Texas Super Kings vs Los Angeles Knight Riders 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:
Texas Super Kings: Faf Du Plessis brings a lot of experience as a leader for the Texas Super Kings. They have a strong group of players and will look to make an impressive start in the tournament. The Super Kings’ skipper will know the Knight Riders’ strengths and expect a strong show from his players.
Faf du Plessis shall look to lead from the front and deliver a strong start along with Devon Conway. The side will expect a good show from Saiteja Mukkamalla, Sami Asla, and Ambati Rayudu in the middle order. David Miller, Dwayne Bravo, and Daniel Sams add firepower to this batting line-up down the order.
Bowling is the weak area for the team, and they need a good opening spell from Daniel Sams and Rusty Theron to create problems for the Knight Riders. Mitchell Santner has vast experience and will look to do well along with Zia Shahzad. Bravo needs to deliver the goods in the supporting role.
Texas Super King’s Key Players
- Faf du Plessis – The former South African captain hit eight half-centuries including 36 sixes during the 2023 IPL at the top of the order for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
- Devon Conway – The keeper-batter has had a fantastic few years in international cricket and had a brilliant 2023 IPL where he averaged 51.69.
- Dwayne Bravo – The experienced bowling all-rounder is second to only Yuzvendra Chahal in the all-time wicket-takers list in the IPL. He will be very useful in this game with his wide range of variations.
Texas Super Kings Squad: Faf du Plessis, Milind Kumar, Cody Chetty, Saiteja Mukkamalla, Ambati Rayudu, David Miller, Devon Conway, Calvin Savage, Zia Shahzad, Daniel Sams, Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Rusty Theron, Lahiru Milantha, Cameron Stevenson
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
- Jason Roy – The England international opener goes hard at the ball from the start of his innings. He will enjoy the pace and bounce on this wicket.
- Rilee Rossouw – The South African international is a regular face on the T20 circuit. His form has not been brilliant over the last 6 months but he has the ability to win a game on his own with the bat.
- Lockie Ferguson – The New Zealand pace bowler can cause problems for the best batters in the world. He should get some assistance from this pitch in Texas.
Probable XI: Jason Roy, Martin Guptill, Rilee Rossouw, Gajanand Singh, Sunil Narine (c), Ali Khan, Jaskaran Malhotra (wk), Lockie Ferguson, Unmukt Chand, Adam Zampa, Nitish Kumar
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

We are predicting that Los Angeles Knight Riders’ batters will be the key players and are backing the Los Angeles Knight Riders to win.
The Los Angeles Knight Riders have a good bowling attack, but a lack of experience in the middle order is a big worry for the side. They have to bowl well to win this game. The Texas Super Kings have a very strong batting line-up. We expect it to be a close contest, but the Los Angeles Knight Riders have a slight edge.
