A very important and powerful franchise in the Caribbean Premier League is the Guyana Amazon Warriors. As the name suggests, this group is amazing. Moreover, this team is the cricket team representing Guyana in the Caribbean Premier League. The team was formed when the league was founded in 2013.

However, the team won its title in the inaugural season. It can be said that they have won the hearts of fans since the very beginning with their excellent performances. Not only that in 2014 they finished second in the group stage behind Barbados Tridents. Hopefully this year too they will come out with a very good team and impress the fans again.
