In match number 12, Los Angeles Knight Riders will be hosting Seattle Orcas on Sunday at Church Street Park. Both teams are on a different tangent of the point table and will be hoping to score a win.
Los Angeles Knight Riders are currently at the bottom of the point table with no wins yet and a net run rate of -2.675. The cricket betting sites have amazing MLC odds on their platforms.
Seattle Orcas is one of the top teams in the tournament cemented at the 2nd position in the point table with a net run rate of +1.043.
LA Knight Riders are having a disappointing season as they have not registered a single win in the four matches they have played. One of the biggest reasons for their below-average performance is the inconsistency shown by the opening batters. The weak start of the team puts pressure on the middle order and it is because of the same reason the middle order has also failed to impress. LA Knight Riders bowlers are showing higher economy and hence the opposition finds it easier to score big numbers.
Jason Roy will play a crucial role in the team as he can be the game changer for LA Knight Riders.
Predicted Lineup: Rilee Rossouw, Nitish Kumar, Sunil Narine, Jason Roy, Corne Dry, Jaskaran Malhotra, Spencer Johnson, Adam Zampa, Unmukt Chand, Ali Khan, Andre Russell
With two consecutive wins in the tournament, things are looking positive for Seattle Orcas. Nauman Anwar has played exceptionally well and has given the team a solid start in all the matches. Heinrich Klaasen, Shimon Hetmyer, and Imad Wasim have also handled the innings in a positive way in the middle order. Cameron Gannon and Andrew Tye have been consistent with their disciplined bowling and they both are major troubles to the opposition.
Skipper Wayne Parnell has the winning combination and he is expected to do any changes in the playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Wayne Parnell (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Nauman Anwar, Shehan Jayasuriya, Heinrich Klaasen, Imad Wasim, Shimron Hetmyer, Shubham Ranjane, Cameron Gannon, Harmeet Singh, Andrew Tye
LA Knight Riders have struggled in all four games. They have scored big numbers but the batters have shown inconsistency. Seattle Orcas is high on confidence with two consecutive wins and we predict a win for them Sunday.
