How to Play

Creating your team  
Every cricket team you build on vava play11 has to have 11 players, of which a maximum of 7 players can be from any one team playing the real-life match.
Player Combinations
Your vava play11 can have different combinations of players, but has to be within the 100 credit cap and must qualify the following team selection criteria:
Player Type Min Max
Wicket Keeper - WK 1 4
Batsman - BAT 3 6
All Rounder - AR 1 4
Bowler - BWL 3 6

Captain and Vice-Captain Points

Once you have selected your 11 players, you will have to assign a captain and vice-captain for your team.
The captain will give you 2x points scored by them in the actual match.
The vice-captain will give you 1.5x points scored by them in the actual match.
The Captained By (% C By) and Vice-Captained By (% VC By) stats help you understand how other players have chosen their teams.
Choose a popular pick as captain, or find a differential to score big against your competition.
