About Fantasy Cricket?

Fantasy is not a new concept. Ask a 60's cricket fan and he will tell you a XI that he wished played together. The digital age lets you do it in a fun way and more interactive way. And we are at the forefront.

Ok, but what is Hybrid FantasyTM ?

How is Hybrid FantasyTM different from other fantasy games?

In other Cricket Fantasy games, you select players, form a team and join a league. If your selected players don't perform well, you lose. But Hybrid FantasyTM is different. It allows you to take control and become a part of your fantasy team as the 11th player and score points by playing the prediction game while your selected players get points based on their performance in the match.

The eleventh player has nothing to do, right?

Not at all. While your 10 men are on the field trying to make you the best cricket manager ever, you can do your bit by playing ball-by-ball prediction game during live match. Collect points that will add on to the overall score.

Ok, now tell me about traditional fantasy!

So there's no eleventh player for traditional fantasy?
