Why is Fantasy Cricket so Popular in India?

by:

Different sports are popular in different countries. For example, basketball, baseball, and football are the most popular sports in the US. When it comes to India, one of the most popular sports there is cricket. Coincidently the Indian Premier League is one of the most-watched leagues in India. Both the younger and older generations have favorite players that they love to see play but because they’re from different teams they can’t be seen together. This was impossible up until the legalization of fantasy sports. Fantasy cricket makes every player that ever played cricket available so fans can make any kind of combinations. Fantasy IPL is so popular in India that people place bets on fantasy matches.
