Ask any Indian what their favorite sport is. It is more likely that you will get to hear cricket as an answer. It is also highly likely that you are a cricket fan yourself and have a large number of them in your extended social circle. Cricket in India is not just a game of bat and ball. Considered as a religion in itself, fans have glorified their favorite cricketers as Gods. It is well established, as these are cricketers, who have performed brilliantly and tremendously for the national team in tournaments around the world and brought home the trophy.
It is no surprise that cricket as a sport has an amazing impact on the entire country. Apart from cricket, no other sport in India can bring more than one billion whole countries into shared support, cheer and even solidarity. The game enjoys immense popularity both on and off the cricket pitch. This popularity has led to the creation of ‘street cricket’, otherwise known as street cricket.
As a result of the simplicity and versatility of the game, street cricket has become a form of cricket that can be played anywhere, making it a favorite idle time game for the public of India, playing with friends. Let’s enjoy it.
Cricket has a special place in the cultural life of India and Indian cricket fans are scholars of the game. Nowadays, as a result of technological boom and the growth of high speed internet services across the country, it has become common for people to see every latest news of cricket world and updates of every new development in their mobile phones. Since the launch of the Indian Premier League, the combination of Bollywood celebrities and the world’s finest cricketers in the tournament has made Indian spectators even more fans of cricket. Not only this, this form is also very popular in the United Kingdom!
An important by-product of this cricket craze is the rise of fantasy cricket. Fantasy cricket, as the name suggests, belongs to the popular genre of fantasy sports. Even though fantasy sports as a genre have been in existence for a long time, recently the game has gained prominence in India.
Fantasy cricket is essentially an online, virtual version of cricket played through a mobile app. It is really easy to start with. First of all, you IPL Fantasy Cricket App Need to download. Once the app is installed, you will have to select an upcoming cricket match and create your own fantasy cricket team consisting of eleven players of your choice. Then you have to deposit some money and join a competition, and see in the competition leaderboard how your chosen cricketers are performing on the day of the actual match. On this basis you will earn points. The more points you score, the greater your chances of winning.
In this blog, we will tell you through some tips and tricks how you can get the most out of an IPL fantasy cricket match.
1. Understand Fantasy Cricket Apps In today’s time, there is no dearth of downloading fantasy cricket apps from Google Play Store and Apple App Store. So it is important to familiarize yourself with different apps as not all have the same scoring system. On some apps, batting points (eg runs) are overestimated, while on others, bowling points (eg wickets) are overpriced. Different apps have different scoring systems for Test, T20 and One Day International matches, depending on the format of the cricket.
2. Select the best players It is not new that Indians are fond of their favorite cricketers, but in fantasy cricket, it is important not to be biased and the preference for “big names” can be harmful to you. Ideally you should have a well-balanced team with a large number of all-rounders, as they are players who will earn you points for both batting and bowling, increasing your chances of winning the match.
3. Monitor the performance of the player In fantasy cricket, contrary to the popular saying, the form is temporary but the class is permanent, it is the form and not the class that has much influence on how the cricketers can perform on the day of the actual match. The points you earn depends entirely on how a chosen cricketer performs in the actual match and not on his career record or fame. Therefore, it is important to keep an eye on how your selected players have performed in recent matches, as this will be a more accurate indicator of their potential performance for the upcoming match.
4. Choose your captain and vice-captain wisely This is considered to be the most important aspect when forming a fantasy cricket team. The choices you make for the captain and vice-captain can really decide the difference between winning and losing for you. This is because in fantasy cricket, the captain and the vice-captain earn double and a half times the points earned by normal players, respectively. Therefore, be extra careful when choosing your captain and vice-captain as these decisions can make or break your game.
5. Do not play every time The biggest disadvantage of playing fantasy cricket is the temptation to play every single match. It is recommended that you choose carefully which games to play in order to reduce your financial losses. It is often seen that players who are new to fantasy cricket or who have not done enough research beforehand, lose money because they do not make a big investment in the hope of a big win. Therefore, it is important to choose your match and invest only in games where you are sure that you have a good chance of making at least one win.
6. Select the top-order batsmen Since Indian Premier League K matches are limited overs games, so it is important to have top-order batsmen in your team. This is important because in IPL matches there is limited ball delivery and batsmen will play more and more balls, which will give you maximum points in the match.
Now that you know these essential tips to get the most out of your IPL fantasy cricket match, you are ready to compete with your friends.
European leaders are lifting restrictions across a lockdown-weary bloc as they take what Italy’s prime minister, Mario Draghi, has admitted is a “calculated risk” that accelerating vaccination campaigns will keep stubbornly high infection rates in check.
France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, will present details of a progressive relaxation of Covid measures on Friday, the prime minister, Jean Castex, said on Wednesday, conceding that virus circulation “remains high … but is on a real downward trend”.
France’s rolling seven-day average of new infections has dipped below 28,000 for the first time in more than a month, but hospitals this week exceeded 6,000 Covid-19 intensive care patents for the first time since during the first wave in April 2020.
The French health minister, Olivier Véran, said the South African variant of the virus had risen from 6% to 10% of new cases detected in the greater Paris region, although no infections had been confirmed in mainland France with the Indian variant.
“We have to continue our efforts, particularly against the new variants,” Véran said after millions of primary pupils returned to school this week following a three-week “lockdown lite”. Secondary schools are due to reopen next Monday.
A ban on people travelling beyond a 10km radius of their homes is also set to be lifted on 3 May, with non-essential shops and bar and restaurant terraces expected to open later in the month, along with the country’s nationwide 7pm curfew.
Like other EU member states, France is counting on its vaccination campaign, which is gathering pace rapidly after a slow start, to keep case and hospitalisation numbers down. More than 27% of French adults have received a first dose.
Germany on Wednesday raised its economic growth forecast for 2021, also citing the gathering pace of vaccinations as light at the end of the tunnel after struggling for months to put in place concerted action to halt a virulent second wave.
A amended law in force from Saturday gives Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government greater powers to impose restrictions, including night curfews and school closures, following a lengthy tug of war with the leaders of Germany’s 16 states.
Under the regulation, all regions with incidence rates of more than 100 new infections per 100,000 people over the last seven days must apply shutdowns and curfews, while schools must go online if the incidence rate exceeds 165.
Hopes are growing, however, that curbs can be eased in coming weeks as the proportion of Germans with at least one injection nears 25%. Merkel underlined this week that Europe’s biggest economy is aiming to offer every adult a jab from June.
Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, on Wednesday announced an easing of restrictions from next week, saying that in terms of new infections the worst of the pandemic “is probably behind us” and pointing to grounds for “cautious optimism”.
Shopping malls and museums should reopen from 4 May, when the first three school years will also return to class, with other pupils due to resume in-person classes on 29 May. Hotels will reopen on 8 May and cafe and restaurant terraces on 15 May.
Indoor service will resume from 29 May, when theatres and cinemas will also be able to reopen, Morawiecki said. About 11 million people in Poland, which has a population of 38 million, have received at least one Covid vaccine dose.
The Netherlands on Wednesday lifted a night-time curfew that has been in place for the past three months, and allowed bars and restaurants to serve on outdoor terraces – with no more than two customers per table – between noon and 6pm.
Despite infections running at their highest level since January and Dutch hospitals operating near capacity, shops can also admit more clients and people may now welcome two guests rather than one into their homes in any 24-hour period.
In Italy, bars, restaurants, cinemas and concert halls will partially reopen on Monday after months of stop-start restrictions, with three-quarters of the country’s regions dropping into the low-risk “yellow” categories.
The decision means bars and restaurants can serve customers outside – including, for the first time in six months, in the evening – although a 10pm curfew remains in place. Cinemas, theatres and concert halls will also be able to open at 50% capacity.
Swimming pools, gyms, sporting events and theme parks are expected to follow suit by 1 July in a progressive relaxation that Draghi has admitted is a gamble, with case numbers and intensive care admissions falling slowly but deaths still mounting.
Although there are major disparities between its different regions, Italy’s vaccination programme is gathering pace, with more than 17.5m jabs administered so far in a population of about 60 million.
The head of the German pharmaceuticals company BioNTech, meanwhile, said on Wednesday Europe could achieve herd immunity – estimated by experts at about 70% of the population – against Covid-19 within the next four months.
“Europe will reach herd immunity in July, latest by August,” Ugur Sahin, BioNTech’s chief executive, said. The EU is expected this week to announce a deal to buy a further 1.8bn BioNTech shots in anticipation of a possible need for booster shots.

BERLIN: BioNTech co-founder Ugur Sahin on Wednesday voiced confidence that the vaccine that his company jointly developed with Pfizer works against the Indian variant of the coronavirus. “We are still testing the Indian variant, but the Indian variant has mutations that we have already tested for and which our vaccine works against, so I am confident,” said Sahin. “The vaccine is cleverly built and I’m convinced the bulwark will hold. And if we have to strengthen the bulwark again, then we will do it, that I’m not worried about,” he added. India is facing surging new cases and deaths in the pandemic, and fears are rising that the variant could be contributing to the unfolding catastrophe. The World Health Organization has said the B.1.617 variant of Covid-19 first found in India had as of Tuesday been detected in “at least 17 countries”. The health agency recently listed B.1.617 — which counts several sub-lineages with slightly different mutations and characteristics — as a “variant of interest”. But so far it has stopped short of declaring it a “variant of concern”, which would have indicated that it is more dangerous than the original version of the virus by, for instance, being more transmissible, deadly or able to dodge vaccine protections. The BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine was the first to win authorisation in the West, and has since been deployed in dozens of countries worldwide. Giving an update of the authorisation process in China, Sahin said approval was “very possible in July”. “We are almost through with all questions,” he said.
