Major T20 League 2023

Eliminator: WF vs MINY

Preview 

It is a do-or-die contest as WF takes on MIYN in the Eliminator of Major T20 League 2023 on Friday, July 28, 2023. WF and MINY come here with losses in their last league games. While Moises Henriques' side Washington went down against MINY, their opponents lost a high-scoring game against Seattle in the last match. 

Kieron Pollard-led MINY defeated WF in the league game, and the side will feel confident in this contest. They have a powerful batting line-up with big hitters and look to ride on their strength. WF has punched above its weight in most games, and it will look to do the same in this high-pressure contest. 

The Aussies all-rounder and skipper of the side Moises Henriques' side must put behind the poor show in the last game against MINY. Though their bowling attack was torn apart as the side went down by 8 wickets. Facing the same team in the Eliminator is a big challenge for the team, and the 36-year-old right-handed batter would like a spirited show from his team to stay in the hunt for the title.  

Former Windies batter Kieron Pollard and his side started as one of the favourites in the tournament for the Major T20 League. However, they failed to show consistency. The side went down by 2 wickets in their last league game against the SO. They had defeated WF by a big margin in the earlier game, and the kipper of the side would like his team to take inspiration from that win. 

 

Match Details

Match: WF vs MINY, Eliminator, Major T20 League 2023
Date: Friday, July 28, 2023
Time: 2:00 AM (Jul 28)
Venue: Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas, United States

 

Pitch Report

This ground is small ground with a lightning-quick outfield which allows the batters to free their arms and score quick runs. There is some assistance for the seam bowling early on in the game, and the spinners have struggled as the short boundaries make life difficult for them. We expect a batting-friendly wicket where the ball comes to the bat nicely for this encounter. The bowlers have a small margin for error, as the batter can play their strokes freely to put pressure on their opponents. The side batting first will eye a score of 195+ runs to feel safe on this ground.  

It will be clear skies over Dallas on match day.

Match Prediction

WF has impressed in this tournament by finishing 3rd on the points table. Moises Henriques-led WF didn't start as the strongest team but surprised their opponents. Washington's scoring rate has been a problem, and the side will need its batters to score quick runs to win this game to secure next round's berth in the tournament. MINY is a batting powerhouse with the best hitters on the side with the likes of Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Tim David and more. We say MINY to win this match.
