Los Angeles Knight Riders vs San Francisco Unicorns Match Pitch Report
Not much is known about the playing conditions at Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas, Texas. The stadium was used as a ballpark but has been redeveloped as a cricket ground (reconstruction started in April 2022). Given that it is being used for the opening match of the inaugural edition of the Major League Cricket 2023, one can expect fireworks from the bats and diminishing returns with the ball, as is the case on most T20 pitches.
Reports suggest this will be a good batting wicket in Texas to begin the tournament. A par score is likely to be somewhere around 190.
What to expect:
Los Angeles Knight Riders: Sunil Narine will lead the Los Angeles Knight Riders, and they are one of the strongest teams this season. The side has its core from the Kolkata Knight Riders. These players have played together and know each other’s game. Narine would like to see his key players stand up to the occasion and earn their first points in this game.
They have a strong opening combination in Riley Rossouw and Jason Roy, and the pair will look to deliver a good start in this game. Unmukt Chand has to play an important role at No. 3 and add runs with Gajanand Singh and Jaskaran Malhotra. Narine and Andre Russell are powerful hitters making it a formidable batting line-up.
The side will need a good burst with the new ball from Lockie Ferguson and Shadley van Schalkwyk, as their opponents have firepower at the top. Adam Zampa and Narine form a strong spin attack and will look to trouble the batters. Ali Khan and Russell will look to do well in the supporting role.
Los Angeles Knight Key Players
- Rilee Rossouw- the South African left-handed international made only 4 runs from 3 balls in the opening game. However, he has a brilliant white ball record to fall back on ahead of this match.
- Andre Russell- the former West Indies international was expensive with the ball against Texas but hit an impressive 55 runs from 34 balls with the bat.
- Lockie Ferguson- the New Zealand pace bowler began the MLC 2023 tournament by dismissing Faf du Plessis and David Miller and will be looking forward to bowling on this pitch again.
Probable XI: Jason Roy, Unmukt Chand, Rilee Rossouw, Nitish Kumar, Jaskaran Malhotra (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine (c), Corne Dry, Adam Zampa, Lockie Ferguson, Ali Khan
Los Angeles Knight Squad: Jaskaran Malhotra, Jason Roy, Martin Guptill, Nitish Kumar, Rilee Rossouw, Saif Badar, Unmukt Chand, Ali Sheikh, Andre Russell, Bhaskar Yadram, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Sunil Narine, Adam Zampa, Ali Khan, Corne Dry, Lockie Ferguson
San Francisco Unicorns Riders: San Francisco Unicorns showed off their batting depth in their very first game. After being asked to bat first, they were 50-4 at one stage in the 7th over, but ended with a formidable total of 215-5, thanks to an outstanding unbeaten 91 off 51 balls by Corey Anderson. The Kiwi batter shared a scintillating 129-run partnership with all-rounder Shadab Khan (61 off 30 balls) to set up the massive total, which helped them cruise to a 22-run win.
The Unicorns have a star-studded batting lineup, with the likes of Finn Allen, Matthew Wade, Marcus Stoinis, and captain Aaron Finch making up their top order. The lower order came to their rescue in the first game, but we are backing Allen and Stoinis to make some hefty contributions in this game. Stoinis, in particular, is the batter to watch out for. He was in great form in the IPL this season, scoring 408 runs in 15 matches at a strike rate of 150.
Among the bowlers, the Unicorns will depend on Haris Rauf and Liam Plunkett to deliver the early strikes. Plunkett had figures of 2-30 from his 4 overs in the previous game and enjoyed bowling on this wicket. Shadab Khan’s leg-breaks too will come in handy during the middle overs.
San Francisco Unicorns Key Players
- Aaron Finch
- Corey Anderson
- Marcus Stoinis
- Shadab Khan
Probable XI: Finn Allen, Matthew Wade(w), Aaron Finch(c), Marcus Stoinis, Corey Anderson, Shadab Khan, Tajinder Dhillon, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Liam Plunkett, Carmi le Roux, Haris Rauf
San Francisco Unicorns Squad: Finn Allen, Matthew Wade(w), Aaron Finch(c), Marcus Stoinis, Corey Anderson, Shadab Khan, Tajinder Dhillon, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Liam Plunkett, Carmi le Roux, Haris Rauf, Lungi Ngidi, David White, Qais Ahmad, Mackenzie Harvey, Brody Couch, Sanjay Krishnamurthi, Smit Patel, Amila Aponso

Los Angeles Knight Riders vs San Francisco Unicorns Match Prediction
The Los Angeles Knight Riders must come out of the lows. They will need runs from their top order to do well in this game. The top order has let the side down in both games. The San Francisco Unicorns have their batsmen in good form and depth in the bowling attack. We expect a close contest, but the Unicorns have a slight edge.
