MINY vs TSKS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jul 29, 2023

A short, crisp tournament that was nothing short on entertainment is finally coming to an end. We are just one step away from the grand finale of the inaugural edition of the Major League Cricket 2023. The league has been largely a success, attracting crowds to the stadiums and eyeballs online and on the television. It has certainly been a lot of entertainment from a tournament that was just over a couple of weeks long. 




Before we get our two finalists, we have Texas Super Kings taking on Mumbai Indians New York in what will be the second qualifier. Seattle Orcas are already through to the finale and will meet the winner of the above match on 30th July. Both sides did reasonably well in the league stage and should make for an exciting contest.




The match between the two sides is to be played on 28th July 2023 at the Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas. While the rivalry of the two sides is pretty new in Major League Cricket, the rivalry between the franchise is one of the biggest in the cricket world and we expect that to be seen on the field as well. This might well turn out to be the biggest match of the tournament. 

MINY vs TSKS Team Previews

MI New York

MI New York were one of the worst-performing sides in the league stage and thanks to the format of the tournament, they managed to sneak into the playoffs with just two wins from five matches. However, they would be fairly confident coming into this match as they have gathered momentum as we have gotten close to the playoffs. 


MI New York will consider themselves fortunate after making it to the second qualifier inspire of not putting enough runs on the board while batting first. They were dismal with the bat in the eliminator but a few brilliant performances ensured that they move forward to what now will be a meeting with Texas Super Kings. 


A good set of performances from Dewald Brevis, Tim David, and Trent Boult helped them eliminate Washington Freedom. MI now have three wins in the tournament, including two in the league stage, and will want to carry on with the momentum in their most important match so far.

Texas Super Kings

Texas Super Kings looked fantastic in the beginning of the tournament and were at the second-spot for most part. They finished with three wins from five matches in the league stage, at the second spot, only to lose to Seattle Orcas in the first quarter-final. None of their stalwarts fired with the bat as they could muster only an under-par total batting first. 


On paper, the Super Kings showed the kind of strength they have with regular excellent performances. Having said that, the form of Faf du Pleases will definitely be of massive concern. Although unlikely, given the big match player he is, we might well see him sitting out in a surprise move. Devon Conway, on the other hand, has been in a superb touch and a lot will be riding on him for Texas Super Kings to do well.  


The Super Kings will be disappointed with the way they performed in their last game, which was against the Seattle Orcas. Their bowlers were a complete no-show, as Orcas annihilated them by nine wickets and with five overs to spare. The Super Kings were also poor with the bat, as none of their batsmen could put up a chunky contribution, leaving them to defend a paltry total of 126. They would now have to put the qualifier defeat aside, as they have a job to do in the much-important upcoming qualifier against MI New York.

MINY vs TSKS Toss Prediction

It’s just the time of the season when Texas stays relatively dry and extremely hot. The fitness of the players will be tested and even though this is a high-pressure match, no team would want to bowl when the sun is out. Expect the captain winning the toss to bowl first. 

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

It generally is steaming hot at this time of the year in Texas. The square boundary dimensions are skewed - 72m to one side, 61m to the other, and therefore left-right combination is going to be important. It would be a 73m hit straight down the ground and that is what batsmen will target against the spinners. There is grass on the surface and there could be a temptation for the captain winning the toss to bowl first. Anything over 165 should be a good total batting first. 



MINY vs TSKS Betting Tips

Needless to say, this is the most important game of the tournament for both these sides. The winner will move to grab the coveted spot in the finale and a shot at getting the coveted inaugural Major League Cricket trophy. Both teams have secured the same number of wins up until now and there isn’t a lot to choose between the two. Having said that, the Texas Super Kings looked a better-balanced side in the league stage and on-paper. For that and the other reasons stated above, a bet on Texas Super Kings win should be the way to go here.

    Nicholas Pooran - To Score a Fifty - Yes



Nicholas Pooran was a complete failure in the previous outing but he is a kind of player who can’t be sitting duck for long. He is likely to bounce back and what better occasion it would be than to do it in a match that matters the most. He has also promoted himself up the order and that would allow him ample chance to get set before going all guns blazing. Bet on Pooran to top-score for MI New York.
