**Points for Good Strike Rate for Batsmen**

The batsman’s Strike Rate is also worth points in Dream 11. But don’t forget that if your chosen batsman has a low strike rate for the match, you could lose points as well. The player who is in the squad as a specialist bowler does not receive strike rate points.

**Points for good Economy Rates for Bowlers**

Bowler’s economy rates are taken into account for the scoring system in the same way that strike rate is. Bowlers with a good economy earn more points, while those with a poor economy lose points. Only when a bowler has bowled at least two overs, the economy rate is taken into account for Dream11 points.

- If his economy rate is between 10 and 11 runs per over, you will lose two points.
- If his economy rate is between 11.01 and 12 runs per over, you lose a point.
