Texas Super Kings started their campaign on a positive note by defeating LA Knight Riders in their first game but faced a defeat in their previous fixture against Washington Freedom. Made to bowl first, Texas Super Kings bowler Gerald Coetzee picked up 2 wickets at an economy of 6.50. On the batting front, it was not a good start as skipper Faf du Plessis, Devon Conway, and Lahiru Milantha failed to give the team a good start. It was Dwayne Bravo at the lower end who handled the innings by scoring 76 off 39 bowls at a strike rate of 194.87 but his efforts went in vain because the team was unable to achieve the target.
Skipper Faf du Plessis will be coming up with the same combination of players.
Predicted Lineup: Mitchell Santner, Devon Conway, Milind Kumar, Faf du Plessis, Calvin Savage, Gerald Coetzee, Lahiru Milantha, Dwayne Bravo, Rusty Theron, David Miller, Mohammad Mohsin
MI New York started their campaign with a loss against San Francisco Unicorns but made an immediate comeback in their second fixture against LA Knight Riders. Batting first, the opening lineup failed to give the team a positive start and hence Nicholas Pooran and Tim David in the middle order handled the innings and took the team to a nominal score. However, it was a dominating performance by the bowling department as all the bowlers picked up 2 wickets each and the innings of LA Knight Riders was over at 50 runs in the 14th Over.
MI New York is on a winning momentum and they won’t be making any changes in the squad.
Predicted Lineup: Timothy David, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Dewald Brevis, Nosthush Kenjige, Hammad Azam, Ehsan Adil, Monank Patel, Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada, Shayan Jahangir
We are in for an absolute thriller as both teams have an equal number of points in the point table and they both are evenly matched. However, MI New York has an edge over Texas Super Kings with a good batting depth and their bowlers are in good form. We predict a win for MI New York on Tuesday.
