Fantasy Cricket: The captain and vice captain are the players who get double and 1.5 times the points, therefore, picking the right players are crucial.

Fantasy cricket is a game of skills, strategy (and a bit of luck!). While picking a right XI is crucial, one of the most important decisions you have to make to succeed in fantasy cricket is choosing the right captain and vice captain for your team. The captain and vice captain are the players who get double and 1.5 times the points, respectively for their performance in the match. Therefore, picking the right captain and vice captain can make a huge difference in your fantasy score and ranking.

Here are some tips to help you pick the right captain and vice captain for your fantasy cricket team:

Forget the favourites! Analyze form and record of players

The first tip is to look at the current form and record of the players you are considering for the captain and vice captain roles. You should check their recent performances in the format, at the venue, their past performances against the same opponent. This will help you identify the players who are consistent, and are in good touch. You should avoid picking players based on your liking.

Go for all-rounders!

Another thing to keep in mind while picking your fantasy team captain and vice-captain is to select players who can contribute in more than one aspect of the game, such as batting, bowling, and fielding. An all-rounder can fetch you fantasy points from both runs and wickets. They can also score bonus points from catches, run-outs. You should look for players who bat in the top order, bowl their full quota of overs, and are good fielders.
