BGR vs DVE best players and tips for VPL 2021 fantasy team
Top-Tip: Best batsman
Even though it’s too early to predict, BGR’s Keron Cottoy is someone you can put your money on given that he has a strike rate of 178.82 in 11 matches at the venue.
For DVE, Shammon Hooper could be the man of the hour. The batsman averages more than 15 runs per game at the venue and has a strike rate of 136.53. He is a safe pick for your fantasy team.
Top-tip: Best bowlers
The surface of Arnos Vale Ground is expected to assist batsmen more than bowlers in the early part of the season, meaning that you should expect lower returns from the bowlers. For BGR, Kimali Williams can be a decent option given that he averages 0.6 wickets per match at the venue. He has done so while maintaining an excellent economy of 8.35.
Sealron Williams of DVE is a must-have player in your fantasy team given that he averages 1.1 wickets per match at this venue. Not only that, he has managed to keep his economy down to 8.75 in 17 matches.
Top-Tip: Best all-rounder-wicketkeeper
Deron Greaves of DVE is the outright choice among all-rounders considering that he averages more than 20 runs and has a strike rate of 143.75. He tends to pick a wicket in every match and has a decent economy.
There aren’t many options for a wicketkeeper in this match, which means DVE’s Lindon James remains your go-to man. The wicketkeeper-batsman could be a handy option given that he has a strike rate of 149.32.
