  • fanzania stance on less player as WK option in list
    • • Unfortunately, at this time we are not in a position to make a large-scale change to the wicketkeeper list as this poses a considerable risk of invalidating teams already created by other users. As you might know, we have a one-wk per team rule and adding more wicketkeepers to the list can end up breaking this rule where teams already have these players selected. We understand that this might not be the solution you’d have liked but after careful consideration we have come to this conclusion.

    • • On a positive note, we would like to bring to your attention that as we have set most key wicketkeeper batsmen as batsmen, you will be still be able to select more than one of these wicketkeeper batsmen. You will still get all the points they score. We consider this to be better than the scenario where these players are set as wicketkeepers and you are forced to choose between the likes of Buttler and Rahul due to the one-wk rule.

    • • We fully understand that the wicketkeeper rule need to be improved in terms of users being able to add more than one wicketkeeper. We have already started planning for this improvement and plan to have this implemented in future.

For example, we have 5 teams in a league with Total points 100, 200, 300, 400, 0 respectively then League points will be average of all which is 200 + League Weightage 5*10 = 250.

    fanzania offers two modes for playing fantasy cricket: Tournament Mode and Match mode.

  • What is Tournament mode?

    Tournament mode can be compared with Test cricket, i.e. elegant and classic. There are few of us who have always played the classic tournament mode for more than a decade. Tournament mode allows a user to play fantasy cricket for an entire tournament with a predefined set of transfers to make through the tournament. Tournament mode also offers the users to play in a private league of their own with their close friends with similar passion for playing fantasy cricket. fanzania Tournament mode offers many new features like the use of 3 power plays, live score, statistics and many more.

  • What is Match mode?

    Match mode is can be compared with T20 cricket, i.e. short, power packed and 3 hours of madness. This mode has been designed for users who cannot spare dedicated time to play an entire tournament but would like to play in a global league for a match of their choice. The match mode enables users to be engaged in short quick stints based on available time. fanzania offers many innovative features for match mode like some fun facts never heard of. Users stand a chance to win exciting prizes.

  • What are the rules for creating a team in the Match mode?

    A user can have a maximum of 8 players from a single team in a given match with one Wicket-keeper, 1 – 3 all-rounders, 3 - 5 bowlers and 3 - 5 batsmen.

  • How are Captain and Vice-Captain points calculated in the Match mode?

    A user will get 2x points scored by his captain and 1.5x points scored by his vice-captain where x denotes the number of fanzania points scored by the respective players.

  • How do I check if I am eligible for a reward ?

    You can navigate to your “My Wallet” section on you fanzania profile and view your rewards under the “My Rewards” section. You should be able to see a breakdown of all your rewards won.

  • How is my rank calculated in Match mode ?

    fanzania uses a unique ranking system in the Match Contest Mode ensuring that no two players share the same rank. Prizes are distributed based on this unique rank, that is calculated using the following criteria:

    Criteria 1: Total Points earned – The team earning the most points ranks higher than the others. In case the Total Points earned by two teams are tied then the following three additional Criteria are applied to decide the unique rank.

    Criteria 2: Captain’s Points - If two teams earn the same total points, then the team whose captain scores the most points ranks higher than then other team.

    Criteria 3: Vice-Captain’s Points - If two teams earn the same Total Points and their Captains also score the same points then, the team whose Vice-Captain scores the most points ranks higher than the other team.

    Criteria 4: fanzania Team Creation time - If two teams have the same Total Points, Captain’s points as well as Vice Captain’s points, then the team that was created in fanzania first ranks higher than the other team.

    We do not anticipate Criteria 4 to be the same for any two players and the buck stops here !
