Guyana Amazon Warriors will try to compensate for last year’s heartbreak when they clash with a buoyant Barbados Tridents in the final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) on Saturday.

The two teams took contrasting paths to the final — Amazon Warriors battling through the playoffs and Tridents booking a direct spot — but this will account for little when they pit their strengths against each other in the summit clash at Warner Park, reports CMC. Amazon Warriors, in particular, will be highly motivated, especially against the backdrop of their loss in the final of the inaugural tournament to Jamaica Tallawahs.

They have already remedied this in part by beating Tallawahs in Thursday’s second playoff but a win in the final will put the finishing touches on an impressive campaign. Amazon Warriors coach Roger Harper is mindful of not repeating the mistakes of last year, which saw them falter in Port of Spain. “This time around we will be looking to produce our best cricket when it counts,” he stressed. “We will not necessarily be looking to do anything different to what we have done previously in the tournament.”, reports IANS.
