Guyana fast bowler Ronsford Beaton has been ruled out of the upcoming Caribbean Premier League after suffering a stress fracture. Beaton was in the Guyana Amazon Warriors squad.

Beaton came into the limelight after an impressive domestic season during which he took 16 wickets from six matches in the regional four-day competition and another seven wickets in five matches in the Caribbean Twenty20.

He will be replaced by 21-year-old fast bowler Keon Joseph.

"It is unfortunate that we had to lose Beaton to injury as we expected him to play a major role in the team," Roger Harper, coach of the Amazon Warriors, said. "However, we are delighted that we have been able to replace him with a talented player like Keon Joseph, and we are sure he will do a good job."

Joseph, who has represented West Indies in the Under-19 format, recently came to the fore after rocking Jamaica with a four-wicket haul at Providence in April.

"I definitely feel excited that I've been called up to play for the Guyana Amazon Warriors," Joseph said. "I am definitely coming to play and bringing my best."

The CPL begins on July 30 with the first match between Barbados Tridents and St Lucia Zouks. Guyana Amazon Warriors play their first match on July 31 against Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel.

I think is a good idea to come with this cricket league in the Caribbean to improve cricket in the Caribbean.
