Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders will lock horns in the final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023 on Sunday, September 24 (Monday, September 25 in India). The Providence Stadium in Guyana will play host to this match.
The Warriors have played in the CPL finals five times, but they ended up on the losing side every other time. The team, led by Imran Tahir, has its sixth chance this time around. It remains to be seen if they can turn their fortunes around in the final.
The Warriors topped the table in the group stage after losing only one match. But they lost to the Knight Riders in the Qualifier. However, they made amends by beating Jamaica Tallawahs in the Qualifier 2.
The Knights, led by Kieron Pollard, on the other hand, have won the title four times and are well aware of how to step up in big matches like finals. They had their fair share of troubles in the league stage, losing three out of 10 matches.
But they beat the Warriors in the Qualifier 1 and made their way to yet another final. Back in 2018, the Knight Riders, then led by Dwayne Bravo, beat the Warriors by eight wickets in the final.
