IPL Fantasy League 2018 – Top 5 Tips
It is very important to ensure not to get carried away with the prospect of scoring big in the early stage of the tournament. One has observed certain patterns and tactics. Down below we share with you our top 5 tips to make you ready for this IPL fantasy league.
1. Pick your Squad according to the Pitch-condition
Select your bowlers/batsmen who are known to excel on the pitch conditions of the match/series. The best way to do this is to go back to the recent series and see how the players performed.
You can easily get the player statistics from there like who was the highest run scorer and the leading wicket-taker, players with the best average and strike rate and players with most catches in the previous editions of the tournament.
From here you will get to know who’ doing great and will fit in the respective category and pick the players on the basis of those performances.
For example, An all-rounder on the top 10 list of highest run scorer and most wicket takers and on the top 5 or top 10 of most catches list will be considered as a great choice and will help you to win. You can also check out the first match prediction between Mi and Csk here.
2. Pick as many Quality all-rounders as you can
All-rounders are the key to win a cricket match and same goes for the fantasy cricket.
A player like Andre Russell who can hit a ball outta stadium and can bowl a few overs and pick wickets every match, then you probably will gather more points.
Moreover, while there are only set spots for your all-rounders, you can also look at batsmen who bowl part-time spin, like Kedar Jadhav.
And also while picking your bowlers, take into consideration their batting ability as well.
A spinner like Harbhajan and a seamer like Mitchell Starc will be good choices, for not only they are talented bowlers but also turn into big hitters situation accordingly. These type of players will surely maximize your points.
3. Make your Power Player a Bowler
In IPL Fantasy League, you have to select a power player who scores double points. For IPL 2018, a second innings power player is also introduced.
You choose the power player before the match starts and he will score points in the second innings alone.
And since you have no idea who will be batting or bowling in the second innings, an all-rounder power player will be a good choice. For the opening match, someone like Shane Watson would make the ideal second innings power player.
However, your main power player should be a bowler for long-term consistency.
Let’s say if a batsman fails then you have a wasted power player but with a bowler, there is always a chance that they can pick up a wicket in later stages of the innings, especially at the death overs.
Batsmen do not get a second chance like bowlers do. Hence, making a bowler your power player, is a great move and will help you gather big points.
Knowledge of everyone and everything about IPL will play the prominent role in deciding your future in the fantasy league. You should be aware of the latest news. Just keep visiting our blog

However, if the player is a quality player, and an alternative would be to pick the player early if you know that he would be available in a couple of days and would feature in the playing XI regularly.
5. Pick some outsiders
Everyone wants to pick the best for their teams. Like Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ben Stokes and why not? They are great, Right?
But at the same time, they are really expensive as well. So it is always wise to choose some cheap players who can perform efficiently and can back you up.
In this game of unpredictability, it is never certain who is going to be the top performer and every now and then young local Indian talents managed to impress everyone with the breakthrough seasons.
If you manage to pick someone who is not the most remarkable player right now but will perform brilliantly in the further stages of the tournament, you will gain a huge advantage over your competitor.
So, these are some of the best ways to ensure the maximum possibility of success in the IPL fantasy league.
