Texas Super Kings vs Washington Freedom 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
- Devon Conway- the 32-year-old left-handed opener hit seven fours and one six in his innings of the opening match. He has been in brilliant form across all formats over the last four years.
- David Miller- the South African took the Player of the Match Award on Thursday with 61 runs from 42 balls. He is a brilliant T20 batter who stars in most leagues he takes part in.
- Mohammad Mohsin- the 27-year-old leg-spinner produced an excellent bowling performance with the wickets of Sunil Narine, Corne Dry, Adam Zampa, and Lockie Ferguson in the opening fixture.
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
Washington Freedom: Washington Freedom may not boast the most renowned T20 players, but they made strategic choices in acquiring talents like Anrich Nortje, Wanindu Hasaranga, Marco Jansen, Glenn Phillips, Adam Milne, Moises Henriques, and Josh Philippe.
The team will rely heavily on their bowling prowess, drawing upon the expertise of seasoned players such as Anrich Nortje, Adam Milne, and Marco Jansen. These four bowlers have the capacity to deliver their full quota of four overs in every game and are genuine wicket-takers.
Unfortunately, Hasaranga, the team’s prized acquisition, and main spinner, will be unavailable due to workload issues. Taking his place in the playing XI is the talented young Australian leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha, who has made a name for himself with exceptional performances for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League.
The batting responsibility for Washington Freedom in MLC 2023 will rest on the shoulders of Glenn Phillips, Moises Henriques, and Josh Philippe. Phillips, known for his hard-hitting batting, has proven himself as a formidable batsman for New Zealand in the middle order, making him an excellent fit for the No. 4 position. Captain Moises Henriques will have the added responsibility of leading this inexperienced batting lineup.
Washington Freedom Key Players
- Glenn Phillips- the New Zealand hard-hitting batter struck three fours and one six for Freedom on Friday. He is known as a T20 specialist batter.
- Akeal Hosein- the left-handed batter and left-arm spinner contributed with both bat and ball in the opening fixture. He hit 33 not out and took 1-20 with the ball.
- Anrich Nortje- the South African pace bowler bowled his fellow-countryman Quinton de Kock in his first appearance in the Major League Cricket on Friday.
Probable XI: Matthew Short, Andries Gous (wk), Mukhtar Ahmed, Glenn Phillips, Moises Henriques (c), Obus Pienaar, Marco Jansen, Akeal Hosein, Dane Piedt, Anrich Nortje, Saurabh Netravalkar
Washington Freedom Squad: Moises Henriques, Mukhtar Ahmed, Saad Ali, Sujith Gowda, Wanindu Hasaranga, Jacobus Pienaar, Justin Dill, Marco Jansen, Anrich Nortje, Dane Piedt, Akhilesh Bodugum, Ben Dwarshuis, Josh Philippe, Glenn Phillips, Andries Gous
