So, that's it from Qualifier 1 where Trinbago Knight Riders qualify for their 5th CPL final.

For now, this is Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Saptak Sanyal alongside scorer/analyst Ghanendra Singh Thakur. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodbye and CHEERS!  
Kieron Pollard (Trinbago Knight Riders Captain): "I think credit to the backroom staff for supporting us. I think we executed things well and played well. Don't want to single out anyone. The guys came out well and the intensity was right up there. We had to bat well. It was a gettable score and the way Chadwick used his opportunity was great to see. The support staff planned things and got the job done in the end. We haven't thought about it. We have reached there will celebrate and then think about what's going to happen on Sunday. The Guyana side are a good side and we are happy to beat them. Great support from the crowds everywhere. We tried to bring a smile to their face and glad we did that and now we are into the final now on Sunday. Looking forward to it."  
Romario Shepherd(Guyana Amazon Warriors Stand-in Captain)- "They bowled well and I think we were 20 runs short. We could have defended 167 with the ball and our bowling efforts have been ordinary. Captain decided to remove Odean Smith from bowling and it was a team decision. We have to take more catches in the next game, dropping chances with 167 on board is not good. We need to step up and have a good total against Jamaica Tallawahs in the next game. We would look to post a good total." 
Chadwick Walton(Player of the match)- "I would like to thank our coach and players for believing in me. It's been an emotional half century. I got no half century since the last season and thankful to my teammates that they gave me the opportunity. Feeling better to contribute in a big game. Hopefully we will do better in the final"
