Your team needs to have four to five batsmen, at least one all-rounder, exactly one wicket-keeper and about two to four bowlers.
Your team cannot comprise of more than 6 players from the same team playing IPL this season.
Your team cannot have more than 4 international players and there has to be at least one uncapped Indian player in the team. Uncapped players are basically those who have not yet played in any ODIs, Test Matches or Twenty20 matches.
Tips to create your dream team and players to target
With the IPL Fantasy League, you can show the world how well you know the game and the players. Here are some tips that can help you:
Look through the available data from IPL regarding various players. IPLSN has all data related to previous performance, strengths, weaknesses and playing approach of all the players. This data will help you pick your team.
For uncapped players, you have a wider choice this year. As India has won U-19 World Cup, there are some quite known uncapped players in this 11th edition of IPL. As there are no data records available for the uncapped players, you can bank on the U19 records to analyse the different players. Prithvi Shaw, Shubham Gill, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Rajneesh Gurbani and Sai Kishore can be some really good players you can target.
