Dream 11 ICC Official Season Long T20 World Cup 2022 Fantasy Game - Tips & Tricks, Differential Players

As we saw in the previous post, ICC has launched the Official Season Long T20 World Cup 2022 Fantasy Game powered by Dream11.

I'm giving below a few tips & tricks with which you can start the game.

Team Composition

Start with a balanced squad of 443 which means 4 players from Australia v New Zealand, 4 players from England v Afghanistan and 3 players from Sri Lanka v Ireland. This year we've a total of 90 transfers for the first 30 matches. So starting in such a fashion would mean you'll have around 90 transfers floor 27 matches which will help you later.

Factoring in the Rain

You have to factor in the rain when making the initial team this time because the 1st match has a 90% chance of rain, 3rd match has a 70% chance of rain and the 4th match again has a 90% chance of rain.

The rain might clear but it would not be a bad strategy to further diversify from the 443 I mentioned above. Maybe split something like 3332 for the first 4 matches. That should cover you in case of rain and you'll have players from further down the line.

Top Heavy, Nailed Players

Another strategy that should work in case of rain shortened matches is picking players who are likely to bat in top 3 and pick fast bowlers who will likely get more overs due to heavy overhead conditions.

Also picking players who are a surety to start are better as it will not lead to wasted transfers.

Now let's look at Top 9 Differential (less then 10% owned) players to start the game

Finn Allen 5.46%

  • Explosive Opening Batsmen
  • In Good form
  • Wait for toss, slim chance Guptill might start over him

Kusal Mendis 0.16%

  • In form nailed keeper batter
  • Faces Ireland

Alex Hales 8.9%

  • Explosive opener
  • Nailed
  • Faces Afghanistan
  • No chance of rain

Wanindu Hasaranga 0.75%

  • Top T20 Bowler
  • Faces Ireland who might struggle against spin
  • Handy with the bat too

Ben Stokes 9.18%

  • Should bat in top 4
  • Nailed to start
  • Might bowl full quota of 4 overs
  • Faces Afghanistan and no chance of rain affecting the match

Mark Wood 7.18%

  • Faces an Afghan side who might struggle with his thunderbolts

Chris Woakes 4.76%

  • Underrated bowler, has a knack of picking wickets in bunches

Curtis Campher 0.01%

  • Most nailed all rounder in Irish side
  • Consistent performer

Maheesh Theekshana 0.12%

  • Mystery spinner
  • Ireland would not have faced anything like him before

These were some of the hidden gems I think could do well at the beginning.
