CPL 2021: Sinclair adding variety to reap further success
In five matches last season, off-spinner Kevin Sinclair was Guyana Amazon Warriors’ most economical bowler, going at less than five per over, to go along with five wickets.
Recognising batsmen will come with plans to counter him this season, Sinclair said he has added some variety.
The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) starts August 26 in St. Kitts and Nevis, and Sinclair is expected to play a key role in this year’s campaign.
“I really feel good to be a part of this team again. Last year I learnt a lot and I eventually merged into the West Indies team so it is good to be back with the home franchise,” said the player who made his Twenty20 International debut this March and has played six matches to date.
Given his success in 2020 and wanting to cement a spot in West Indies squad for the World T20 in October-November, Sinclair said he is conscious of the need to improve.
“I don’t really set too many goals, I just go out and play to my ability,” he related to the News Room Sport.
“I know this year it is going to be tough because last year, people had a look at me and saw what I do with the ball in the Powerplay, so I think I have to add some variety to go with what I had last year, and I think I should be good. I am not looking to change much so I should be well.”
With fellow off-spinner and former captain, Chris Green, moving to Jamaica Tallawahs, Sinclair said he is looking forward to absorbing the knowledge on offer.
“I (am) just looking to learn from every one of the players, not go to just one player, since each and every one will have a different view.”
Every CPL, the one question Warriors fans ask is whether the franchise can lift the title. Sinclair’s response this time is just to keep supporting.
“Just keep supporting us; I know it has been heart-breaking over the years, but just keep supporting us and you will get the best. This year, I know all of the guys are eager to go and perform for you guys.”
