The Indian Premier League, more popularly known as the IPL, is almost here! Today, IPL is perhaps the most famous and eagerly awaited event in the country. This year, ten teams will fight tooth and nail to lift the coveted IPL trophy.
But the teams and fame alone don’t make IPL special. What makes IPL special is the entire ecosystem that has been built around the tournament. Unmatched cricketing skills, athleticism, and team spirit are only a part of this enormous ecosystem.
Sponsors, the massive number of people purchasing stadium tickets, fantasy cricket applications, and even sites like MyBettingSites India complement and complete this ecosystem of the IPL season.
Recently, India’s most controversial “shark”, Arshneer Grover, has launched CrickPe, a sports fantasy app which is being called a competitor to Dream11. Let’s see what each of these apps brings to the table for cricket enthusiasts like us!
To use Dream 11, users must create an account on the platform. Once an account is created, users can browse the lists of contests that are ongoing. Each contest has a different entry fee, prize pool and set of rules.
Once you’ve entered a contest, you can create a virtual team using real-life players. But, you must ensure that the team you’ve made is within the budget set by the contest. The team you’ve assembled can be edited until the contest’s deadline (usually within minutes before the real-life match starts!).
The Dream11 app gives each user a score for their team based on the players’ real-life performance – runs, wickets, etc. The prize pool is distributed to the users whose teams performed the best.
Like its cousin Dream11, CrickPe allows users to participate in public, private and even mega contests to earn money. In fact, contests on CrickPe can also be hosted by users for their friends, family and community.
CrickPe’s slogan is “TUM Jeetoge, CRICKETER Jeetega, CRICKET Jeetega!”. The uniqueness of this slogan is the talk about the cricketer winning. Not only can users directly send cash rewards to crickets, but there is a twist!
10% of the prize pool is given to the cricketers, CrickPe takes another 10%, and the remainder is distributed among the winners. So, in essence, the company does stick to its slogan!
As the countdown to the IPL 2023 season begins, all teams are gearing up to give their best performance. The infectious spirit of the IPL season, comprising epic cricket, cheerleaders, music and fireworks, can already be felt. One thing is clear, no matter the app or website you choose, this IPL season will truly be memorable in its own right.
