By Author CPL

The 2015 Cricket World Cup is in full swing Down Under, with a host of Caribbean Premier League stars representing their countries on the global stage in Australia and New Zealand. 

But almost a week into the competition, how are our CPL boys faring? In the first of a weekly series, we take a look at who's hot and who's not...

BARBADOS TRIDENTS

The reigning CPL champions haven't set the World Cup on fire just yet - West Indies' young captain Jason Holder took 0-44 from his 9 overs in their defeat at the hands of Ireland, while Dwayne Smith scored 18 opening the innings.

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

Lendl Simmons was the West Indies' star performer against Ireland, helping them to recover from 87-5 to 304-7 courtesy of a brilliant 102 off only 84 balls, with 9x4 and 5x6. Denesh Ramdin fared less well with 1 but took two catches behind the stumps. The Warriors' Sri Lankans also struggled in their defeat at the hands of New Zealand as Lasith Malinga's 10 overs ended with 0-84 and Tillakaratne Dilshan took 0-35 from 5 and scored 24 from 41 balls.

JAMAICA TALLAWAHS

The veteran Kiwi Daniel Vettori was the the stand-out performer, the 36-year-old taking 2-34 from 10 overs as New Zealand got off to a winning start, including taking the wicket of his Tallawahs' team-mate Mahela Jayawardene for 0. The three West Indies players had mixed days, with Chris Gayle hitting 36 off 65 and Andre Russell 27 not out from 13 before taking 0-33 from 6, while Jerome Taylor took wickets but proved expensive, ending with 3-71 from 8.5 overs.
