Dream11: Earn Money for Watching Cricket

Dream11, a sporting application with lakhs of competitors participating online following a motto #KheloDimaagSe 

Earlier, when sporting events were telecasted LIVE on our TV Channels, we just enjoyed and spent our valuable Time by merely watching them. When won by our favorites, we celebrated with joy and enthusiasm, but in reverse result, we just ended up being High on Criticism. With an upgrade in Technology and Android being in prime form, it has become possible of “Play and Win”.

Dream 11 is an Android Application, which is designed especially for Cricket lovers to give them a chance to select their own cricket team. In every cricket match, whether being International/Domestic/County, users win a chance to promote their own selected team and earn cash by participating in contests with the help of points.

Here are the steps following which you can earn through this app:-
1. Install Dream 11 application from Google Play Store.


2. Create your account.


3. Get Started:-

Follow the above steps to get started:-

  • Select  a  match:

After creating your account, you will come across the matches which are upcoming in the FIXTURES  column. Select any of them from current or upcoming.


  • Create Your Team:

Now then you have a frequent watch on the matches, so you have a clear idea who stands where and who deserves what. Using your knowledge and visualization, you can showcase your skills to create your own Dream11 team. Here you are allotted with a budget of 100 credits. Every player will be assigned a unique number of credits depending upon the popularity and rankings. You are supposed to create your team of 11 players within the allotted budget only.


  • Join a contest:

There you go…. you have now created your team of 11 players, you can join any of the Dream11 free or cash contests available in the FIXTURES column to win cash and the ultimate bragging rights to show off your improvement in the Free/Skill contests available.


  • Follow the match:

It is pretty important that you come to know about the standings of your dream11 team amongst the competitors. So watch the LIVE telecast of the match to track your fantasy scorecard. The fantasy scorecard gets updated after every 3 minutes.

  • Withdraw Your Winnings:

There are rankings allotted in every contest depending upon the choice. Considering the number of competitors in that, rankings are allotted with the breakdown of cash prize as well and out of the total number of competitors, 50% of them win i.e. if 500 are competitors, then 250 of them win in the contest. You can instantly withdraw your winnings (Cash prize won in the contest) from your Dream11 account with the help of just an OTV (One Time Verification).


4. Creating Your Team:-

As mentioned above, there are 100 credits assigned while creating Dream11 team. It becomes necessary that there should be certain guidelines which will help in proving your skills and knowledge in sports through exposing them. Here are certain guidelines which are to be followed:-

G1: Select a Match:-

Select any upcoming match from the list of ongoing and upcoming series in the mentioned sports column-wise. Here we will take Cricket into consideration as it is treated as a Religion in India and second most loved sport. Click on the “Create Team” button.


G2: Create Your Team:-

Select players for your Dream11 team from all 4 of the categories mentioned below:

WK: Wicket-keeper

BAT: Batsman

BWL: Bowlers

AR: All-rounders

A few things to note down here in Guideline 2nd which will result in higher winning chances. Here we go:

1. Check player info by clicking on the “i” next to the player name at any point.

2. Sort the players as per their teams, credits, and points.

3. Keep an eye on the following:-

  • Number of players added in your team
  • Available Credits
  • The deadline for team submission

Dream11  Dream11  Dream11  Dream11


G3: Select your Dream11 team’s Captain and Vice-Captain:-

After creating your Dream11 team, you need to choose a Captain and a Vice Captain for the team.

Captain: Earns 2x (double)  points scored by him in the actual game.

Vice-Captain: Earns 1.5x(one and a half) points scored by him in the actual game.



G4: Creating Multiple Teams:-

It often happens when you are in a dilemma amongst prioritizing the players you rate the most. In Dream11, You can create upto 6 teams per match and choose to join a contest/contests with any 1 of the teams created.

Click on ‘CREATE TEAM*’ for creating the next team.

“Now just mere participation is not enough in being active in the contest, but also proper management resulting in better competition with peers.”

From here on we move further to have a look at how the created team is to be managed.


5. Managing Your Team:-

It often happens that what we see during the pre-match predictions prove to be genuine after the commencing of the game. This results in some regular players not being a part of the contest we had picked up before the game. This happens because the selection is done on the basis of the performance and conditions suiting the players. To counter this, the Managing Your Team concept plays a very crucial role. Here you can make as many changes as you like until the deadline of that match (1 hour prior to the commencement of the game usually).

You can also change the Captain or the Vice-Captain before the deadline of the match. Select the “Edit Team” button to make changes to your team. Make sure that you keep an eye on which of your players are playing the match and keep your session updated at all times.

Let us now have a look at how the points distribution takes place of the selection of players in the next part.


6. Fantasy Cricket Points System:-

Here’s how your Dream11 team earns Fantasy points:

Bonus Points                                                                                                                                                                                 

Economy Rate:                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Strike Rate( except Bowlers)                                                                                                                                                    

Fantasy Points System works on certain other rules and regulations as well. We get to know from the following:


It is pretty important to keep a track on the amount being deposited/earned from the contests. This is because you get a fair idea on the know-how of the future contests to participate.


7. Account Balance: 

You can view, withdraw or deposit money into your Dream11 account anytime by going to the “My Account” link. The only need is of One Time Account Verification process to be undergone before the withdrawal of money from your Dream11 account. The process is pretty easy and not time-consuming as well without repetition unless you change any of your details.  Money in your Dream11 account is divided into 3 categories:

a) Unutilized: This is the amount which is deposited but not being used in the participation of any league.

b) Winnings: This is the amount of money earned as “winnings” through any cash leagues joined. No processing fees are charged for withdrawing this amount from your winnings.

c) Cash Bonus: This is the amount given by Dream11 to you which cannot be withdrawn. It can be used in the participation of leagues laeding to more winnings. This amount has a certain validity. So use it very effectively and timely as well.



It takes a considerable amount of matches to get set in this playing environment. However, with effective use of your sporting skills and knowledge, this gaming app can make you and your dream team Zero to Hero.
