A. The Line Up is crucial to any cricket match and it can decide a win or loss. It is very important to have the right Line Up for your team. The Line Up will let you decide which batsman to send first or which bowler to go last. It helps you set the order for your players.

You can access Line Up by clicking on the Line Up button present right next to the Yellow PLAY button on the main screen with all the buildings( also referred to as dashboard).

A. You can train your players by collecting training points. To choose which player you want to train, go to my players and select the player of choice. Hit on the train button to train the player.

You can charge the Superpowers of a player (considering his Superpower is unlocked which means the player has to be on level 5 or above) in a match by playing 0,1 or 2 runs successfully.

You can activate the Superpower by tapping on it (bottom right, in-match) once it has successfully charged.

Q. How do the In-match probabilities work?

A. In-match probabilities are directly tied to your players’s skill. This means that every delivery bowled by a bowler is compared to every shot the batsman can play. This comparison gives you the probabilities as seen on the screen.

Train and level-up your players to get higher probabilities in the match!
