Brandon King and Hayden Walsh Jr end as tournament toppers.
Guyana Amazon Warriors are currently on a streak of 11 wins, a CPL record. However, they have played four finals but won none. Barbados Tridents, on the other hand, have won one of their two finals.
Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents will feature it out in the final, at Tarouba. Barbados have won the CPL once and Guyana, despite reaching the final four times, never.
