Here are a few strategies that will give you that extra edge while choosing your MYPL.
Choose your star player and we will double the points scored by your star player Select player from the team that has a higher chance of winning the game single handed. You would want a player who is multi faceted. He should be a player who bats at least in the top 4 of an innings, one who will bowl a minimum of 8 over's and one who does his fielding in critical areas of the ground.
Go through the pitch report given by experts before the toss. Pick the batsman / bowlers who are known to excel on those pitch conditions. The best way to do this is to go back to the last series / tournament and see how the players performed on certain type of surfaces. For example, if the expert informs that there are traces of green grass left on the pitch by the curator. You can understand that the pitch seems to be seam friendly and it will assist bowlers who have the skill to swing the ball both ways. Similarly, if informed that it is a flat track, where a number of games have been played recently and the curator of the ground has not had enough time to work with the pitch. You would choose spinners as that pitch would be more conducive to spin.
Often the most number of wickets fall towards the last overs of the match as the chasing team throws wickets away trying to reach an aggressive target. This is where having a specialist death over bowler helps as they usually pick up 2, sometimes 3 wickets in their last few overs. Try to pick at least one or two in your playing side.
Don't always pick your favourites. This is the golden rule of any fantasy game. Even though you might love the way your favourite player can smash a ton or take wickets when he's on song. Remember the object of this game is not to have the best team but to win by scoring the most number of points.
It goes without saying. Research players and observe how they've done in their recent outings. You will be surprised to know that not all of them are the stars of the game. Keep a constant track of consistent performers over pitch conditions and the past matches. Picking a consistent guys is better than risking all on a new entry or a favourite - at least there's some guarantee behind having a consistent performer who may not have hit his average last match, but guess what, he will hit above it or around it next match for sure. Be sure to decide players based on recent averages (say last 10 matches) and form.
Wicket-keepers that bat higher up in the batting order is always a good selection as they will score runs as well score definite points for caught behind wickets and stumping chances.
Be alert for players who are prone to injuries or if a player had walked off the field due to an injury. Check on the nature of his injury and decide if it's a serious one. If it is, he is sure not going to feature in the next game. For example, I had selected Rohit Sharma in my playing 9. However, I had realised in the after match press release for the previous game, Virat said he could be rested a game to recover fully. So I selected David Warner instead. You will be very successful in your selections if you are alert to such information.
Select your player based on his performance in a particular format. For example, in a T20 format select few bowlers as T20 is a batters game. Selecting an opening batsman and players who walk in at No 3 or No 4 is a better choice.
