CPL 2022 GAW vs BR Qualifier 1: Guyana Warriors will cross swords with Barbados Royals in Qualifier 1 of the CPL 2022 on Tuesday at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Both the teams have played the last game of the league stage in which Amazon Warriors displayed a spell-bounding performance to turn the table towards Barbados royals by winning the fixture by five wickets.
Batting first, Barbados Royals were restricted to a meager 125 runs target, thanks to a blistering bowling performance by the Warriors. Azam Khan (20 off 22 balls) & Jason Holder (42 off 39 balls) helped the Royals to recover from an early jolt. Later, Mujeeb (15 off 14), McCoy (10 off 13) & Ramon Siumonds (13 off 6) brief cameos meant the Royals breach the 100 runs mark.
For Warriors, Romario Shepherd returned with figures of 3-14 while Keemo Paul & Odean Smith too scalped two wickets apiece.
In reply, Amazon warriors displayed a heroic performance with the bat & chased the target in 14.2 overs. Ramanullah Gurbaz (22 off 25 balls) & Shakib-Al-Hasan (53 off 35 balls) laid the foundation of their successful chase. Later Keemo Paul’s unbeaten 12 off 10 balls powered Warriors over the line in just 14.3 overs. For Royals, McCoy displayed a lethal show with the ball by scalping two wickets for 22 runs. Mayers & Rahman too provided good support by returning with one wicket each.
Heading into the first Qualifier both the teams display their best performance to book a place in the Finals. The winner of this match will qualify for the Final while the loser will head into the eliminator match. Amazon Warriors are placed at the second position on the Points table while Royals are leading the Points Table. Initially, Amazon lost its first four matches but later it made a turnaround & won the rest of its four matches to grab the second position on the Points Table. Warriors would aim to continue their winning spree & march into the final while Royals would aim to bounce back & become the first team to qualify for the finals.
