How To Play


Fantasy cricket puts you in the real live matches happening across the world. You create a team of your favourite players and get points based on the real world performance of those players. Earn more points than your friends and win!


You v. Friends (Private groups)

It’s simple (and FREE)! You love cricket, you have friends, family and colleagues that love cricket too – bring them all together and play fantasy cricket on Cricket Hero.

  1. Create your group for the series you want to play for. Don’t forget to personalize it with a cool name and logo!
  2. Invite your friends to your group so they can make play too.
  3. Create your own team and start playing and chatting! We know you’re busy - if you’re in a rush we can automatically create a team for you.

We take care of the administrative stuff – your group will continue through the year so you don’t have to create new ones for each series. Create your group instantly by clicking here. Still have questions? Check out our FAQ section for more details.

You v. The World (Pavilions)

Make new friends!
In addition to your private groups you will be automatically entered into a public group to be entered to win our annual Superhero title. It’s a big deal.

Challenges

Individual head-to-head
Start a private challenge with another user to see who knows more about cricket. The winner gets a trophy – and bragging rights.

Group vs. Group
If that’s not enough for you, rally your group to face off against another group! That’s right, your group of friends against another group in a battle of groups. We’ll pair your scores for a series and the group with the highest average score gets the glory. Will it be yours?
