The “biggest party in sport,” as the Caribbean Premier League T20 franchise cricket tournament calls itself, continues on Sunday as the first-place Guyana Amazon Warriors look to keep their undefeated streak alive as they take on the final team to make its 2018 CPL debut in the Barbados Tridents, as the sixth edition of the colorful West Indies-based competition, as the Caribbean news site Loop reports, moves into its second week with a match that will live stream from Guyana.
The Tridents missed the playoffs in last year’s CPL, winning only four matches. But a new-look squad captained by West Indies Test skipper Jason Holder will attempt to knock the 2-0 Guyana side off its perch atop the CPL table. Mixed in with a squad of young Caribbean players will be a star-studded international contingent including Australia’s Steve Smith, South African Hashim Amla, New Zealander Martin Guptill, and the Windies own heavy hitter Dwayne Smith.
“The mood in the camp is pretty good we have several outstanding overseas players who have joined with the talented regional cricketers in the team. I think we have a well-balanced side, I don’t want to single out players, we have a team that is quite capable of doing the job for us,” the 26-year-old Holder — himself a native of Barbados — told Barbados Today on Saturday.
