It is crucial to research the pitch conditions and determine whether they will favour the pace bowlers, spinners, or batsmen. Always make the team keeping mind of pitch conditions and analysis, check the ground history for the previous 3 or 5 matches, and predict accordingly.

3. Performances based on the venue/ venue stats

Some players have a home ground or a lucky ground where they usually perform well whenever they get an opportunity.

4.Toss Dream11 Tips

The toss helps us know which team will bat first and which team will bowl first, essential for team selection and arrangement. For example, a match between India and Sri Lanka is to be played, and one of the teams decides the following conditions.

1st condition: India Bowl first.

We know that, Here, India is a strong team, and Sri Lanka is a weak team. So There is a high chance that Indian bowlers take more wickets. So pick more bowlers from the Indian Team.

When it is India’s turn to Bat, there is also a high chance that India’s middle-order batsmen will not get enough time to hit because the Sri Lankan team will not give a strict target to chase. So it is best to select top-order batsmen from the Indian side. It is better to pick more all-rounders or batsmen than bowlers from the Sri Lankan side. Because If the Sri Lankan team didn’t give a good target to chase for India, then there is a high chance that India won’t lose many wickets.

2nd Condition: India bat first:

In this case, Indian bowlers are still crucial. Because there is a high chance that Indian bowlers will all out the Sri Lankan team. Select more batsmen from the Indian Team. As there is a higher probability of them score big.

After analyzing the Playing XI, One can also pick all-rounders in their Team if decent all-rounders are playing. However, it is best to pick more bowlers than batsmen from the Sri Lankan team in this case because Sri Lanka’s bowlers will take India’s wickets.

5. Playing XI should be Updated

It is useless if you don’t update your team regularly after the official team’s Playing XI is announced because if a player isn’t playing in the match, that will reduce your odds against other Dream11 users. So always make sure your players are in the Playing XI of their respective teams.

Some tips on shortlisting players a captaincy selection

  • In general, all-rounders are the best choice for captain and vice-captain. An all-rounder gets to bat and also bowl his quota of overs is the perfect choice for captaincy because he can get you double the points than any other player. Example: Shakib Al Hassan, Ben Stokes, Hardik Pandya, Jason Holder, etc.
  • A star batsman who consistently performs and delivers match-winning performances by his anchoring the innings skill are always the right choice for captain and vice-captain. Example: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, Steve smith
  • Explosive opener batsman like Rohit Sharma, Jason Roy, Chris Gayle, Aaron Finch and Colin Munro can play big innings on their day as they are a hit-or-miss type of player and don’t frequently perform well and sometimes get out early. So, one should always analyse the pitch conditions and select these players considering their favourite grounds where they mostly play well and favourable conditions.
  • Some bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Mitchell Starc, Rashid khan etc. are capable of changing the course of the match suddenly and pick early wickets for their team.
  • Select bowlers according to pitch conditions and previous performance against particular opponents.
  • It is essential to make a balanced team as two players who are likely to outplay each other is not a good option in a match. Example if Mohammad Amir is vice-captain Rohit Sharma is captain, they are unlikely to work because either of them is likely to destroy the other player’s day.
