DVE vs GRD best players for Vincy Premier League fantasy team
Top Tip: Best Batsmen
Shammon Hooper will be the best bet with the bat from the DVE camp. The middle order batsman came first down to score a 27-ball 59 in his last game against La Soufriere Hikers and is currently the man in form with 514 fantasy points to his name.
Divers' skipper Asif Hooper is surely the man to watch out for at the moment. The last match saw him scoring 34 runs in 18 balls where he hit three boundaries and two sixes. Hooper has tallied 122 runs in the last five matches to garner 316 fantasy points so far.
Top Tip: Best Bowlers
DVE’s Rayan Williams was surprisingly good with the ball against LSH last match. The 21-year-old took two wickets and conceded only 16 runs during his quota of two overs as the Hikers were restricted to 95 runs.
Razine Browne was one of the best bowlers for GRD in their last game. He took a wicket and conceded just 15 runs in the two overs of his last match against FCS. Browne has taken four wickets for GRD so far, garnering 163 fantasy points
Top-Tip: Best all-rounder, wicketkeeper
Though not the most prolific of options with the bat, DVE skipper Lindon James has consistently fetched points so far, averaging over 24 a game. For lack of a better wicket-keeping option from both teams, James should be a must-have in this fixture.
Shammon Hooper was one of the best bowlers for DVE as well, taking two wickets and conceding 14 runs against LSH to garner a whopping 150 points in the last match itself. He is easily the best all-rounder from both teams.
DVE vs GRD probable playing XI
DVE probable XI: D Greaves, R Pierre, S Hopper, D Browne, L James (captain) (wicket-keeper), R Williams, K Horne, Drumi Toney, J Matthews, S Williams, L Wison
GRD probable XI: A Hooper (captain), R Grant, T Harry (wicket-keeper), K Nedd, S Browne, R Richards, K Abraham, R Browne, D Barnum, K Dalzell, B Browne
