MINY vs TSKS Match Preview

In the gripping saga of the Major League Cricket 2023, the Texas Super Kings emerged as early frontrunners, displaying an awe-inspiring performance that secured them the coveted second spot for a major part of the league stage. Winning three out of five matches, their consistent showing was a testament to their talent. However, their journey hit a roadblock in the first quarter-final when they faced the Seattle Orcas and suffered a disheartening defeat. To their dismay, their star players failed to shine with the bat, resulting in a subpar total when they batted first.


Despite their impressive lineup on paper, the Super Kings face a major concern with the form of Faf du Plessis, who has been struggling recently. There's a possibility of him being benched in a surprise tactical move. On the flip side, Devon Conway has been in sensational form, and much will depend on his bat wielding for the Texas Super Kings to flourish.


Their previous match against the Seattle Orcas unveiled vulnerabilities in their bowling attack and batting prowess. The bowlers appeared lackluster as the Orcas cruised to a nine-wicket victory, leaving five overs unused. The Super Kings' batting lineup faltered, failing to muster substantial contributions, resulting in a paltry total of 126. Now, the Super Kings must overcome their disappointment from the qualifier defeat and concentrate on the critical upcoming face-off with MI New York.


Contrastingly, MI New York's journey through the league stage was tumultuous, managing a mere two wins out of five matches. Their qualification to the playoffs might be deemed fortunate, but as the playoffs approached, they showed a glimmer of resurgence, making them a more formidable challenger.


Their progression to the second qualifier was far from smooth, marked by a lackluster batting performance in the eliminator. However, exceptional individual displays salvaged their position, earning them the opportunity to clash with the Texas Super Kings. Key players like Dewald Brevis, Tim David, and Trent Boult put up stellar performances, leading MI New York to a tally of three wins in the tournament thus far.


As the high-stakes playoffs continue, MI New York enters the arena with newfound momentum, determined to carry it forward into their most crucial match yet against the Texas Super Kings. The stage is set for an exhilarating battle as the teams vie for a spot in the grand finale of the inaugural Major League Cricket.

Weather Report

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. 

Pitch Report

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.
