The Guyana Amazon Warriors will be hoping to rewrite the history books today as they attempt to finish the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League T20 with a perfect win record and triumph in the tournament for the first time in what will be their fifth trip to the grand finale.

Amazon Warriors face the Barbados Tridents, who will be going for their second title, in what will be a rematch of the 2014 championship game when the Tridents emerged victorious. However, for both teams, that is in the past and what matters is how they tackle today’s match, which bowls off at 5 p.m. at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, in Tarouba. The CPL final will be preceded by the Courts Invitation Women’s T10 match which gets under way from 12.30 p.m.
