Get DVE vs FCS best players for Vincy Premier League fantasy team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
Romano Pierre will be expected to be at his destructive best like the last time DVE took on FCS. Whacking 44 runs off 22 balls, Pierre had hit four boundaries and four sixes to help his side post a winnable total of 95 runs. The opener has 319 fantasy points so far.
Miles Bascombe will be the man to watch out for, from the FCS camp. The opener had started strongly against DVE in their last encounter, hitting 30 runs off 24 balls. After his dismissal, no batsman could steady FCS' ship last time and the batsman will hope to bat longer this time. The 35-year-old has 437 fantasy points.
