Barbados Royals 169/7 (Matthews 82, Williams 36; Ismail 4/30, Patil 1/25) beat Guyana Amazon Warriors 161/8 by eight runs.

Barbados Royals finished the 2023 Massy Women’s Premier League (WCPL) season as champions they wrapped up an eight-run final win against the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

After topping the group stage with two wins over the Warriors and one win and one loss over previous winners Trinbago Knight Riders, the Royals claimed the second-ever WCPL title at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad.

After losing the toss and being put into bat for the first time, the Royals posted 169/7 with Captain Matthews finding a big score at the right time before being slowed down in the final few overs keeping the Warriors in hope of a result.

In response, competition top scorer Sophie Devine could only manage a start before some tight bowling restricted the run rate required, leaving the Warriors short.

Gaby Lewis got the Royals off to a firing start before falling side the PowerPlay with a score of 37/1 after six overs.
