The Indian fantasy cricket market is booming. According to a survey by KPMG and the Indian Federation of Sports Gaming, India will have approximately 100 million fantasy cricket players by the end of 2020.
Leading the pack is My 11 Circle, a relatively new fantasy cricket app.
My 11 Circle follows the same trend of fantasy cricket where players have to make their own virtual teams and earn points on the basis of real-life matches.
However, My 11 Circle also has some exciting new features that set itself apart from the rest of the fantasy cricket apps on the market.
Let us see what are those features and how My 11 Circle should be your choice for a fantasy app during this cricket season. Read on…

What is My 11 Circle?
My 11 Circle is a fantasy sports app founded by New York University alumni Trivikraman Thampy and Bhavin Pandya in January 2019.
The app is part of their company Play Games24x7 which has been in operation since 2006. PlayGames 24×7 is famous for India’s leading rummy app called RummyCircle and has over 10 million registered users.
My11Circle has quickly gained popularity amongst fantasy players, thanks to its partnership with the one and only Saurav Ganguly.
Thanks to a ton of advertisements during the IPL season last year, the platform has gained over 1.3 Crore users in such a short span of time.
Even though My11Circle started off their journey with only cricket, fantasy players can also play fantasy football competitions on the app.
Is My11Circle Safe?
My 11 Circle is a reliable, safe, and trusted fantasy app used by millions of people in India. The app, like most trusted companies out there, do its best to protect the player’s dat a and passwords.
The platform claims to have a thorough security program, policies, and control measures.
Is My11Circle legal?
Yes, My11Circle is completely legal and as per the Government rules and regulations. Since My11Circle is a game of “skill” and not a game of “chance“, it is completely legal.
However, if you are using the app from the state of Assam, Orissa, or Telangana, you are prohibited from playing cash contests on My11Circle from any of these states as the law doesn’t allow users of this state to play cash contests on fantasy apps.

How to Play My 11 Circle
My11Circle is a pretty easy app that allows you to pick players you think will perform best in a live match and build your virtual playing 11.
Once the match starts, you gather points based on the player’s actual performance during the match.
The user with the most points at the end of the match wins the competition.
If you play a cash contest (with real money), it goes into a common pool, and each player gets paid based on their ranks. My 11 Circle charges a service fee from every cash contest.
The core of My 11 Circle can be summed in 3 simple steps:
- Select a Match
- Create your My11Circle Team
- Join Free & Cash Contests to win
1. Select a Match
Once you have installed the My 11 Circle app and have made an account, you will be presented with a list of upcoming matches. You can choose any upcoming match of your choice and start creating your Fantasy 11 team.
2. Create your My 11 Circle Team
Once you have selected the match you want to play, it’s time to pick a playing 11 from the two teams.
My 11 Circle provides you with a budget of 100 credits (virtual money) to “buy players for your fantasy team.
You have to make sure to make your team with these 100 credits. Note that you can only pick a maximum of 7 players from one team.
Once you have selected 11 players, on the next screen, you will be prompted to select a Captain and a Vice-Captain of your My11Circle team.
Make sure you pick your captain and vice-captain wisely as the Captain will receive double points (2X) and the Vice-Captain will receive 1.5 X points scored in every match.
Note: You can make any last-minute changes after the toss and can also change the Captain or Vice-Captain before the deadline of the match (before the first ball is bowled in the live match).
3. Join a Contest
Once done creating your team, you can join three types of contests- cash, free, or private contests depending upon your budget.
Note that every cash contest requires an entry-fee to join and play upfront. The prize breakdown for each contest is stated clearly and you can join depending upon your confidence and skill level.
4. Follow the Match
Hit save and relax, it is now time to enjoy the live match! As your players score in the live match, your My11Circle score will keep updating in real-time.
Once the live match is over, your fantasy team’s final score and rank will appear in the Completed tab. Your winning amount will reflect in your account after 4 hours.
