Jamaica Tallawahs defeated Barbados Royals by eight wickets on Friday night in the final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2022) at Providence Stadium in Guyana. This was Jamaica’s third CPL title as they won the title back in 2013 and 2016 as well.

The 2022 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) had a combined broadcast and digital audience of 721.8 million. The total number of viewers exceeded half a billion, a new record for the tournament and for the third year in a row.

Accordingly, the 2022 viewership was a 39 percent increase on the 2021 viewership, making the Caribbean Premier League the second most-watched T20 league in the world.

2022 saw the return of fans to the biggest party in the game with full stadiums adding to the carnival atmosphere synonymous with Hero CPL. Matches were held in St Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, and Guyana and a large number of sports fans from all four countries came to experience the tournament.

Two new tournaments were introduced before the tenth season of the CPL, the Massy Women’s Caribbean Premier League and the 6IXTY. Although some people have opposing opinions about these two tournaments, both these tournaments were strongly embraced by the cricket audience in the Caribbean.

Pete Russell, CEO of the CPL, says it’s a big step for the regional tournament to be able to surpass half a million spectators three times in a row.

“To have passed half a billion in viewership for the third year in a row, and to have taken a big step towards reaching one billion, is huge for Hero CPL.”

“2022 saw us celebrate ten years of this wonderful tournament and it was without question the best one yet. The rapidly increasing viewership number is just another indication of where Hero CPL sits, and we are delighted that we have been able to celebrate the success of this league with fans, governments, and commercial partners across the Caribbean.”
