Cricket League Basics
1. Travel all over the world and play at some of the famous stadiums
Starting with Mumbai as the default stadium, Cricket Leagues brings you the opportunity to play at some of the iconic stadiums around the world: Karachi, Adelaide, Dubai Johannesburg, Dhaka, Melbourne, and last but not the least, the Home of Cricket, London. Each stadium unlocks at different levels. Compete with online users and defeat them to rise the ranks and unlock new stadiums in turn.
2. Understanding the in-game Currencies
The game rewards everyone with some gems and 2000 in-game coins as a jump start. You can use these gems to buy new player cards and build your dream team. Coins are required to upgrade an existing card to a new level that would improve its in-game performance. A small number of coins are also required as a pass to enter an online match.
The rewards earned after winning a match are double the number of coins spent to enter the same. Coins to be spent in entering a game increases with each new stadium that you unlock and play at. It is a bargain actually, as the game guarantees you double the number of coins in return if you manage to defeat your opponent.
In addition to that, you win exciting Player Packs based on your performance that unlocks after a certain period. There are 3 kinds of Packs:
|Pack Name||Guaranteed Rewards|
|Basic Pack||3 Common Player Cards(either new players or an upgrade to the existing player cards)+ In-game coins|
|Deluxe Pack||11 Player Cards (either new players or an upgrade to the existing player cards) with a chance to find Rare and Epic Cards that would help boost your squad+ 3 Common Balls+ In-game coins and gems.|
|Elite Pack||11 Common Player Cards(either new players or an upgrade to the existing player cards)+A Guaranteed Rare or Epic card(either new players or an upgrade to an existing card) to help you boost your squad+ Common Balls+ In-game coins and gems|
3. Daily Login Rewards and Deals

Improvise on your Batting technique
Since games are short and quick, you need to adjust your batsman real soon. The first and foremost tip is to see where the bowler is looking to pitch the ball. Accordingly, swipe in that direction to move your batsman in the range of the ball to make a shot.
When the bowler is ready with his run-up, drag the bat backward with full force and hold that position until the ball hits the pitch. As soon as a pitched-up delivery hits the floor, release your bat and swipe in the direction you want to hit that delivery.
If the bowler pitches the delivery at a Yorker length you need to make your shot a tad earlier or else your stumps would go flying. To deal with those Yorkers make the shot just before the ball hits the ground. By doing so you can convert those deliveries into full tosses and make them sail over the fielders.
The fate of each delivery depends on your timing and placement. A timing bar on the left of your screens would analyze the quality of your shots and provide you with an impression after each delivery. The 3 colors on the timing bar resemble the following:
- Upper Red: Too Early
- Yellow Region: OK
- Green Region: Good Timing
- Blue region: Perfect Timing
- Lower Red: Too Late
The challenge however lies in the fact that the game allows multiple bowlers (maximum 3) to bowl in a single over a game. When a pace bowler bowls at you, the ball comes real quick, so you need to make your shot early in contrast to a medium pacer or a spinner. Your opponent might bowl the first two deliveries with a pacer and the next two with a spinner. As a result, you would get less time for adjusting and in the process might end up making a mishit.
So, to avoid that, you have to be prepared and adjust yourself according to the bowler real quick. Remember it is a 1 over the game, so you have to score a handful of runs and also save your wicket since the game allows you only 1 wicket. if you find any hassle whatsoever in the game, you can always fall back to this Cricket League beginners guide for help. Don’t worry, like always we have got you.
Bowl the perfect delivery
Alternately after every two games, you would be bowling first/batting first. The latter scenario is a bit favorable since you know the total you have to defend and just go on hitting the right areas. Play with Awesome Deliveries like Doosra, Off-Spin, Flippers, Out Swingers, and In-Swingers. You can play up to 3 bowlers in a given game.
We would suggest you choose one of each kind, a pacer or a swing bowler (if you have one in the team), a medium pacer, and a spin option. This trio could come in handy since if one of them is thrashed by the opponent, the other two can bowl out the remaining deliveries. This would check the flow of runs to some extent since it would take the batsman at least a delivery to read the new bowler.
Your success in the bowling department is also dependent on the ball type. The game offers some special balls with enhanced performance like pitching and timing to make things hard for your opponent batsman. You can either purchase them with cash or get a few of those balls for free in the Elite and Deluxe Player Packs which are rewarded to you if you end up on the winning side in a one-sided encounter.
Select the bowler you want to bowl with by tapping on the bowler’s face shown on the left-hand side of your screen and choosing from the drop-down menu. After that select the end you want to bowl from (Round the Wicket/Over the Wicket). Choose the ball you want to bowl with by tapping on the ball icon and choosing from the drop-down menu. Special balls guarantee enhanced performance.
Next up, choose the kind of delivery you want to bowl (Out Swing/In Swing/Off Break/Flipper) if your bowler has some special ones in his bag apart from the regular ones. Bowling Flippers is a really good option as the ball tends to stay low and makes it difficult for the batsman to hit. Pitch the ball by gently sliding the white marker on the pitch and tap on it when you are satisfied with the line and length.
Vary it after each delivery thereby allowing the batsman less time to adjust. The quality of the delivery i.e. the amount of turn/pace in it is again decided by a quality bar. A slider moves up and down the bar. You need to stop that slider by tapping on it while it is crossing the non-red zones. Stopping it at the red zones results in a no-ball so avoid that.
The blue zone indicates the ideal pace in the case of a fast bowler and maximum turn if you are bowling with a spinner. Not saying that you have to ideally hit those deliveries in the blue zones. Varying the pace/turn is a really good option in a limited-overs game. Just avoid the red zones as losing a game will lead to draining out of In-game coins.
Avoid the extra runs
- Avoiding bowling no balls as it gifts the batsman an extra delivery. If you bowl three no balls in a game your opponent is declared as winner without further continuation of play.
- Same goes for wide deliveries. You bowl 3 wides and you are out of the contest.
- There would be an action timer on the top left corner of your screens. The bowling action needs to be completed within that time frame, failing which a Time Out warning is generated. If you fail to do so, the second time in a single game, you are out of the contest and your opponent is declared winner.
Ever faced disconnection issues in online games? It hurts right? Especially when you are in a winning position and boom, out of nowhere you lose the game.

How do i buy elite/epic batsman with my gems?
Hey mate! Quickly navigate to the Shop tab. You will find the Daily Deals section over there, that offers you Player Cards at a fairly discounted price. At least 1 Epic/Rare Player Card shows up each day in this section. Additionally, you can purchase the League Packs, Champion Packs and Superstar Packs from the Shop. These packs come with guaranteed Rare/Epic Player Cards. Mathematically speaking, the Champion Pack and Superstar Pack would cost you a lot of Gems and hence we suggest you to go for the League Pack that requires only 90 Gems for opening, or look for steal… Read more »
