Who impressed last year?

Barbados Tridents won their second title when they beat Guyana by 27 runs in last year’s showpiece and subjected Warriors to their fifth defeat in a CPL final – Guyana also going down in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018.

Barbados’ success owed a lot to leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr, who topped the wicket-taking charts with 22, while Guyana batsman Brandon King led the run-scoring charts with 496 in 12 innings at an average of 55.11, including an unbeaten 132 from 72 balls against Tridents in the group stage.

Chris Gayle – who has opted out of this season’s tournament – scored the other century last term, cracking 116 from 62 deliveries for Tallawahs against St Kitts and Nevis.
