Seattle Orcas vs MI New York 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:
Seattle Orcas: Seattle Orcas’ win over Washington Freedom at Grand Prairie Stadium wasn’t the most convincing one, but they will still be overall happy with the end result. On a wicket that became a little two-paced, they struggled a bit in their chase of 145, but eventually crossed the mark with two balls to spare. Opener Nauman Anwar top-scored with a fluent 48 off 37 balls, while Imad Wasim provided the finishing touches with his unbeaten 43 off 28 balls.
The Orcas’ batting largely depends on Quinton de Kock at the top and Heinrich Klaasen in the middle, with Shimron Hetmyer as their designated finisher. Both De Kock and Klaasen failed to make any contribution in the first game, but we expect either one of them to go make an impact in this match. Hetmyer did his job well in the last match, scoring 23 off 19 balls in the dying moments of the chase. He is likely to continue his good work.
The Orcas produced a solid bowling performance in the first match against MI, restricting them to 144-7 in their 20 overs. Left-arm spinner Imad Wasim was miserly as ever in the Powerplay, and he will pose the biggest challenge to Francisco’s top-order. Andrew Tye (1-26 off 4 overs) bowled tight lines and lengths, and the team will continue to use him in the middle overs.
One major issue for the Seattle Orcas is their bowling department, which lacks experienced seamers beyond Parnell. This can prove to be a big hurdle for them in the tournament.
Seattle Orcas Key Players
- Heinrich Klaasen – The South African power-hitter was in brilliant form during the 2023 Indian Premier League and produced a Player of the Match performance in the last game.
- Shimron Hetmyer – The 26-year-old West Indies international finished on 36 not out in his last innings. He is a very attacking batter and will enjoy the pace on offer in Morrisville.
- Cameron Gannon – The experienced USA pace bowler took three wickets from four balls in the 18th over against San Francisco. He should generate good speed from this pitch as well.
Seattle Orcas Squad: Quinton de Kock(w), Nauman Anwar, Shimron Hetmyer, Heinrich Klaasen, Imad Wasim, Shehan Jayasuriya, Shubham Ranjane, Cameron Gannon, Wayne Parnell(c), Harmeet Singh, Andrew Tye, Angelo Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Dwaine Pretorius, Hayden Walsh, Aaron Jones, Nisarg Patel, Phani Simhadri, Matthew Tromp
MI New York: Kieron Pollard will lead MI New York in this tournament, and they are seen as one of the strongest sides this season. The side has its core group from the Mumbai Indians franchise of the IPL, and players know each other’s game. Pollard likes leading from the front, and he will be aiming for a good start to the tournament.
Steven Taylor and Dewald Brevis will look for a solid start in this game. A good show at the top will lay a strong platform for the middle order, with players like Nicholas Pooran, Monak Patel, and Tim David. The side has firepower down the order and shall expect quick runs from Pollard and David Weise.
Trent Boult and Kagiso Rabada have vast experience, and the pair will look to deliver a good show with the new ball and put Unicorns under pressure. Sarabjit Ladda and Nosthush Kenjige must rise to the challenge as they take on quality batters in this game. Pollard and Weise shall look to use their experience in the supporting role.
MI New York Key Players
- Nicholas Pooran- the 27-year-old left-handed keeper-batter hit three sixes and two fours in the defeat on Friday. He is an attacking player irrespective of the team score.
- Tim David- the right-handed Australian middle-order batter produced another excellent T20 innings in the opening game as he hit 53 not out from 28 balls.
- Kagiso Rabada- the South African right-arm quick bowler took the wickets of both of San Francisco Unicorns’ openers and will get plenty of pace on this pitch.
MI New York Squad: Ehsan Adil, Hammad Azam, Jason Behrendorff, Trent Boult, Dewald Brevis, Tim David, Saideep Ganesh, Shayan Jahangir, Nosthush Kenjige, Rashid Khan, Sarbjeet Ladda, Monank Patel, Kyle Phillip, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Kagiso Rabada, Steven Taylor, David Wiese

Seattle Orcas vs MI New York Match Prediction
There was plenty of excitement ahead of this first Major League Cricket tournament and the competition has lived up to expectations. The cricket has been to a very high quality and this final sees some of the top T20 players in the world going head to head.
The Orcas have been very consistent throughout the campaign and will battle all the way but we think that Trent Boult’s form could be enough to deliver the title for MI New York. Our prediction is for a close game but with MI New York getting the win.
