The ground-breaking moment for the growth of
fantasy sports, like for most other industries,
was the rise of the Internet in the middle of 90’s
The new technology only eased one’s entry to the
hobby as stats could quickly be compiled online and
news and information became readily available.
With the growth of the industry, fantasy has
branched out to include other sports. The BCCI in
India endorsed their unique version to cash in on
the IPL fantasy in India.
Every cricket fan enthusiastically looks for various
ways and means to be involved with the game.
The IPL fantasy added to this need with its star
studded owners, larger than life stature, and big
bucks riding on the game.
Fantasy Cricket provides users an interactive
medium to connect with cricket. The game appeals
to those who are avid cricket fans.
In simple words, you are given the much desired
experience of an actual Cricket team selector with
you having to choose your team from the best
players on offer.
