CPL Finals sees Guyana Amazon Warriors take on the Barbados Tridents on Saturday at Warner Park
Kieron Pollard’s Barbados Tridents will take on Denesh Ramdin and his Guyana Amazon Warriors on Saturday in a match that will see two form teams square off to be crowned the Limacol Caribbean Premier League champions.
The big-hitting Tridents will be looking to replicate their group stage form and make the most of their week-long preparation as they come up against a confident Warriors team fresh from their dominant display in the semi-final against the Jamaica Tallawahs.
Barbados Tridents captain, Kieron Pollard, said; “The Warriors played very well last night, but I am not worried. We will do our preparation and get ourselves ready for playing them, but we are going to concentrate on our strengths rather than worry too much about theirs.”
He continues; “They beat us at home a few weeks ago, so we know we will have to bring our ‘A-Game’ on Saturday to win. They do have dangerous bowlers in the form of Narine and Santokie, however, when the bad ball comes, we will look to capitalise on it and it should be an exciting match.”
Guyana Amazon Warriors captain, Denesh Ramdin, said; “After last night’s game, the players who did not get a chance to bat yesterday will be working hard in the nets today so we are all fully prepared for tomorrow’s final. Santokie and Narine have been bowling well so we will also be looking for them to carry their good form into tomorrow’s match.”
Barbados Tridents coach, Robin Singh, said; “Preparations have been good this week and we have welcomed the break after playing so many games in quick succession at the end of the group stages. We have some players who have done really well throughout the tournament such as Jason Holder and Kieron Pollard, but we will be looking to prepare all of our players to be their best in the final.”
On being asked how they will try to do things differently from last year’s final, where they lost in the last over, Guyana Amazon Warriors coach, Roger Harper, said; “This time around we will be looking to produce our best cricket when it counts. We will not necessarily be looking to do anything different to what we have done previously in the tournament, but we will think about the Barbados Tridents today and fine tune our plans so we are ready for tomorrow.”
The Limacol Caribbean Premier League will take place on Saturday 16th August at 4pm (ECT) at Warner Park, St. Kitts.
