you might end up missing out on important information, say, match conditions.
Thus, it is important to read the news and to keep yourself up to date before entering the cash contest.
Also, make sure to check the Dream 11 prediction, right after the toss and when the playing XI has been announced.
For almost all the matches, you can find the statistics in ESPN Cricinfostatguru. You can see information like how a player has performed at a particular venue, against a particular opponent, etc.
For example, Rohit Sharma has a phenomenal record against Australia compared to any other team.
