JIMMY NEESHAM REPLACES COREY ANDERSON FOR THE LIMACOL CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE

New Zealand’s rising star, Jimmy Neesham, will replace fellow Kiwi, Corey Anderson, as one of the International players for the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Anderson was asked to withdraw from the tournament by Black Caps officials, after they expressed concern regarding injury issues. All-rounder, Neesham, who played for Delhi Daredevils in this year's IPL, has already put in several impressive displays during the recent test series between New Zealand and West Indies, which have caught the eye of the Guyana Amazon Warriors management.

I’ve really enjoyed my time in the Caribbean and can’t wait to experience the famous CPL atmosphere when the tournament begins next week.”

Roger Harper, Guyana Amazon Warriors coach, commented; “We could not have asked for a better replacement for Corey. Jimmy is a great fit for the Amazon Warriors, and we look forward to seeing the excellent form he displayed in the recent test series continuing in the CPL.”

Omar Khan, Franchise Operations Manager for Guyana Amazon Warriors, added; “There were several big name players knocking on the door to replace Corey, which demonstrates the popularity of the Limacol CPL within the cricketing community. We’re delighted to have secured Jimmy’s services, and are sure he will carry his superb recent form into the Biggest Party in Sport.”

The Limacol Caribbean Premier League returns on July 11th when the Guyana Amazon Warriors will take on the Antigua Hawksbills at the National Cricket Stadium, Grenada in the opening game of the tournament.
