Berbician Junior Sinclair, among nine players retained by the Guyana Amazon Warriors for the Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League (RBCPL) 2023 which commences on August 16, has told this publication in an invited comment that he is thankful to the Warriors’ management, and wants to perform well for the team.
Sinclair played eight matches last season, and was among the standout Emerging Players in the tournament, having claimed five wickets at a solid economy rate of 7.31. The experience he gained was invaluable, and he wants to again deliver for the team.
Moments after the retention list was made public, Sinclair declared himself hungry to succeed. “I am very happy to be retained for the Warriors this year. I just want to thank the management for retaining me in the 2023 season. I am looking forward for an even better year this year. Hopefully, I can play a major part of the success in this team this year,” Sinclair has said.
The RBCPL 2023 tournament will be played across five venues, each hosting six matches. The first six league-stage matches will take place at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, while the next six matches will be hosted at Warner Park in St. Kitts. Barbados and Trinidad will each host the next six matches, and the last six league-stage matches will be held in Guyana. The playoffs, including the Eliminator, Qualifier 1, Qualifier 2 and the grand finale, will also be hosted by Guyana.
The RBCPL 2023 season opener will see hosts Saint Lucia Kings taking on the defending champions Jamaica Tallawahs at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground.
The summit clash is scheduled to be held at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on September 24. That match promises to be an exciting affair, as the two best teams in the tournament would engage in battle for the ultimate prize.
Overall, RBCPL 2023 is set to be an unforgettable tournament, with plenty of action, drama, and memorable moments for cricket fans around the world to cherish.
The full squads for the CPL will be announced at the end of June, at the CPL Draft, which will be broadcasted.
