Despite valiant efforts from the Guyana Amazon Warrior Women, Barbados Royals bested them by four wickets in a thrilling winner-takes-all game.
The Royals won the toss and put the Warriors into bat and their decision was vindicated when they kept them to 100 from their 20 overs.
The Warriors’ openers Matthews and Alleyne looked keen to get the chase done quickly and were 22/0 after five overs before Gajnabi trapped Alleyne lbw with the first ball of her spell and made it two-in-two as Cooper edged behind off the next ball.
Despite Warriors’ openers Chamari Athapaththu and Rashada Williams racing to 21 from four overs, batting heroics from Qiana Joseph help Barbados Royals book a spot in the Massy Women's Caribbean Premier League (WCPL) final.
They will now take on the Trinbago Knight Riders, whom they recently defeated in the final of the SKYEXCH 6IXTY last week.
