How did fantasy cricket start growing in India?

Cricket is every Indian's favourite sport. Cricket was the first fantasy game which was launched in India. Everyone can enjoy and earn money through their knowledge of cricket. Various cricket fantasy websites and apps are available on the internet to enjoy and play with your dream players.

• All about the history of fantasy cricket:

India fantasy cricket was launched 18 years before. The ESPN Super Selector launched the first ever fantasy sport in India in 2001. It was jointly created by Joy Bhattacharya and ESPN, It just involved a simple process of picking up a team of 11 players within the provided budget. After that, points were awarded to players according to their performance on the real field. During the times of Cricket World Cup 2003 which held in South Africa, the super selector was quite popular among the cricket lovers. More than 500,000 people joined the fantasy cricket. And after the success of super selector, the other huge media houses, such as BBC and Sky Television were inspired and they launched their own fantasy cricket clones.

Nevertheless, fantasy cricket evolved very much in the past 18 years. Initially, there were half a million users but after the evolution, the domain number reached to 20 million users. According to the report of the Indian Federation of Sports Gaming (IFSG), this domain has seen massive growth in the last two years. There are approx 60 companies of fantasy cricket running in the country, and 30 of them were launched in 2017 -18.

• Factors that contribute to the growth of fantasy cricket:

Many factors have helped to grow this sector of the cricket lovers as a tremendous growth has been seen in the recent years of the Fantasy Cricket in India domain. Some of the factors are discussed below.

1. The increase in the number of smartphones and the lowering of the data charges:

In the last year, the number of smartphone users increased to 337 million in India. According to researches, this figure would reach to half-billion mark by 2022. The increasing competition between Chinese companies is making a huge difference. Moreover, Samsung and Nokia also broke the monopoly which consequently resulted in the lowering of mobile prices in India. Some of the Indian network providers have started providing internet services at very low and cheap prices; therefore, many people are getting the internet connection and the number of fantasy cricket users is increasing day by day.

2. Launch of other fantasy sports:

When Dream 11 received a massive response from the audience, then it did not waste more time to launch other fantasy sports as well. The private leagues, such as the Pro Kabaddi League and Premier Badminton League gained more popularity due to this. Moreover, they increased their domain to other sports as well which helped to cover up a wide spectrum of audience. They also proved that the concept of fantasy sports can be applied to any game in India or even in foreign countries. But still, cricket has gathered most the crowd of the fantasy players. Almost 90% of the people play fantasy cricket, which 90% of the people who play virtual games are only playing cricket and the rest 10 % of people are into other fantasy games.
