On the other hand, Guyana Amazon Warriors would be aiming to win their first title in the tournament. Nicholas Pooran will be the leader in chief. He had a great outing last year with the bat. He along with Shimron Hetmyer would be the two biggest bets for them in the batting department. Besides, Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik and M Hafeez will add depth to their batting.

As far as the bowling is concerned, Imran Tahir and Naveen Ul-Haq will hold key to the team’s fortune. As compared to the other teams, the Warriors’ bowling looks lean given the lack of prominent names in the squad.
