SOR vs WAF Team Previews

Seattle Orcas

A heavy defeat in their opening game has put the Orcas on the back foot early on. They have plenty of quality players in their squad to turn their form around.

The top of the table team from 2023 have retained the services of Cameron Gannon. The fast bowler claimed 11 wickets in a 2023 season which saw him walking away as the best domestic player of the tournament.

Heinrich Klaasen concluded the 2023 MLC season as the second-highest run-scorer behind South African teammate Quinton de Kock. The South African master blaster scored 235 runs for Seattle Orcas in 2023.

Quinton de Kock has been highly demanded in the IPL for most of its history. His innings of 87 off 52 in the 2023 MLC Final gives a good reason why franchises want him in their side.

Heinrich Klaasen, Quinton de Kock, Ryan Rickelton, Nandre Burger, Zaman Khan, Imad Wasim, Harmeet Singh, Shubham Ranjane, Cameron Gannon, Nauman Anwar, Hammad Azam.

Washington Freedom

Washington Freedom were unbeaten after two games with a win and a no result. The competition is still in its infancy so it may be too early to call them favourites. A strong start will boost their chances of play-off qualification though.

Saurabh Netravalkar will be a major part of Washington's new ball attack. He will want to continue his impressive T20 form that he showed in his home T20 World Cup. He took two wickets against Texas Super Kings.

Justin Dill was originally from South Africa before relocating to the USA where he has made a name for himself. His pace and ability to swing the ball make him a threat. He took eight T20 wickets in eight matches before leaving for the USA.

Steve Smith has served as the captain of the Australian cricket team. Despite one of the sport's biggest controversies, his leadership and batting prowess have earned him respect and admiration globally. He has won a World Cup trophy in every format of the game.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather is expected to be hot and humid with temperatures only getting hotter as we enter the night. There is no chance of rain falling.

During the T20 World Cup, scores at this ground were generally on the lower side. The USA's 197 for 3 in 17.4 overs to Canada's 194 for five in 20 overs was one of the exceptions to that rule.

SOR vs WAF Betting Tips

There is very little history between these two sides, as is the case between most of the Major League Cricket teams. The game may come down to quality players playing a match-winning knock on the day.

Neither side will be considered clear favourites. Washington Freedom may feel that they edge Seattle Orcas on current form overall. They could be the better bet in this fixture.
