The Caribbean Premier League 2022 has ended with Jamaica Tallawahs clinching the title in style. Speaking of the toss, Barbados Royals’ skipper called it right at the toss and elected to bat first. One might have to agree that Kyle Mayers would have given thought if he had a chance to change his decision as the match did not go exactly as planned.
Talking about the Royals’ batting, the skipper and Rahkeem Cornwall opened the innings. Barbados Royals enjoyed a great powerplay as they managed to amass 63 runs for the loss of one wicket during the first six overs. However, post the powerplay, the Royals started falling apart.
At the end of sixteen overs, Barbados Royals remained at 129 for the loss of three wickets. The death overs turned out to be a nightmare for the team as they managed to score only 32 runs and lost four wickets in between. At the end of the first innings, Barbados Royals managed to score 161 for the loss of seven wickets.
