MINY vs SOR Match Preview

Shayan Jahangir and Monank Patel finally managed to give the New York team a good start in the last match and will look to keep up the good work. MI New York has a star-studded batting line-up, with players like Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, and Tim David.

Rashid Khan can bat well too, and the inclusion of all-rounder David Weise has added depth to the batting. In the bowling department, Trent Boult has been the spearhead of the pace battery, picking up 7 wickets. He will be joined by Pollard, Ehsan Adil, and Weise at the other end.

The spin attack has been strengthened by bringing in Nosthush Kenjige, who will bowl alongside Rashid Khan. 

One of the biggest strengths for the Orcas has been the performance of its local players. Nauman Anwar has batted very well at the top of the order, and is the leading run-scorer for the team. Similarly, Shehan Jayasuriya has chipped in at key junctures.

Among the internationals, Heinrich Klaasen has batted well and has showcased his clean hitting. De Kock hasn’t been at his fluent best but will be hoping to gain back his form. The pace attack has been relentless in its bowling as the trio of Cameron Gannon, Andrew Tye, and Wayne Parnell has picked up a total of 24 wickets among themselves.

They will once again play an important role here. The spinners, Imad Wasim and Harmeet Singh have also been quite economical and have picked up wickets at regular intervals. 


Weather Report

The weather is expected to remain clear with temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Morrisville is excellent to bat on and has seen an average first-inning score of around 175. However, the team batting first will look to get as close to 200 as possible to give the bowlers a good chance. The quicker bowlers will get success here if they bowl a good line and length.

Notable stats
