New Zealand batsman James Neesham has replaced all-rounder Corey Anderson in the Guyana Amazon Warriors squad for the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), which gets underway on July 11.
Anderson has been asked to return to New Zealand due to concerns over his fitness.
“I’m very excited to be extending my time in the Caribbean and joining up with the Guyana Amazon Warriors,” Neesham said. “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.”
Guyana Amazon Warriors head coach Roger Harper added: “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.”
