PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):

Coach of St Lucia Zouks, Stuart Williams, says he is banking heavily on team effort as his franchise prepares to launch its campaign in the fourth edition of the HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) today.

Like the five other franchises in the tournament, the Zouks are lined with a number of international stars, as well as some of the leading players in the region.

"I don't want to single out anyone," said Williams. "(I am) expecting a lot out of the team to include Shane Watson, Michael Hussey, better known as Mr Cricket, David Miller and Morne Morkel. (I am) also looking forward to great play from Johnson Charles and AndrÈ Fletcher."

Zouks' preparations for the CPL included a four-day camp.

Williams, a former West Indies opening batsman, says he is confident Zouks will advance to the next stage of the CPL this year.

"The intention is to take one match at a time," said Williams. "The Zouks has the best players. With Mr Cricket Michael Hussey and Darren Sammy, fans can expect some exciting matches. I'm also looking to the Zouks to keep moving forward."
