CPL Trophy

Caribbean Premier League a domestic Caribbean T20 league in West Indies will enter its 9th edition this year. CPL 2021 will commence on 28 August. In this edition, all the matches will take place in St Kitts and Nevis. The sponsor of the competition is Hero MotoCorp. Guyana Amazon Warriors are 5 times runner-up of the competition. They have always appeared in the final but never managed to lift the trophy. Guyana Amazon Warriors have a powerful batting lineup. They might lack a quality performance by bowling attack. Supports of the team will look for Guyana Amazon Warriors live stream.

Guyana Amazon Warriors owner and coach

GAW is the only team that has played finals 5 times. But, they were unable to win any of them. The owner of Guyana Amazon Warriors is Dr. Rajisanghi Ramroop.

Johan Botha, the South African off-spinner will coach the team. Botha has 72 ODI wickets and 37 T20 wickets. His experience in international cricket will be very helpful for the team. Botha was fielding coach for Islamabad United and Karachi Kings in the PSL. He worked in the 2017 and 2020 editions of the tournament. In 2020, he worked as a head coach for Islamabad United. Botha is the head coach for Guyana Amazon Warriors for the last 4 years.

The skipper of the team is Nicholas Pooran. Pooran provides finishing skills in the lower middle order. His glovework and hitting ability make him an impact player. Although Pooran’s form in IPL 2021 was not very impressive he performs in CPL. He might help the team finish on a big total.

Team Analysis

Looking at the team composition, they have a strong batting lineup. The team has the likes of Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, and Shimron Hetmeyer who make an impeccable batting order. Hafeez has a brilliant record in T20 cricket since last year. He has the ability to play in any condition. Hetmeyer has a knack for playing aggressively. He can also play some explosive shots against spin.

A weakness in the team combination is a weakened bowling attack. Especially, the pace department of the team looks fragile. The team does not seem to have a quality pacer who will pick quick wickets. Also, they lack a second quality spinner other than Tahir. A backup quality spinner is important for a winning team. So, they will need to cover this flaw for a strong campaign in the tournament.

Key Players

Guyana Amazon Warriors is a star-studded batting lineup. They have a solid batting lineup. In my opinion, Nicholas Pooran, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, and Imran Tahir. Nicholas Pooran is an explosive Batsman in the lower order. He can thrash any bowler for big hits. Pooran will also be a good wicketkeeping option.

Shoaib Malik

Shoaib Malik, the Pakistani batsman is a reliable middle-order option. He has the ability to pierce gaps in the field. Also, Malik will bring a lot of experience to this team. Also, in the need of the hour, he can bowl. Malik can be a part-time bowler for GAW. So, with his batting excellence and bowling skills, he becomes a key player.

Mohammad Hafeez and Imran Tahir

Mohammad Hafeez has been in terrific form. His record of recent years in T20 is brilliant. Hafeez has the ability to adapt to all conditions. Plus he is also a part-time bowler. Hafeez can bowl a couple of overs for his franchise. Hafeez will be a pivotal player for GAW with his batting.

Imran Tahir will be the most important player. The responsibility of picking wickets will rest on his shoulders. He is the only wicket-taking bowler in this lineup. His bad day on the field can hurt GAW. To achieve success, Tahir’s performance will be key for GAW. The leggie should hit the purple patch for GAW.
