Next to cricket, the most exciting game that people prefer to play en-masse is rummy. It is a game that has been played for ages. Just like how fortunes change every ball in a T20, every move creates an impact in a rummy game. Similar to cricket, skill plays a vital role in classic rummy. While being physically and mentally tough is desirable in cricket, in rummy, you need to work more on mental skills. Good memory, critical thinking ability, and decision-making skills are mandatory in a rummy game online. Just like cricket, in your rummy career, you come across many nerve-wracking contests.

What kind of a batsman are you in Online Rummy?

India’s love for Rummy is a well known one. At the same time, you have a game that is considered a religion in India- Cricket. You could find many playing it every nook and corner of the country. How many ever games we play in the country- Cricket’s popularity is something tough to achieve. Cricket’s dominance in India is happening for decades. You could find millions of youngsters dreaming about representing the country at the global level wearing the blue jersey. In particular there is a craze for Indian batsman in the recent times.
Every cricketer has their own mannerism and style of playing. Here we are going to categorize rummy players based on their gaming style under a few of the country’s best batsmen in recent times. Let’s look into what kind of a cricket player are you in Online Rummy.

1. Virat Kohli


Currently, India’s captain and the best batsman across all three formats of the game. Kohli is someone full of energy and attitude- pumped up anytime in the game. His hunger for runs made people coin him a tagline-“The Run machine”. A player like this is needed when you play in a very challenging condition and while facing a tough opponent. In a Rummy game, a player who moves on like Kohli would have the capacity to win at a long streak. It is going to make winning more difficult for the opponents with a “Champion” player on the table. A rummy player with the same gameplay style will play for a win every time- there would be a thirst to win the game- be it any rummy variant of Indian Rummy- Points, Deals, and Pool Rummy. Be it any kind of game- tournament or a leaderboard- the player would sweat out to own victory to their name.

2. Rohit Sharma


The man is known for big-‘hits’ and big-‘scores’. At the start of the career, he wasn’t so much successful with the bat in the blues. But after getting promoted up the order, he went on to score the highest ODI score in the ODI score (264). He is now considered one of the best openers in modern-day cricket. When it comes to Rummy, a player like the “Hitman” will make it tough for the opponents by finishing the game single-handed in a quick span. A rummy player with the same gameplay style would enjoy winning big at the table and would have the habit of winning huge. When you have the same calibre like Rohit, a rummy player would be “Aggressive” in his own game. It would be a storm in the table for the opponents.

3. MS Dhoni


“Captain Cool”- the perfect tag you can get him. He is the smartest of minds in the cricketing world. He is one of the best of Wicket-Keeping Batsman the game has ever seen. His skill to finish of a high-pressure match is something incredible. He is more of a leader kind both on and off the field. Many inspire to build an inning like Dhoni. He knows how to bat through be it- 30 overs in an ODI as well as three balls in a T20 match. Of course, he is a master in constructing an innings. The quickest of hands in the world has a great legacy under his name. If a Rummy player has the same quality as like MSD, then he/ she must be a “Smart” player. The player must know how to make the smartest of moves in a rummy game, must be capable of holding on the game with the stable control over emotions. He/ She must be cautious about how opponents in the table play the game and must think on a farsighted note.

4. Sachin Tendulkar


“God of Cricket”- The man behind a lot of hard work, success, and struggle- all three made him the master of the game. Scoring 34357 runs and 100 centuries with his bat, Sachin is an idol for every batsman playing cricket. He faced a lot of injuries in his 22 years and 91 days old career. The most loved part of his game is his perfection in every shot he plays. It is a well-accepted fact that no one can perfect a straight drive shot as much as Sachin does it. Not just batting, he had many highlighted performances with the ball as well. A rummy player with the same quality would don the game of Rummy. With the spirit of fighting back, a player can get back into the winning track after a series of losses. Importantly, the individual’s gameplay must be perfect to the core. The player must be strong with rummy techniques and strategies.

Four ways to crack the rummy game

Rummy is an interesting card game that has captured the imagination of millions of users. Of late, the game has seen unprecedented growth thanks to the emerging number of online rummy card game sites. The huge popularity of rummy can be owed to the fact that it is a skill game that is heavily reliant on your brain’s capacity.

rummy card game

If you think luck plays any kind of role in the outcome of the game, then you are grossly mistaken. If luck could help anyone win the game, then chances are such that we only see the same person winning the game every time. That is clearly not the case. It is only through skills, you can win the game.

Here are 4 ways that can help you crack the game.

  1. Play Practice Games

Practice makes a man perfect. That holds true while playing the 13 card rummy game. Only through practice, you get the nuances of the game right. Playing practice rummy card games would improve your mental skills like good observation, better memory, decision making and also would improve your analytical skills so that you make the right move at the right time. The more you play practice rummy games, the better are your chances to win. To ensure every player learns the game well, most rummy sites have a dedicated section called practice tables in their lobby that the user can try out.

  1. Play multiple rummy card game variants

The next step to gain mastery in rummy is to play multiple rummy variants. Popular sites like Deccan Rummy have 3 rummy variants that the players can play and enjoy – Points Rummy, Pool Rummy, and Deals Rummy. Playing these multiple variants on practice tables can help you polish your skills and make you ready to face any kind of challenge. Playing multiple rummy variants would groom you as a better player. Play more free rummy games to test your skills. You can also win some solid real cash prizes if you hit the bull’s eye with your skills.

  1. Play when you are in a good mood

Playing the game when you are in a good mood is very important. Several mental skills like attention, concentration, observation, and mental dexterity should be intact when you are playing the game. Playing on a cheerful mood releases more endorphins in your body, which improves your chances in a rummy table. On the other hand, a gaming session when you are in a bad mood could severely cost you and also could make you lose interest in the game. Always ensure you play the game with a positive attitude.

  1. Play in an authentic rummy site

There are so many rummy sites out there in the market that the user finds it very hard to choose the best one. Also, compounding the problem is the increasing number of offers and promotions these sites lure the rummy enthusiasts with. But what matters really are the safety and security measures implemented in the site. Make sure, the site you play in has integrated these safety measures into their system.

a.)    RNG implementation

b.)    Fairplay Certification

c.)    Safety measures for financial transactions

Fraudulent sites would play a spoilsport on your winning chances
