The Guyana Amazon Warriors will commence preparations for the 2016 Caribbean Premier League on June 20. The team which will be led by New Zealand’s Martin Guptill will be encamped for one week and will engage a
Guyana XI in several practices matches at the National Stadium.
In addressing the media yesterday at the new CPL local office at Camp and Quamina Streets, Warriors Manager Omar Khan indicated the Guyanese U-19 World Cup winners Keemo Paul and Tevin Imlach as well as Akshaya Persaud will be part of the camp and said support from the home fans will be vital for the team campaign.
The Warriors lineup includes Australian leg spinner Adam Zampa and batsman Chris Lynn, Pakistani pacer Sohail Tanvir, Dwayne Smith, Chris Barnwell and victorious West Indies U19 World Cup winning Captain, Shimron Hetmyer.
Khan said that the tournament has created much hype in Asia and England and as such it is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Guyana. “Owners of IPL franchises in India who are also owners of several CPL teams have requested that the games be held at certain times so as to get an audience there. So this is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Guyana,” he said. Khan indicated that they are also selling CPL merchandise for the fans at the office.
He explained that they will be opening a ticket booth in Berbice and are looking at the possibility of another in Essequibo. Guyana will face Jamaica Tallawahs on July 7 (19:00hrs), St. Kitts Patriots on July 9 (12:00hrs), Trinbago Knight Riders on July 10 (19:00hrs) and St. Lucia Zouks on July 12 (19:00hrs) at Providence.
