What is the importance of knowing the list of retained and released players?

First, as a cricket lover, you want to stay updated. When watching the matches live on your TV or mobile devices, the game will appear much more enjoyable because you know the player lineup.

Second, it is essential to know the players released and retained if you’re playing fantasy cricket. Your fantasy cricket team will fail if you have chosen released players. The cricket team might be virtual, but the scores are awarded based on the players’ actual performance. Therefore, it is crucial to study and follow the players retained by the IPL teams. Your fantasy cricket team will comprise those players.

Tips for creating your virtual cricket team 

A fantasy cricket team consists of players retained by the IPL team. You would want to have a balanced group of bowlers, batsmen, and all-rounders.

All-rounders are the Trojan horses because they can fetch you points by batting, bowling, and wicket-keeping.

Next, carefully choose your captain and vice-captain. The captain carries 2x points and the vice-captain 1.5x points. It can make a huge difference when the scores are being tallied.
Last but not least, don’t stick to one cricket team. You must create more than one team and change the combination of the players. While the core players can remain constant, you can switch one or two players. As the real-life IPL match progresses, you can make adjustments to your team to ensure victory.

Final thoughts 

IPL 2021 is held in Dubai, and the COVD-19 restrictions may hinder your travel plans. As a result, you may miss out on experiencing the adrenaline rush of watching a cricket match from the stadium. Nonetheless, you can be a part of IPL through your mobile device. So play fantasy cricket and join in the fun.
