Azam replaces Lynn
in Warriors line-up
GEORGETOWN---Promising Pakistan stroke-maker
Babar Azam has been named to replace injured Aus-
tralian batsman Chris Lynn in the Guyana Amazon
Warriors squad for the upcoming Caribbean Premier
League which bowls off next month.
The 22-year-old right-hander has been success-
ful across all formats, scoring consistently since his
international debut two years ago.
Head coach Roger Harper said Azam would be the
ideal replacement for Lynn, who was expected to be
a key figure in the franchise's title bid.
"We are hugely disappointed to lose the talent
of Chris Lynn to shoulder injury, he was the leading
scorer last year and we were happy to have him
back," Harper said.
"However, we are extremely delighted in getting
a world-class replacement in Babar Azam. He is one
of the most exciting batsmen in the world and we
are sure that he will be a huge success for us at
Hero CPL 2017."
Azam averages 50 in both the Twenty20 and One-
Day Inernational formats, where he has become a
prized asset for Pakistan.
He came to the fore in earnest last year when he
struck hundreds each game of a three-match series
against West Indies in United Arab Emirates.
Last April, he struck another hundred against West
Indies in the second ODI here at the National Stadium
at Providence. CMC
look for first win
T&T Under-15 cricketers will be looking for a win
today, after their first round loss in the 2017 CWI
Regional U-15 cricket tournament.
The defending champions chasing 121 runs to win
its match against Jamaica fell for just 73 and as a
result will need to win all its remaining contests to
stand any chance of holding on to its title.
Today, they come up against a struggling Guyana
outfit at Lucas Street in Bridgetown Barbados. The
Guyanese made just 51 runs in their opening match
against the Leeward Islands in the first round.
Also on show today are hosts Barbados, which
will play the Leewards at the Three Ws Oval. The
Barbadians recorded an opening round win against
the Windwards at Weymouth, recovering from 26
for six, to get a target of 104. The last game on the
cards will pit Jamaica against Windwards at Crab Hill.
In the first round runs were at a premium and all
teams will be looking for a better showing with the
bat. The highest score was 120 made by Jamaica
against T&T, while the lowest score recorded was
51 by the Guyanese.

first match. Set 288 runs for victory, the
Windwards fell to spinners Justin Gangoo

among the Red Force players. Bidaisee who
nabbed four wickets for 29 runs in the first
essay, came back to take 4/69 in the second,
for match figures of 8/98. In addition to his
wonderful bowling he scored 39 runs in his
team's second innings, taking them over the
