To win grand leagues on Cricduel, you must make risky, low percentage picks that can make your team stand above all others. KL Rahul is riskier than the other BM1 Options, Kohli and Sharma, but he will be picked the least by your opponents. If he is the top scoring Batsman, as your captain, you will be at a HUGE advantage.
To win small leagues and head-to-head contests on Cricduel, you should simply pick the most steady performers at each position.
Between Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah at Captain and Vice-Captain, you are guaranteeing a high minimum of points. If your Captain and Vice-captain performs, it is likely enough to win most head-to-head and small league matches on Cricduel.
