These ranks are finalized based on the points accumulated by teams as per the cricketer performance in actual live matches. Let’s understand this better with an example:

Consider the following contest details:

  • Total winnings - ₹3,00,000
  • Contest Size - ₹ 200
  • Winners - ₹ 100
  • Entry Fee - ₹ 2000

Prize break-up:

  • Rank 1: ₹ 1,00,000
  • Rank 2: ₹ 60,000
  • Rank 3: ₹ 20,000
  • Rank 4-10: ₹ 5,000
  • Rank 11-100: ₹ 1,000

Once the joining for a contest is over, the prize break-up is calculated again. This calculation is based on the actual number of teams who joined the contest. These teams will have a fixed rank on the basis of the points accumulated, basis the performance of the selected players.

So, if you participated in the contest and your team achieved a rank between 1-100, you win. The amount corresponding to your rank is your winning amount. The cash prize and rankings are different for different contests. The amount you win will reflect in your account after four hours.
