The Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) will head into the final four of the eighth Caribbean Premier League (CPL) on a high once again as they seek out a historic maiden triumph in the regional franchise tournament after losing five finals, including last year’s ultimate matchup against Barbados Tridents.
Although, the highly rated Trinbago Knight Riders lead the points table with 16 after maintaining a perfect record from their 8 round-robin matches played so far, the second place Warriors (12 points); having played their full quota of 10 games, boast incredible figures.
Most notably are Shimron Hetmyer who is the tournament’s current top run-scorer with 267 runs, Imran Tahir; highest wicket taker with 15 scalps, while Nicholas Pooran’s 45-ball 100 against St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots is the highest individual score.
Breakout star, Kevin Sinclair, in his four matches played, has the best economy rate in this year’s tournament so far with a miserly economy rate of 4.36.
The GAW have also scored the most runs of 1147 and taken the most wickets (67).
The Warriors will know who they will face in the semifinals this Tuesday at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy (BLCA) following the final round robin matches over the weekend.
Today’s fixtures see Trinbago taking on St. Lucia Zouks (10 points from eight games) from 10:00hrs at the BLCA in the first match of a double header. The feature match will be contested between Jamaica Tallawahs and Barbados Tridents that stand no chance of making it to the final four.
