The much anticipated Caribbean Pre-
mier League (CPL) T20 tournament bowls
off today with the opening match fea-
turing Antigua Hawksbills and last year s
runners-up Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Billed the greatest show in sport', fans
in Grenada are very excited about the tour-
nament and a full house is expected for
the opening clash which gets underway at
2 pm at the Grenada National Cricket Sta-
Yesterday, the players from the Amazon
Warriors and the Hawksbills had their final
knock up in inclement weather. They will
be hoping for better weather when the
cricket bowls off later today.
Head coach of the Amazon Warriors,
Roger Harper is confident.
"I am truly delighted to be back again.
Last season I would say was a success for
us, we topped the group stages and then
finished second, so now we see the areas
we need to work on in order to improve,"
Harper (who coached the West Indies
during the 2003 Cricket World Cup in
South Africa), also said he is more than
happy with his 15-man squad for the 2014
He said: "We have seven Guyanese play-
ers in our team, in addition to a few new
players like New Zealander, Corey Ander-
son, who is making his name on the
international cricket stage, and Navin
Stewart from Trinidad and Tobago who
is a solid all-rounder."
While he is disappointed not to have
one of the Warriors' most influential
players from last season, James Franklin,
he feels his team is one to be reckoned
"James Franklin delivered the x-factor
last season and I am very disappointed
not to have him back. I do however believe
that we have a squad capable of giving
any team a hard time," said Harper.
Red Steel pumped and ready
T&T's Red Steel is keen and ready to
go into action against the Barbados Tri-
dents tomorrow. The local boys will open
their campaign at the Grenada National
Cricket Stadium at 10.30 am and every-
thing, according to manager Colin Borde,
is in place.
"It rained all day today, so the boys
were basically inactive. However, tomor-
row we have a session at the match venue
carded for 8.30 am. We are hoping that
the weather holds because we need to
get in some time out there, to fine tune
before we take the field on Saturday,"
"We are as confident as can be, we
have prepared well and the foreign guys
have settled in nicely. The team spirit,
which is so important is great as you
would expect with Dwayne Bravo around.
"At the end of the day this tournament
is going to be very competitive because
the talent is nicely shared around. In the
end the team that wants it the most will
be the one to take the crown."
