The inaugural season of the highly-anticipated Major League Cricket (MLC) is finally going to kick off on July 13 in the United States of America. The first match of the MLC 2023 will be played between Texas Super Kings and Los Angeles Knight Riders at the Grand Prairie Stadium in the state of Texas. Both these MLC teams will be looking to put up a great show of cricket in front of the new audience, to make it a memorable occasion.

Pitch Report:

The Grand Prairie Stadium, the newly converted cricket facility, was once the home of the Texas AirHogs team in a professional baseball league. They had left it vacant in 2020, which led to the new cricket stadium getting built. With no cricketing history associated with the Grand Prairie Stadium, it’s difficult to estimate the best possible first innings score, but since MLC is a T20 competition, the totals could get up in the range of 170 for the inaugural match of the tournament.

Team Analysis:

Texas Super Kings

Texas Super Kings is going to turn up in the first season of the MLC 2023 under the captaincy of world-renowned cricketing superstar Faf Du Plessis.

The players from the United States of America to watch out for are Saiteja Mukkamalla, Milind Kumar and Rusty Theron.

Match Prediction:

Texas and Los Angeles are looking really sides on paper, thanks to the plethora of quality overseas players at their disposal. But since the first match of the MLC 2023 is going to be played in Lone Star State, TSK might have an advantage over LAKR.
