and middle order batsman Chanderpaul Hemraj are reportedly injured and have been forced  out of the team to play Trinidad.

The Guyana team is  without a win in this year’s competition but will be looking to end the competition on a high.

According to reports,  the two players Permaul and Hemraj have contracted chicken pox. They will be replaced by former West Indies  leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo and batsman Vishal `Cheesy’  Singh who scored a half century in an earlier match of the competition before being dropped.

Guyana have lost four of their five matches and drawn one against the Windward Islands.

They play front runners Trinidad and Tobago at  the Providence National Stadium today.

Guyana: Leon Johnson (Captain), Assad Fudadin, Amir Khan, Trevon Griffith, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Zaheer Mohamed, Ronsford Beaton, Anthony Bramble, Devendra Bishoo, Shimron Hetmyer, Raun Johnson, Keon Joseph, Vishaul Singh.
