Guyana Amazon Warriors is one of the prominent cricket franchises of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 session. The team was formed in the year 2013 in order to participate in the CPL T20 tournament. The Amazon Warriors of Guyana are centered in Providence, Georgetown. The Warriors' home cricket events are played at Providence Stadium. Dr. Ranjisingh 'Bobby' is the owner of the franchise. The majority of the Guyana Amazon's players come from West Indies local teams. It has reached the finals of five of the seven CPL tournaments but has lost all five times. Roger Harper, a former Guyanese cricket icon, was named the franchise's first coach in early February 2015.
Nicholas Pooran is the captain of the Guyana Amazon Warriors under the coaching guidance of Johan Botha. Rayon Griffith will assist John Botha as an assistant coach in the league. Lendl Simmons is the highest scorer of the team till now and Sohail Tanvir is the leading wicket-taker.
The Guyana Amazon Warriors have signed some major names to their side ahead of CPL 2021, hoping to end their title streak. Shoaib Malik, a renowned Pakistani all-rounder, signed with the Warriors before the Draft, while his teammate Mohammed Hafeez was selected at the CPL 2021 Draft by the Guyana-based team. In eight seasons, the Guyana Amazon Warriors have reached the final five times. In all of their games, though, they have lost the final clash.
By acquiring Shoaib Malik and Mohammed Hafeez, the team's administration has attempted to add experience to the group.
Waqar Salamkheil, an Afghan wrist-spin bowler, was also introduced to the Warriors' lineup.
They kept 11 players before the drafting, leaving only a few slots open in the Guyana squad. When the club chose to release CPL 2020 captain Chris Green, it raised a few eyebrows. The Australian spinner was effective both as a leader and as a player. The Guyana team management, on the other hand, will now choose a new skipper for the CPL 2021 season.
This team's batting order appears to be in place. Imran Tahir and Waqar Salamkheil, two wrist-spinners, are expected to challenge the opponent hitters, although Guyana's pace attack does not appear to be as powerful. In CPL 2021, it will be fascinating to observe how their pacers do.
On that point, let's take a closer look at the Guyana Amazon Warriors' whole team for CPL 2021.
