What Is Indian Fantasy Premier League?

The Indian Fantasy Premier League 2021 is a virtual imitation of the real Indian Cricket League which is being played on the cricket field. The participants of the Indian Fantasy Premier League get to create their own virtual IPL teams and they use virtual money to build-up these sides.

The rules and regulations followed in the IPL are also applicable in the Indian Fantasy Premier League 2021. One of these rules is to mandatorily have one uncapped player from India on the side, as well as the restriction on the number of overseas cricketers that one can include in their team.

After the commencement of the tournament, the participants start winning points based on how their selected players in the team are performing. The points will be given to the players on every single aspect of a cricket match, such as batting with a high strike rate, taking wickets or catches, initiating a runout, a number of runs scored, or even maintaining a low economy rate with the ball.

Once the tournament has finished, the participants stand an opportunity to win a large prize amount which is based on their total score accumulated throughout the season.
