Defending champions La Soufriere Hikers (LSH) will look to retain their title when they take on Dark View Explorers (DVE) in the final of Vincy Premier League 2021 on Sunday, May 30, at the Arnos Vale Ground.
The summit clash will be a replay of the Qualifier 1, where batting masterclass from Dillon Douglas, Othneil Lewis, and Atticus Browne guided LSH to a seven-wicket win.
There was nothing to separate these two teams in the group stages. After winning six of their eight league stage matches, DVE finished as the table toppers, while LSH were separated only by an inferior net run rate.
LSH vs DVE Dream11 prediction
Both teams have produced exhilarating displays and have beaten each other once in two games this season. In addition, they have won three of their last five games, meaning we ought to take note of individual brilliance. With that in mind, fantasy cricket players could place safe money on an LSH win because their players have dominated fantasy points.
LSH vs DVE best players for Dream11 fantasy cricket team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
Desron Maloney of LSH should be your ideal pick as far as batters are concerned. The opener is averaging a little more than 32 points per game. And while his current form has been a concern, you can expect him to step up in the final.
For DVE, Romano Pierre is a must-have player. Coming off an unbeaten 65 against Fort Charlotte Strikers, the DVE batsman is tipped to build on his 425 fantasy points accumulated this season.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
LSH’s Othneil Lewis is an outright choice for a bowler. The 23-year-old has picked wickets at will, and his contribution with the bat means he is averaging more than 60 points per game. He has scored 548 fantasy points this season.
If there is anyone who can counter Lewis from DVE, Rayan Williams should be your man. The bowler has scored at least 70 fantasy points in three of his last five outings, meaning that he has been one of the most picked players so far.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
There’s absolutely no shortage of all-rounders in his fixture, but no one comes close to LSH’s Dillon Douglas. The top-order batsman, who picked three wickets the last time he faced DVE, has averaged 78 fantasy points per game. He may be a tad bit expensive in the market, but he is worth your money.
Among wicketkeepers, Salvan Brown of LSH could be a safe pick. The 39-year-old averages 29 points per game and is the safest bet to make.
