So, that is it from myself, Karthik Raj, my co-commentator, Ayan Chatterjee and our scorer for this game, Ghanendra Singh Thakur. Do stay tuned to our coverage and join us for the CPL final between TKR and GAW on Monday.
Imran Tahir (Guyana Amazon Warriors captain): "Feel really proud. Coming to this competition, if anyone said we will play the final, I would have taken it any day. Everyone played their part. Everyone's worked hard. Really nice to see Azam score runs. He has been working hard. There are nerves. We have been in this situation many times before including myself. If you are not nervous, then you are not a human being. Even AB de Villiers would be. All I can say is that we deserve to be in the final. I am just pleased all the plans came to fruition and thankful to the fans too. We ideally wanted to be 120-125 off 14 overs. Got stuck there but we knew Azam, Sheppy (Romario Shepherd) were there. We have to improve during the middle-overs. I have said many times toss is just a thing as it can go any way. We just have to focus on the game. I would love to have him any day (Keemo Paul). He was very emotional when he found that he wouldn't play this game. Hopefully, he will be available for the final."
Brandon King (Jamaica Tallawahs Captain): "Yes, I don't think we bowled and fielded well. Azam played a great knock in the end. We believed we could get there. Dew was there, but we batted badly and lost the game there. Yes, I am not `100%. That was clear to see. But I tried my best and gave my best shot in the end. I think I have learnt to balance everything and manage players and it was new to me. Glad with the experience that I got. I think Imad was brilliant and so was Amir with the ball. Springer bowled well and he is doing really well and he is a star to watch out for. Thank You very much."    
Azam Khan: "We lost a couple of wickets early on. The pitch wasn't great to bat on. I backed myself to take on the bowling. It is about testing your nerve in the big games. I was getting caught at deep square-leg. Today, I had a different plan to go over mid-off and mid-on and I succeeded with that. Dwaine was great with two early wickets. It was very sweet of him to hand over the award."
Dwaine Pretorius awarded his Player of the Match trophy to Azam Khan.  
Dwaine Pretorius (Player of the Match): "Yes, obviously as a team we needed to prove a point. We let ourselves down against TKR. The boys are motivated very well and we want to win the cup for the side. They believed in me a lot and gave me great plans to me. This man of the match award belongs to AK. Azam deserves this more. So, I request him to take the award from myself."  

The Guyanese bowlers continued to keep their feet on the peddle as Ronsford Beaton had Raymon Reifer caught-behind to get his first scalp of the game. The score soon became 41-6 as Tahir trapped Shamar Springer in front while Odean Smith got the better of Fabian Allen in the 11th over. The collapse continued with Gudakesh Motie joining the party by castling Chris Green around his legs. Imad fought a lone battle but Tahir bowled Nicholson Gordon in the 16th over to bring an end to the game and help Guyana go through to the final with an 81-run victory

What an amazing comeback from Guyana Amazon Warriors after the Qualifier 1 as they register a smashing 81-run win to get to the final. The majority of the job was done by the batters itself as they posted an impressive 182-6 on a two-paced track. However, the bowlers also turned up and did so in style. The Jamaica opening duo of Brandon King and Alex Hales started steadily but Romario Shepherd had the former caught-behind in the fourth over. In the very next over, Dwaine Pretorius struck twice to remove Hales and Shamarh Brooks. The situation continued to get worse as Steven Taylor was dismissed by Imran Tahir as Jamaica finished the Powerplay with 32-4 on the board.

Mohammad Amir won't come out to bat due to hamstring issues and so, this is the end of the match.
