Play the Disney+Hotstar T20 World Cup Dream11 fantasy, and stand a chance to win a signed stump from the captains of the finalists of the 2021 marquee event!
Here's how you can play the T20 World Cup fantasy game, better your friends and win the bragging rights, apart from a lot of exciting prizes!
You will have 100 credits to select your 11 players from the different ICC Men's T20 World Cup sides. You will be required to pick at least one wicket-keeper, 3-6 batters, 1-4 all-rounders, and 3-6 bowlers.
After forming your side, you will need to pick a Captain, whose points will be doubled, and a vice-captain, whose points will be multiplied 1.5 times.
But here's the catch – you can only pick a maximum of 7 players from a single T20 World Cup team!
You'll be provided with 110 transfers that will be rationed into different stages of the tournament – 30 transfers for Round 1, 75 for Super 12 and five for the knock-out stage. The transfers from each stage will not be carried forward, so use them all while you can!
Worried already? Here's a helpline. You can make unlimited transfers for your first Qualifier match, first Super 12 match and the semi-final match, and you can make unlimited changes to the Captain and vice-captain picks.
There are three special powers that you can wield at any stage of the tournament:
1. DoubleUp - 2X your total points in a match!
2. Super Transfer - Get unlimited player transfers in a match!
3. Triple-Impact - Get 3x points for a player in the match!
Don't feel left out, you will automatically be placed in the Global League and your favourite team’s league after you finish creating a team. You can also invite your friends to compete with you by creating a Private League using an Invite link or Invite Code.
As always in any fantasy game, the prices are key and how well you do will depend on how good a balance you strike between the expensive stars and the cost-effective acquisitions.
Some of the more expensive players in the game are below – how will you squeeze them all in?
David Warner – 11
Shakib Al Hasan – 9.5
Jos Buttler – 10.5
Virat Kohli – 11
Kane Williamson – 10
Babar Azam – 11
Quinton de Kock – 10.5
BEST ROUND ONE PERFORMERS
Round One of the T20 World Cup provided an opportunity to pick up some early points, with 12 matches of the tournament played prior to the Super 12 stage.
Some high-scoring players are already on the plane home, with the top three batters – Jatinder Singh, Max O’Dowd and Paul Stirling – all finishing in the bottom two of their groups.
But the early signs suggest there are some bargains to be had among the in-form players making it into the Super 12 stage.
Sri Lanka’s Maheesh Theekshana was the top-scoring bowler in Round One, and is available for just 6.5 credits, with three of his team’s games to be played at Sharjah where conditions should be in his favour.
And David Wiese (8.5) of Namibia is a wildcard all-rounder pick for the Super 12 stage, with his power-hitting down the order likely to be on display again.
But the two stand-out players from Round One, and two all-rounders that would have been strong picks pre-tournament for any Dream 11, are Wanindu Hasaranga and Shakib Al Hasan.
The Bangladesh star was comfortably the top scorer in Round One, and has shown his pedigree against the best in the past. While Sri Lanka’s Hasaranga is in form with the bat as well as the ball, hitting a quickfire 71 against Ireland.
The pair don’t come cheap, but could still be worth it at 9.5 credits apiece.
If you finish first on the leaderboard at the end of the tournament, you will stand a chance to win a signed stump by the finalist captains, a signed team bat, as well as a signed captain's bat.
If you rank first in daily matches, you will be awarded vouchers for the ICC Official Merchandise Store.
