In the final showdown of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023, the Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) showcased their dominance as they crushed the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) by nine wickets to clinch their maiden CPL title.

Winning the toss and opting to bowl, the Guyana side put in a stellar performance with the ball, restricting their opponents to a mere 94 runs in 18.1 overs. Dwaine Pretorius, Gudakesh Motie and Imran Tahir were the standout bowlers, claiming four, two and two wickets, respectively, while the Knight Riders struggled to establish any substantial partnerships.

TKRs’ batting woes were evident as Chadwick Walton, Mark Deyal and Nicholas Pooran fell quickly. Keacy Carty provided some resistance with a gritty 38 off 45 balls, but the Knight Riders failed to gain momentum.

Chasing a modest target, the Amazon Warriors displayed composure and class. Saim Ayub, the star of the show, hammered an explosive 52 runs off 41 deliveries, including five towering sixes. Shai Hope and Keemo Paul provided valuable support with their respective contributions of 32 and 11 runs. GAW achieved the target in just 14 overs, with Ayub leading the charge.

On the bowling front, Akeal Hosein was the sole wicket-taker for the Knight Riders, accounting for Keemo Paul’s dismissal. However, the total proved far too inadequate to pose any real challenge to the formidable Guyana team.

With this resounding victory, GAW put an end to their final jinx, securing their maiden CPL title. Their clinical performance in both batting and bowling ensured they emerged as the undisputed champions of the 2023 CPL season, leaving their fans jubilant.

This triumph will undoubtedly be remembered as a historic moment for the Guyana Amazon Warriors, marking a new chapter in their CPL journey.
