Botanical Gardens Rangers look to turn tables on Fort Charlotte Strikers - get tips and predictions
Fort Charlotte Strikers (FCS) lock horns with Botanical Gardens Rangers (BGR) in a bid to dominate them once again in the 15th match of the Vincy Premier League 2021 at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown.
FCS have played a total of four matches so far with an equal number of wins and losses. In their previous outing against BGR, they emerged victorious by 24 runs.
BGR, at the moment, are at the bottom of the table with four consecutive losses and a possible chance of revival looking bleak. They have also registered the lowest score of the tournament so far, succumbing to 26 all out against Dark View Explorers (DVE) in the second match of the VPL T10.
FCS vs BGR Dream11 prediction
The contest seems heavily tilted in the favour of FCS considering the previous result between the two sides and BGR's poor form. Strong on paper and on the field as well, FCS may very well sweep this one.
FCS vs BGR best players for fantasy cricket team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
For FCS, attacking opener and skipper Miles Bascombe is the one to go after for the fantasy team owners. He scored a quick 30 at the top versus Dark View Explorers, his highest score so far in the torunament.
Wayne Harper is the man in form for BGR. His last two knocks of 28 and 33* have come at a strike rate in excess of 150 and that remains a big threat for the opposition to contain him. He is easily a top pick in any fantasy side.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
Ray Jordan is the bowler to watch out for in FCS due to his form and experience. He has struck at crucial intervals this season and has played 23 matches at the venue in the last two years with an overall economy rate of 6.97.
For BGR, Zemron Providence has been the go-to bowler this season, having accounted for four wickets in three matches already. His economy rate of just 4.83 has played a major role in putting pressure on the opposition.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
FCS’s Kirton Lavia is an all-rounder in good touch. He is coming on the back of a match-winning performance of 15 runs and two wickets against Salt Pond Breakers on Wednesday and would want to build up on that.
Wayne Harper, the BGR wicket-keeper is a top pick behind the stumps. His attacking instincts at the top of the order combined with excellent glovework is the reason he is considered by the majority of fantasy team owners.
FCS vs BGR probable playing XI
FCS probable playing XI: Miles Bascombe (captain), Casmus Hackshaw (wicket-keeper), Gidron Pope, Sealroy Williams, Kirton Lavia, Kevin Peters, Ray Jordan, Shaquille Brown, Rasheed Fredericks, Geron Whyllie, Nigel Small
BGR probable playing XI: Jaheil Walters, Mcleon Williams, Wayne Harper (wicket-keeper), Kesrick Williams (captain), Urnel Thomas, Donald Delpleche, Jordan Samuel, Winston Samuel, Dorson Cottle, Kimali Williams, Zemron Providence
