Choose the site

There are plenty of online betting sites to choose from, but we are going to keep it simple here.

We highly recommend that you choose one of these sites:


All of these are excellent options, but if you are unsure which to choose then go with Betway. You can always try another site if you want to later.

Choose a deposit option

The next step is to put money in your betting account so that you can start betting. Depending on where you are from, this is easier said than done. If you are from India for example, there are limited options available.

You need to deposit funds before you can place bets, it is not possible to bet on credit with online betting site

There are many different deposit options for betting sites, and here are a couple of the most popular ones:

  • Debit cards
  • Credit cards
  • ecoPayz
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Entropay
  • Astropay
  • Neosurf

The simplest way to deposit is to use debit or credit cards, but they are a bit hit and miss if they even work, but I would suggest just trying them out to see if they work. The worst that could happen is that they are declined.

The alternative to card payments is to use either ewallets or pre-paid cards. Both of these options are a bit harder to setup, but once you have them up and running, they are way more reliable.

Create your team

Select 11 players to form your fantasy team with 100 credit points. But you can only pick a maximum of 7 players from one team. The 11 players should include batsmen, wicketkeeper, bowlers, and all-rounders. Pick two players to be the captain and vice-captain of your team. Choose them wisely – they can multiply your points, increasing your score.

What are the rules to create a playing 11?

  • You need to create your fantasy team using 100 credit points only
  • You cannot choose more than 7 players from a team
  • You can only choose a single wicket keeper
  • You have to pick all the skills (batsmen, all-rounder, bowler) for a team
  • After selecting a team of 11, you have to choose a Captain and Vice-Captain

What is the importance of a captain and vice-captain?

Choose the best players as the captain and vice-captain for your team. While the captain bags 2X score (twice the points earned) of his performance, the vice-captain earns 1.5X score (one and a half times the points earned). Select players you think will perform well and gain you bonus points.

How to calculate the points in Fantasy Cricket

  • Each player in fantasy cricket gets 2 points each for being a part of team 11.
  • Captain gets 2X points
  • Vice-captain gets 1.5X points
  • No points are allocated to a player during a Super Over

Bonus points are awarded on:

  • Boundary
  • Half-century
  • Century
  • Economy rate
  • Strike rate
  • If a player converts his half century to a complete century, then points are allocated for full century only.
