The Guyana squad will be engaged in a four-day warm-up match today against a Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Reserve team at the Guyana National stadium, starting at 10:00 hours.

Prior to this warm-up match, the players on the squad who were not a part of the Super50 squad, were encamped from February 5-7 which gave the selectors an opportunity to assess their fitness.

The team will depart these shores on February 25 for Jamaica where they will take on the defending champions Barbados in the first round on February 28.
