I am using IEEE Access template to write the paper and in the middle of the page, I need to insert a table that spans across both columns. Therefore, I used strip. The output I am getting is shown in the image below. enter image description here

The problem is that I am unable to write the caption as per IEEE Access style which is shown in the image below. enter image description here

Below is my MWE.

\documentclass{ieeeaccess}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{cuted}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\def\BibTeX{{\rm B\kern-.05em{\sc i\kern-.025em b}\kern-.08em
    T\kern-.1667em\lower.7ex\hbox{E}\kern-.125emX}}
\begin{document}
\history{Date of publication xxxx 00, 0000, date of current version xxxx 00, 0000.}
\doi{10.1109/ACCESS.2017.DOI}

\titlepgskip=-15pt

\maketitle

\label{sec:introduction}
\PARstart{T}{his} document is a template for \LaTeX. 
\begin{strip}
\centering
\setlength{\tabcolsep}{3pt}
\begin{tabular}{|p{45pt}|p{115pt}|p{150pt}|p{150pt}|}
\hline
\textbf{Reference} & \textbf{Technique(s)} & \textbf{Data} & \textbf{Findings} \\
\hline
[1] & Text & Some Text & Some More Text \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{strip}
\EOD

\end{document}

Kindly help how can I add caption and label in the prescribed format.

You could use the \captionof command from the capt-of package. In your MWE,

\documentclass{ieeeaccess}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{cuted}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{capt-of}
\def\BibTeX{{\rm B\kern-.05em{\sc i\kern-.025em b}\kern-.08em
    T\kern-.1667em\lower.7ex\hbox{E}\kern-.125emX}}
\begin{document}
\history{Date of publication xxxx 00, 0000, date of current version xxxx 00, 0000.}

    The \captionof command is also defined by the caption package, if happen to load it already. – Bernard Jan 18 '20 at 17:35
