GRD vs LSH best players for VPL 2021 fantasy cricket team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
For GRD, Asif Hooper is a top pick for any VPL fantasy cricket team. He was the highest run-scorer for his side in the 2020 edition with 251 runs in 10 matches with a brilliant strike rate of 152.12.
LSH captain and opener Desron Maloney is the player to watch out for. He scored a quickfire 19 in the first match and would be hoping to carry on his explosive form in the next matches too.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
Obed McCoy was the pick of the bowlers last season for GRD. In 10 matches, he scalped eight wickets with an economy of just under eight. This season could be even better if he carries the same form and is a definite pick for the fantasy teams.
Kemron Strough has had a dream start to the tournament for LSH picking up three wickets in his first match and sending a warning to the opposition batsmen. He qualifies as a sure-shot fantasy pick and the one to watch out for.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Asif Hooper from GRD makes it as a top all-rounder in any fantasy team, leading his side in both the run-scoring and wickets charts. Not only did he score 251 runs, but he also took 11 wickets and his skills could very well be appreciated by the fantasy team owners.
Anson Latchman has been extremely brilliant behind the stumps for GRD in the 2020 edition. His five dismissals in as many matches took him to the top of the list and could be an easy pick for the fantasy lovers.
