In addition, it provides extensive insights on topics such as the performance history of players during a particular tournament and against an opponent, average fantasy points, and performance compared to other players.
The feature all in all is a thorough analysis of each player that enables the BalleBaazi community to make informed and strategic decisions while picking the players in their fantasy cricket team.
