is that the game? Looks like it! Slogs this ball high up in the air at long on, where Tector gets under it to take a catch. But his foot is close to the boundary line so he throws the ball back in the air. Gets back in, completes the catch and Royals win. However, the TV umpire says that's out so Barbados Royals win by 87 runs and move to the final of CPL 2022!
That's all from us. See you in five hours for the Eliminator!
Here are the captains. Winning captain Mayers is here: "Our team is a great team. We just had a bad game the other day (against GAW). Cornwall hasn't had a great run but we have encouraged him. Azam continues to do well in these conditions. And then Simmonds - brilliant. Emerging to be a great player."
Losing captain Hetmyer: "On a day like today, they played well. We have to next time do whatever we have to do to win. Today also we backed ourselves to go out there and get 196. Concerns are that some players went down with some niggles. Game wise we know where we went wrong."
Cornwall is the Player of the Match: "At the start, I wanted to give myself a chance so hung in a it. The energy in the dressing room is good. The guys back us in the dressing room. We had confidence in the second innings knowing we had a good total to defend, but we needed a good start. Simmonds gave that. As an allrounder, want to do as much as I can. Good feeling to reach final. The team has put in a lot of work from the start of the competition."
1.37pm That's that, then. A one-sided Qualifier 1. But the season's most dominant team probably deserved a spot in the final anyway after losing just two games in the league stage. Royals were propelled to 195 courtesy Cornwall's 91 and Azam's half-century. After that, their bowlers made full use of the scoreboard pressure, with Mujeeb and Simmonds impressing.
