If you’re determined towards something then you definitely find time for it irrespective of what you are pursuing in the daily life. Someone has rightly said, once you make it your priority then no matter what, you’ll definitely find time for it. And we are going to introduce you to one of the very best examples of the above saying.
He is one of our elite users, who follows a tight work schedule but because of his strong inclination for the game Cricket, finds time to not just play and watch it but also compete in Fantasy Cricket on HalaPlay. We found his journey on the platform commendable (having won over ₹7 Lakh in no time) and so decided to interview him to know more about his strategies and work-life balance. Our team was able to get some interesting responses to the questions asked, all credits to his patience and cooperation.
Here it goes!
Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where you grew up, went to school, what you did before Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS)?
Myself Vivek Kumar Singh, known by vivek6129 on HalaPlay. I’m from Kanpur (UP), completed my graduation from CSIM University Kanpur. Currently, living in Chennai and working under Ministry of Defence, Central Govt. of India. Cricket is my passion, I am very much interested in watching and playing cricket, and now Fantasy Cricket is also added in the list. My journey in Fantasy Sports started 4 years ago.
When did you start playing on HalaPlay and how were you introduced to it?
I don’t remember it vividly but I guess I came to know of HalaPlay about 2 years ago from Youtube. Soon I realised that it is really an amazing Fantasy Sports platform to earn money.
Compared to any other similar platform, I strongly believe HalaPlay is very beneficial, earning money is very easy here and you can fulfil a lot of your financial needs by investing very less.
Tell us a bit about your Daily Fantasy journey. The struggles you had and successes.
Just like in life you are constantly facing ups and downs, same applies for Fantasy Sports (be it Fantasy Cricket or Fantasy Football) as well. Sometime you win and sometime you lose, but playing it regularly will get you the much needed experience and that will help immensely in attaining maximum benefit.
What kind of preparation and research goes behind drafting an ideal team for Cricket & Football?
I personally feel there is no need for any intense preparation for playing on Halaplay as it is the only platform that declares the Lineups for each and every match.
You just need to know about the players’ profile, their current form and past performances, some knowledge about the pitch/venue and that is all you need to not just play but also succeed on the platform.
What is the criteria for choosing players (Current form, past records etc.)?
One thing I want to share here is, Luck will not always go in your favour and this you should always remember while drafting a team. That is why I experiment and try a different combination always, sometimes by also dropping the players inform and choosing players who are not in form, mainly because in Cricket, Form is not permanent and can go off anytime.
What is your strategy while choosing a captain for the team, for Cricket & Football?
Choosing a captain is not that easy and kind of tricky. So, I decide my captain depending on the type of match, competition and other conditions.
How much does player position affect your drafting strategy (ST/MID/DEF) in Football?
Yes, this is the most vital thing to be considered while drafting a team in Fantasy Football, in my opinion, defenders have the best chances of giving you maximum points and so I prefer them more than any other positioned players.
Which was your best day on HalaPlay and what do you remember about it?
Recently in NatWest Women’s T20 series final match I earned over ₹43,000. That was one of the biggest days for me on HalaPlay and also the happiest moment in my life.
Which leagues are your favourite on HalaPlay?
I prefer playing either the big leagues like Monster or the small leagues like 5 Players 1 Champion.
Seeing that earning through DFS takes a lot of time and dedication, how do you balance your work life with playing DFS?
Sometimes it is very hard to manage regular work along with Fantasy Sports, but I try to manage both somehow.
If you had one piece of advice to offer to a player new to DFS in terms of strategy, what would it be and why?
I would like to say that if you really want to earn money from playing Fantasy Sports then don’t just play anywhere you feel like, join and play on halaplay because it is a reliable platform (source) trusted by many Fantasy Sports players.
Just keep a small budget initially and gradually increase it depending on your performance.
Where do you see yourself down the road in regards to DFS? Do you want there to be a long-term thing for you? What things do you hope to accomplish as a result of DFS success?
I want to continue playing it for a long term as is has given me great results. And it’s not just a source of extra income for me but also one of the best pastimes I’ve ever had in the recent past. The fun and excitement I get from HalaPlay is beyond my expectations, so I would play as long as possible.
This is surely a stimulating story and this goes to prove the fact that if are determined towards your goal and are genuinely aiming for it, you can achieve everything you desire for. Just keep trying without any second thought, if not immediately, you’ll definitely succeed eventually.
