HEADLINE: Eight Guyanese players amongst Amazon Warriors Retentions 2024-06-06 14:54:38 

The Guyana Amazon Warriors have confirmed the players they have retained ahead of the Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League (CPL) draft. They have nine players confirmed for the 2024 season and they can sign up to five overseas players. The remaining three squad members will be filled at the CPL draft which will take place in July. 

The Amazon Warriors won their maiden CPL title in 2023 and they have retained the core of the team that helped them secure the trophy last year. Guyanese players Shimron Hetmyer, Romario Shepherd, Gudakesh Motie and Keemo Paul will all be part of their home franchise this season.  

The 2023 Player of the Tournament Shai Hope will also be back for this year’s event along with exciting quick bowler Shamar Joseph.

Imagine if CPL decided that Hetmeyer would play for St Lucia, Shepherd would play for the Jamaica franchise, Motie would play for Barbados franchise, and GAW could then choose any remaining Guyanese players.

I wonder how that would go down with Guyanese fans?

but seriously at this rate it would become unsustainable to retain local guys if they continue to do well

I think you’re on to something but we’ll need an IPL Franchise or Celebrity to take over with a purse to lure the best overseas players and the Finals always have to be in Guyana and then we too can “buy”… I mean win 4 Championships twistedtwistedtwisted
