The Guyana Amazon Warriors have appointed Chris Green as their captain for the 2020 season. The Australian off-spinning all-rounder is back with the Amazon Warriors for the third year, having first played for the Franchise in 2018. He has taken 23 wickets at an average of 22 in his 23 matches for the team.
Green stood in as captain during the 2018 season so this will be his second spell in charge of the Amazon Warriors. A firm fan favourite, Green was part of the Guyana team who finished as runners-up at the Hero CPL in both the 2018 and 2019 seasons and he will be hoping he can lead the team to their first title in 2020.
Chris Green said: “I am hugely excited to be back with the Amazon Warriors for another season and honoured to be leading them for this season. Guyana is somewhere I am hugely fond of and we are very confident that this is the year that we can win the Hero CPL title for our amazing fans back home.”

Ross Taylor is expected to fill the void created by the withdrawal of CPL veteran Shoaib Malik
who is currently on tour with Pakistan in the UK. With last season's breakout star Brandon King at the top
followed by the power-hitting pair of Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer in the middle order,
Taylor said that his role this season would be to draw on his experience and anchor the innings.
"Shoaib Malik has got a fantastic record, especially in Twenty20 and especially for Guyana as well,"
"I think he has got that anchor role - and a role that I'll be looking to do as well. Hetmyer and Pooran…
I've played with him [Pooran] before; they are not just exciting players in West Indies cricket, but in the world as well
I'm looking forward to see how they go and grow.
It's an exciting team to play for and every time I played against Guyana in the past
they've always been tough competitors."
