Play IPL Fantasy League 2021 Online: IPL is arguably cricket’s biggest show on earth. There are hardly any international series taking place during the IPL season, and if there are any, the response is often tepid and matches feel insipid. IPL is too good, too hot in comparison to other leagues. It’s total Hollywood, with the biggest actors, only for analogy, performing in front of our eyes, doing what they are good at, pulling out something unthinkable at times, and giving us belief, for our own dreams, that we can also succeed in whatever we do.
And it so happens that IPL offers the biggest opportunities to fantasy platforms and fantasy players as well. If you are a fanatic about cricket, playing IPL Fantasy League can manifold your passion for the sport, and make you watch the game with more intent and verve, often making you believe that you are part of the actual game. You have to have that feeling.
IPL has its own Fantasy League with the 2021 IPL fantasy League version even better. There are some cool changes with the way a user can play, like changes to the roster and playing 11. We have got you covered. Here is everything you want to know about Play Fantasy Cricket IPL.
1. What is Dream11 IPL Fantasy League?
IPL Fantasy League is the official fantasy cricket game powered by Dream11.
2. How To Play IPL Fantasy League?
You have to have a valid account on Fantasy IPL T20 official portal.
3. IPL Fantasy League: Creating Your Team
Once you have an account on the IPL Fantasy League platform, your account is credited with 100 credit points. You must select 11 players, as per rules, to make your fantasy cricket team.
4. How to make a team in IPL fantasy league?
You can have a maximum of 4 overseas players in your team.
Your team must have 1-4 wicket-keepers, 3-6 batsmen, 1-4 all-rounders and 3-6 bowlers.
5. IPL Fantasy League: Transfer Of Players
If you want to make changes to your established team, you are allowed to do so via transfer. However, there is a cap on the numbers of transfer a player can make in a team.
All the things we mentioned above are basic and you can go through all the details on the Official IPL Fantasy League website.
However, there have been some major changes for the new IPL 2021 season. Here are all the details:
1. First Change
This feature allows you to earn double the points during a match.
For example, if you apply a booster on Ben Stokes, every point Ben Stokes earn will get double.
It’s clear that this feature is best used with the all-rounders or with the power hitters who score quickly. Players such as Ben Stokes, Andre Russell, Shakib-al-Hasan, and Hardik Pandya can fetch you a great number of points.
More powers to your special players, just like double-up, this feature adds more value to the points earned by your player. It increases the points threefold. So as mentioned above, all-rounders and big hitters offer more value while using this feature.
This is an incredible feature that can give your team a completely different look.
You are given an unlimited number of transfers under this feature. But you are advised to use this special feature in a game where you have a feeling that your team is weak.
Also, during the playoff rounds, this feature can give you power over your rivals.
2. Second Change
Free Uncapped Player
Under this new change, you get one free uncapped player for every game. An uncapped player is someone, who hasn’t played for team India either in Tests, ODIs or T20Is.
For example, Shahrukh Khan, who is yet to play for Team India in any form, is an uncapped player and if we choose Khan to replace someone from our playing 11 in case that player fails to deliver, then that could be a game-changing decision.
3. IPL Fantasy League Match Transfers
This change was needed. It created a lot of confusion for IPL Fantasy League players last season.
Now under the new rule, we can make changes to our teams before each game. But last season, during double-headers / two matches on a single day, we had to make all the changes to both the teams before the start of the first game.
4. IPL Fantasy League Stats
It’s not all about playing a fantasy game, numbers and stats always fascinate a cricket lover. How your team is performing and which players are available for transfers and which ones are giving you a good return can now be tracked easily.
5. IPL Fantasy League Badges
With every achievement and completion of the match, as per your performance, you are given a badge and your set of tasks are updated as well.
6. Admin Controls
You have total control over your teams. If you feel like your privacy is being intruded upon by someone, you can remove that user.
IPL is set to commence on April 9 with the match between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Five-time IPL champions MI are once again everyone’s favourite but don’t count out MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings, while all other teams also have the roster to go all the way.
