Rovman Powell-led Jamaica Tallawahs beat Barbados Royals and crowned champions of the CPL 2022

Jamaica Tallawahs won their Third Caribbean Premier League by defeating Barbados Royals on Friday evening.

Previously The Tallawahs won the CPL two time in 2013 & 2016.

Tallawahs, have had a less straightforward path to the championship game but it is worth noting that the last two times they had made it this far, they went and won the whole thing.

Powell’s men had set the early pace in 2022, along with Royals, with three wins in their first four matches, but slowed down in the Trinidad and Guyana legs of the tournament.

The Jamaica Tallawahs first clinched a win against Saint Lucia Kings in the Eliminator match and then defeated Guyana in Qualifier 2 to march ahead.

Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nabi, and Powell himself doing the job for them with bat and ball.

Although local opener Kennar Lewis is yet to fire like he can, Brandon King and Shamarh Brooks have showed attacking at the top.

Brooks is more of an ODI-style white-ball player Having come into the squad as a replacement player in 2021, Brooks played a heroic knock in the second qualifier on Wednesday.

Their bowling attack certainly had Mohammad Amir and Imad taking 16 wickets each.

Brandon King is the top run-scorer for Jamaica Tallawahs more than 400 runs at a strike rate of 129. He has struck 16 sixes and 32 fours. Rovman Powell has also made 267 runs at a strike rate of 124.
