The Edgbaston cricket ground will be the pinnacle of attraction as India and Pakistan renew their age old rivalry this coming Sunday. Although the ICC event commenced yesterday, one can be rest assured that the real impetus will be generated through this match. Both Sarfraz Ahmed and Virat Kohli are coming into this mega event (ICC events) with their first major assignments as captains of their respective sides.
Keeping in mind the high intensity of this contest, team selection will be matter of huge debate for both the sides. Pakistan has its team sorted out as their players were not part of the IPL played recently, something the Indian team doesn’t have the luxury of. Virat Kohli has a well-balanced squad with a mixture of good ODI and T20 players. But choosing an ODI team on the basis of IPL performance is an art in itself. But if someone tells you that Kohli is taking help of fantasy cricket winners of Baadshah gaming to pick his side for the most awaited clash, it is bound to raise interest.
Being the captain of Indian cricket team takes more than just talent and attitude, that X factor, which differentiates leaders from visionaries. And Kohli has again proved it through his method of team selection. It is learnt by Faking News resources that Kohli has been in touch with some Fantasy league winners and seeking their help in getting the team combination right.
Kohli had this to say when asked to confirm this news, “I was always interested in fantasy cricket since my childhood, and have seen people apply their brain to the fullest in selecting a fantasy team. Recently one of my friends introduced me to Baadshah gaming and its Fantasy cricket offering. At first I thought, it is just another fantasy game, but after having a closer look at the features like daily tournaments, ‘Maha Match’ and ‘Chhota game’, I really thought that taking help of the winners won’t be a bad idea. In fact I have already got some tips for the team selection, which I obviously can’t share because of confidentiality issues.”
To confirm the credibility of Kohli’s claims, our team did a look up on Baadshah gaming and now we have not seen them in office since last 2 days, as they are too engrossed in the fantasy league to turn up to office. We won’t be surprised if Kohli’s claims and Baadshah gaming’s simplicity will make ‘fantasy cricket’ a household name in the country. We will be back with a more extensive review of Baadshah gaming in the next 2-3 days as right now I have to rush to create my own team before the marquee clash.
