Strikers expected to extend winning run against Breakers- get VPL 2021 tips and predictions
High-flying Vincy Premier League side Fort Charlotte Strikers (FCS) will take on Salt Pond Breakers (SPB) in the 26th match of the tournament on Friday, May 28, at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown.
The Strikers sit third in the table with 12 points, joint with table toppers Dark View Explorers and La Soufriere Hikers. However, their inferior net run rate of 0.813 means they need a big win to move further up in the standings.
The Breakers, on the other hand, have struggled for form this season, winning just three of their eight games. They sit fourth with six points and have a net run rate of 0.468.
FCS vs SPB Dream11 prediction
Strikers' brilliant winning run means that they are the outright favourites to win the match against Breakers. While the Breakers have won just once in their last five matches, the Strikers go into this fixture with four wins on the trot.
FCS vs SPB best players for Vincy Premier League fantasy team
Top Tip: Best Batsmen
SPB captain Sunil Ambris has been single-handedly carrying his side this season so far. SPB won the last match because of his opening knock of 64 runs from 34 balls, which included six boundaries and five sixes. He has 652 fantasy points to his name so far.
FCS opener Miles Bascombe was in terrific form in the last match as well, where he scored 69 runs off 29 balls by hitting three boundaries and eight sixes. His rich vein of form is expected to continue in the next match as well with the hard-hitter tipped to build on his 382 fantasy points tally.
Top Tip: Best Bowlers
Delorn Johnson was the most economical bowler for SPB last time. He returned with one wicket but conceded just eight runs in two overs. The 32-year-old is returning to form gradually and now is a good time to bank on him.
Despite going wicketless, Shaquille Browne's economy rate of 7 was the main reason GRD couldn't chase down FCS' target of 128 runs. Browne has two wickets in four matches so far, and has 186 fantasy points.
Top-Tip: Best all-rounder, wicketkeeper
Denson Hoyte has been a handy option for FCS with the ball as well as with the bat in the lower order. The last match saw Hoyte picking up a wicket apart from making nine runs in four balls to take FCS' total to over 100 runs. He can be a decent option going into this fixture.
Casmus Hackshaw hasn't been among the runs in the last two games, but the wicket-keeper cum batsman's ability to hit big coming down the order cannot be overlooked. He has 75 runs in the last five matches and 209 fantasy points. Hackshaw remains a steady option for most VPL 2021 fantasy cricket team owners.
