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.
Jimmy Neesham said; “I’m very excited to be extending my time in the Caribbean and joining up with the Guyana Amazon Warriors. I loved watching last year’s tournament, and this time I can’t wait to get involved on the pitch. 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.
