Two Important Reasons-
It makes the sport more interactive for the fans as they are not merely watching but also participating in the game. Itâ€™s well known that almost every Indian has his/her own opinion on the choice of eleven that should be playing in the team and who should be the captain.
In fantasy sports, users have the freedom to choose their own team and appoint their own captain and vice-captain. It is their team so each user can take ownership of his or her actions.
The second thing is that it separates the passionate followers from the occasional ones. If someone is not following the sport regularly, he or she may not be familiar with the players, their forms, ground conditions, pitch, etc. To randomly choose a team is not enough to win the game.

Fantasy cricket sports as a game requires the user to select a team based on the application of their knowledge of the particular sport and involves player performance analysis. The results are dependent on the performances of each individual player rather than of a single-player thereby reducing the likelihood of luck. Thus, it requires users to have an understanding of the game and a judgment of the selected playerâ€™s performance.
Fantasy sports is expected to cross 100 million users by 2020. The survey was conducted taking into account only consumers who had played fantasy sports in the last 12 months, with the sample sourced from regular users of online sports fantasy games as well as professionals who regularly engage in fantasy sports- 71% of the respondents play fantasy cricket and 54% of the respondents play fantasy football. The â€˜Ability to manage teams virtuallyâ€™, â€˜Remain connected with the sportâ€™ and â€˜Utilisation of sports knowledgeâ€™ were other important motivators for engagement.
A game of skill can be defined as any game or contest in which the designating element of the outcome is the judgment, skill or adroitness of the participant in the contest rather than pure chance. Such types of games encourage the user to understand, experience and analyze aspects related to the game.
Fantasy sports are vastly different from sports betting. As per the Indian legal system, fantasy sports and sports betting or gambling activities are differentiated on the basis of the predominance of â€˜skillâ€™ or â€˜luckâ€™.
This clarification of the legal status of the fantasy sports format has helped boost the overall fantasy sports market in terms of a larger number of platforms entering the market with similar formats and also leading to widespread user adoption in the country.
