BBL 08 Fantasy Cricket – Halftime Report

Bigbash league fantasy pointsFantasy Sports XI based on highest number of points secured by players from each category (from Match 1 to Match 31)

The Big Bash League 2018-19 has reached the halfway point.  Last season’s runner-up Hobart Hurricanes are top of the table with 12 points from 7 games, while Melbourne Stars, who finished last in BBL 07, are at the bottom with just 6 points from 8 games.

We take a look at which players have claimed most fantasy cricket points in BBL so far and how they did it.

No Stopping D’Arcy🏏

There’s never a dull moment when D’Arcy Short is at the crease. The 28-year-old has picked up from where he left off last season. He has already struck four half-centuries for Hobart Hurricanes and tops our fantasy points chart. Short produced an electrifying unbeaten 96 off 57 balls against Melbourne Stars at the MCG.  Will he yet again end up as the top run-getter?

Out Of The Blocks👬

After a difficult start to their BBL 08 campaign, Brendon McCullum and Shane Watson are finally hitting form. The former New Zealand skipper hit an excellent 69, which included five sixes, against Melbourne Renegades and struck half-centuries in his last three games for Brisbane Heat. Meanwhile, Watson produced a gritty knock in Sydney Thunder’s big win over defending champions, Adelaide Strikers. Will the seasoned cricketers take their teams to the knockout stage?

Sixers Bowlers The Best👌

How come, despite inconsistency from batters, Sydney Sixers managed to climb to third position in BBL 08? Thanks to fluent performance from the bowlers! They have played a vital role in all the four wins of the Sixers. The bowling unit, led by experienced spinner Steve O’Keefe, successfully defended 132 against Melbourne Renegades and restricted Adelaide Strikers to 150 at their home.Bowlers of Sydney Sixers

Thunder Will Miss Buttler😢

Thunder fans must be cursing England Cricket Board for scheduling the West Indies tour in January. The Sydney-based side will have to manage without their wicket-keeper Jos Buttler for the rest of the campaign. The Englishman was in fine form with the bat, scoring 273 runs in seven games. Though Buttler’s 89 against Hobart Hurricanes went in vain, the two half-centuries versus Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers powered the Thunder to victory.

High-flying Christian💪

Age is no barrier to Daniel Christian as the Aussie is having an impressive BBL season. The 35-year-old, outstanding with bat and ball, is on top of our all-rounder table with 178 points. Christian guided Melbourne Renegades to victory in their opening match taking three wickets and scoring the winning runs. He scored a match-winning 49 against Adelaide Strikers in the next game. The knock came off 27 balls and included five sixes.Fantasy points of Daniel Christian against Brisbane Heats and Adelaide Strikers              Fantasy points of Daniel Christian against Brisbane Heats and Adelaide Strikers

Ever-Consistent Rashid Khan🔝

Has there been a bowler in T20s who has been as consistent as Rashid Khan? The Afghanistan spinner is the joint highest wicket-taker this season with 13 wickets at an economy rate of less than five. He has also weaved his magic with the bat scoring a valuable 21 for Adelaide Strikers in the victory over Melbourne Renegades.

Pro Tips to Become a Champion Fantasy Player

fantasy sports tipsDon’t you love the feeling of winning? Follow the below five commandments and become a champion fantasy sports player.

Know Your Sport🏏⚽

How to make the perfect team is one of the burning questions in fantasy sports platforms. Answer: Do your research on players! You cannot win cash prizes without knowing the basics of the sport and its players. It’s important to have the knowledge, and the more you know, more prizes you can win.

Adhere to Deadline⏰

Haven’t you heard that early bird catches the worm first? Create your teams immediately after the leagues have gone live. The best advantage is that when the playing 11 is out, and if one of your players are not in the original squad, you only have to make that one change. A little discipline could bring plenty of rewards.

Leagues: Your Choice🎫

From Rs.1,50,000 to Rs.25 leagues, there are plenty of leagues to play at LeagueAdda. If you are a new fantasy player, play practice leagues before putting your skills to test in paid leagues. Also, be it big or small leagues, join those leagues which increases your winnings.

Fun is Key for Success🏆

England football team manager Gareth Southgate attributed his team’s success in 2018 FIFA World Cup to the power of enjoyment. Having fun brings out the best in people. Winning and losing are part and parcel of the game, but it’s important to enjoy every bit of it. Unlimited fun = continued success on fantasy sports platforms.

Follow Your Brain🧠

Two things you need to succeed in fantasy platforms are quick and logical thinking. Avoid random player selection. The criteria for picking players, captain, and vice-captain should be recent form and overall record. Golden rule: resist heart’s temptations and follow your brain.
