In case of a tie between winners of a multiple winner contest for all positions, the prize money for the winner's position and the immediate next winning position (if any), and so forth in accordance with the number of tied winners, will be aggregated and shared equally among the tied winners. All other prize money will remain as per the winner's standing. For example: If there are 2 winners tied for the 1st position, the sum of the 1st and 2nd positions’ prize money will be distributed equally between these 2 winners and the next highest scorer will be awarded the prize money for the 3rd position. Currently, there are no tie-breakers and hence all teams who have scored equal points will be considered as tied for a position.
You can see your team’s rank on “leaderboard” of a particular contest you joined with that team, while the match is live and after the match ends.
If the match is canceled due to some reason, the contests you joined will not be running and any amount used to join contests will be refunded to your Wallet.
If the match is abandoned, the MPL Fantasy match will be canceled and the entry fees will be refunded. This includes scenarios where the real match is abandoned without a single ball being bowled, as well as when the match is abandoned after it has started. Note: If the real match has a result (i.e., ends in a win to either team or a tie but not a "no result") even if not played out fully, we will announce the results of the MPL Fantasy match as per the MPL Fantasy scorecard points accumulated, except where a result of progression of a team in the tournament is a consequence solely of (i) the results of a Super Over or Bowl Out, (ii) the toss of a coin, (iii) prior results between or relative standings of the teams in the tournament, or (iv) any methodology other than those envisaged by the official score revision rules (e.g., Duckworth Lewis Stern) applicable to weather-affected matches in the particular tournament. Where a MPL Fantasy match has been canceled for the aforesaid reasons or any other reasons as may be notified from time to time, the entry fees of all participants in such a match will be refunded in full. For the sake of clarity, the scores of a Super Over shall not be tabulated for the purpose of MPL Fantasy scorecard points under any circumstances.
If the real test match is declared as drawn with neither of the teams completing a single innings, the MPL Fantasy match will be canceled and the entry fees will be refunded. If the real test match is declared drawn with either team (and not necessarily both) completing a single inning, the MPL Fantasy match will be considered to have completed and the entry fees will not be refunded. Note: An innings will be deemed to be completed if a batting team either declares or gets bowled out (i.e., loses ten wickets) in such an innings.
In case of a cash contest, the contest will be canceled and the entry fee will be refunded to your account. But where’s the fun in that? So, make sure you invite as many friends as you can to join the contest and fill the required slots!
Real cash! What can be better than that?
As the players perform in the actual match in real-time, your team keeps earning points for your chosen players’ performances. The points status appearing next to your total points indicates if the match is in progress or completed.
Considering the excitement and passion of fans, we allow our users to pre-select their teams for all the matches that are open on MPL Fantasy at any given point of time.
Sure! But to maintain the element of surprise, we allow users to view other users’ teams only after the deadline. To view your opponent’s team, Go to the Live or Results Option-> Select a match and click on your opponent’s team name. You can also track your competitors by downloading the details of other teams in that contest.
Of course, the beauty of the daily format is that you can join a contest in the middle of a series that is not yet closed (deadline has not passed) and have an equal opportunity of winning as everyone else.
The team which gets the highest points at the end of the match will be announced as the winner of that contest.
We charge a platform fee to access our facilities for improving and maintaining them, as well as awarding cash prizes. However, the entry fee will be credited back to your Wallet in case of cancelled matches. (Please check the answer for ‘What happens if a cricket match is abandoned?’).
