THE UNDER-23 CRICKETER IS CONVINCED THAT THE AMAZON WARRIORS CAN WIN THE INAUGURAL LIMACOL CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE, AND HE PLANS TO PLAY A SIGNIFICANT PART IN MAKING THAT HAPPEN.
Trevon Griffith may be the youngest player on the Guyana Amazon Warriors team but what he lacks in years, he definitely makes up for in confidence and fighting spirit. The Under-23 cricketer is convinced that the Amazon Warriors can win the inaugural Limacol Caribbean Premier League, and he plans to play a significant part in making that happen.
For 22-year old Trevon Abashai Griffith, playing in the inaugural Limacol Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament is a chance to put the doubts about his form to rest; in fact, he relishes the challenge.
�I always take delight in representing my country at any level of cricket and because this is the first ever LCPL tournament, it will serve as a major benefit to me as a player�.
With a left arm batting style often described as �pugnacious�, Griffith shot to prominence in 2009 as the top scorer in the TCL Group West Indies Challenge Tournament, amassing 406 runs at an average of 40, even scoring a century against the Leeward Islands on his home ground.
His excitement level is at an all-time high with the knowledge that he will face his idol, Chris Gayle of the Jamaica Tallawahs, on 2 August in Guyana.
�I am definitely coming to play,� said Griffith. �I plan to display my best abilities and make my contribution to the Guyana Amazon Warriors and consequently to the entire league but I�m also hoping to advance my career and entertain fans throughout the Caribbean�.
Griffith has already been getting a lot of attention from both selectors and fans alike, and come 31 July there will be a posse of excited supporters in the stands, there specifically for him when the Amazon Warriors face the T&T Red Steel. His family will be there too.
�My family is always supportive of every step I take in life. They are all incredibly proud that I have been chosen to play in the Limacol CPL and plan to give me a lot of encouragement throughout the tournament.�
No doubt if the Amazon Warriors live up to the high expectations that Griffith has, they will come out victorious in the inaugural Limacol Caribbean Premier League. Matches in Guyana will take place on 31 July and 2 and 4 August.
