It has been absolutely pleasing, my life has immensely changed since the day I started playing Fantasy Sports (especially because of HalaPlay). I have earned reasonable amount playing on the platform and could also gather significant amount for my marriage expenses.
What kind of preparation and research goes behind drafting an ideal team?
Cricbuzz and ESPN are some of my favourite apps that I generally use to learn about new players. I don’t stick to players with current form and mostly try players who more consistent and experienced.
We see that you’ve also referred HalaPlay to friends, do you also play and compete with them?
In my entire office the general trend was to play chess online, but since the day I referred HalaPlay to them everyone has playing Fantasy Sports now on a daily basis. Quite a few of them have also started earning handsomely. It’s a fun and healthy competition now and it also makes me think in different ways which has made the overall process even more thrilling.
What do you like the most about Season Passes?
I love this feature on HalaPlay, it enables me to Play more by spending very less. My favourite amongst them is the Silver Pass and I buy it quite often.
Which leagues are your favourite on HalaPlay?
I prefer the grand leagues mostly and my favourite is the one with entry fee ₹350 because those are the leagues where players go with conservative thinking and hence gets easier to flourish and make reasonable profit.
According to you, when was your best moment (day) on HalaPlay and why?
It was during PSL 2018, my first big victory of ₹20,000 with just a single team in the big league, all thanks to Luke Ronchi, his single handed performance made me make this remarkable feat. That was the starting and since then I’ve earned a lot and on a regular basis.
Playing Fantasy Sports on a daily basis takes considerable time and dedication, how do you balance your work life with it?
Yes it does get hectic many a times, due to which you have to go through pressure in the working hours (in office) so I have made a habit of researching about players in the nights.
If you are asked to give one piece of advice to a player new to Fantasy Sports, what would it be and why?
Do not go with the current form of the players, instead check out his past performances and records. Choose and play wisely, don’t take impulsive decisions. Pick an all rounder as the captain, even a wicket-keeper could fit the bill.
Before playing big, do a good analysis of the scoring criteria and the points system. Don’t give up until you reach the top, be patient and don’t let your morale down if you lose in the initial stages.
Never forget, everyday is not smooth for anyone in Fantasy Sports.
Do you want Fantasy Sports to be a long-term thing for you?
Yes, surely it’s a long term thing for me. Fantasy Cricket has made my life lovely and so I aim to keep playing it forever. HalaPlay has played a big role in this journey and so I wish to be connected with it for a long long time.
