One of the fastest sports in the world, handball is a 60-minute, 7-a-side, sport where each team has to score goals to win. Imagine football, but played with hands instead!
While the concept of handball and football is similar (score more goals to win), there are some key differences between the two sports.
Outfield players can touch the ball with any part of their body above the knee. If the ball touches the foot of any player (other than the goalkeeper), possession is awarded to the opposition
If a player has possession, they can dribble or take three steps for up to three seconds without dribbling
If a player stands still without passing the ball for more than 3 seconds, possession is awarded to the opposition
Only the goalkeeper is allowed to come into contact with the floor of the goal area
Goalkeepers are allowed out of the goal area but must not retain possession if they are outside the goal area
Other than a yellow card and red card, a player can also be suspended in handball and has to sit out of the game for 2 minutes
There are unlimited rotating substitutes in handball, but only 7 players per team can be on the field at any given point
Creating your team
Every Handball team you create on Dream11 has to have 7 players, of which a maximum of 5 players can be from any one team playing the real-life match.
Your Dream11 can have different combinations of players, but has to be within the 100 credit cap and must qualify the following team selection criteria:
Captain and Vice-Captain Points
Once you have selected your 7 players, you will have to assign a captain and vice-captain for your team.
The captain will give you 2x points scored by them in the actual match.
The vice-captain will give you 1.5x points scored by them in the actual match.
The Captained By (% C By) and Vice-Captained By
(% VC By) stats help you understand how other players have
chosen their teams.
Choose a popular pick as captain, or find a differential to
score big against your competition.

Other Important Points
Any event during penalty shootouts will not be considered for awarding points.
A player who has been transferred from one team to the other might still be available for selection for his older team until the next scheduled team update on Dream11. However, no points will be attributed to the player in such a situation.
Data is provided by reliable sources and once the match has been marked as completed i.e., winners have been declared, no further adjustments will be made. Points awarded live in-game are subject to change as long as the match status is ‘In progress’ or ‘Waiting for review’.
Any event during extra time will be considered for awarding points
If a player gets 2 ejections, he/she will get a total of -4 points (-2 points for each ejection).
A player gets a red card after 3 ejections. In this case, he/she will get a total of -7 points (-3 points for the red card and -4 points for 2 ejections).
