What are Free Hits?
Free hits are special Chips that you can use to boost your Fantasy Points in a Single Match during an active round.
Here’s how it works:
Before the start(deadline) of the match click on the Free Hit icon located at the bottom of the Home screen to select one of the 4 Free Hits to apply for that match.
Few things to keep in mind before selecting Free Hits:
You CANNOT make changes to Free Hits once selected. Make your selection carefully.
You can only select a Free Hit before the deadline(official match start time) of a match, after the deadline you won’t be able to select or make changes to the Free Hit for that match.
You can select ONLY ONE Free Hit per Match.
Each Free Hit CANNOT be used MORE than once per Round. You can use all 4 free hits in each Round(only 1 Free Hit per match)
If you do not have any players playing in your Fantasy Team who are playing in that real-life match, you will not get any Free Hit bonus points.
Unused Free Hits will NOT be carried forward to the next Round.
In simple words, for Star Skipper your Captain will earn 3X points instead of the regular 2X points & Star Deputy your Vice Captain will earn 3X points instead of the regular 1.5X points
There are a total of 4 Free Hits:
1. Super Sixes - Player will get 5X of the BONUS points for every six they hit in that match(Super Sixes Free Hit does not apply to the points for runs, it only applies to the Six Bonus points received for each Six). This means that you will get a total of 8 points for every Six(0.5x6 = 3 for Runs scored and 1X5 = 5 for the Super Sixes Free hit)
2. Bowling Machine - Player will get 2X points for every wicket(except Run Outs) This means that if a Player from your team takes a wicket you will get 10x2 = 20 points. The Bowling Machine Free Hit bonus DOES NOT apply to the 4 & 5 wicket haul bonus points.
3. Star Skipper - Using this Free Hit will help your Captain earn 3X points. So if the captain of your team is playing in that match and you have applied this Free Hit, your Captain’s points will be tripled instead of only being doubled (Captain’s Total Points for the match x 3. assuming your captain earned 20 total points in that match(Points as per Fantasy Stats), the Captain will get a total of 60 points 20x3=60 instead of the regular 40 points 20x2=40 )
Star Skipper Free Hit only applies to the Captain and Not to the Vice Captain.
If your team’s Captain is not playing in that match Free Hit will not apply.
Remember, the Star Skipper Free Hit will only give your captain 3X points for his performance in that match and no other matches in the Round. For any other matches, your Captain will continue to receive 2x points.
4. Star Deputy - Using this Free Hit will help your Vice Captain earn 3X points. So if the Vice Captain of your team is playing in that match and you have applied this Free Hit his points will be tripled (Vice-Captain’s Total Points for the match x 3: assuming your vice-captain earned 20 total points in that match which includes the original 1.5x points, the Vice Captain will get a total of 60 points 20x3=60 instead of the regular 30 points 20x1.5 = 30)
The Star Deputy Free Hit only applies to the Vice Captain and Not to the Captain.
If your team’s Vice Captain is not playing in that match Free Hit will not apply.
Remember, the Star Skipper Free Hit will only give your Vice Captain 3X points for his performance in that match and no other matches in the Round. For any other matches, your Vice Captain will continue to receive 1.5x points.
*All 4 Free Hits will be available for Round 8 and Round 9. Remember you can only use one Free Hit per match.
