After a nail-biting win over MI New York in the previous match, Washington Freedom (WAS) will host Texas Super Kings (TEX) in their upcoming game on July 09 at Church Street Park, Morrisville. In their opening game of the second edition of the Major League Cricket, Saurabh Netravalkar and Justin Dill picked up three wickets each, while Glenn Maxwell and Lockie Ferguson have done a decent job. With the bat, skipper Steven Smith led by example.

When it comes to Texas, they lost to Los Angeles Knight Riders in their opening game. Devon Conway looked sensational, as the New Zealand international hit a half-century, but the other batters struggled with the bat. Among bowlers, Zia-ul-Haq, Aaron Hardie and Marcus Stoinis picked up two wickets each, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.

Pitch Report

Scoring runs hasn’t been easy in Morrisville. However, if a batter spends enough time in the middle, one can make a difference. Bowling first will be ideal, and anything over 160 should be enough for the side defending the target.

Probable Top Performers from WAS vs TEX

Probable Best Batter: Devon Conway

New Zealand international Devon Conway had a rough time in the T20 World Cup 2024. However, on his first match in the MLC 2024, the 33-year-old looked in good touch, scoring 53 runs off 39 balls. After losing the first match, Texas are under pressure and Conway would hope to help the franchise win their first match in the season.

Probable Best Bowler: Saurabh Netravalkar

USA’s Saurabh Netravalkar had a remarkable time in the T20 World Cup. He was a key component in USA’s success and the pacer has continued with a similar momentum for Washington in the ongoing MLC. If he continues in the same rhythm, Washington can very well challenge for the title.
