Major T20 League 2023

Match 9: WF vs LAKR



The 9th match of the ongoing Major T20 League will be played between Washington and Los Angeles on Friday, July 21. The game is scheduled at Church Steel Park in Morrisville. 

WF have won only one match in the tournament and that's against TSK meanwhile LAKR are lying at the bottom of the points table with three straight defeats in the last three matches. Hence Washington will be trying hard to get an easy win to defeat Los Angeles in this match to move up the ladder.

Washington batters have failed to set the stage on fire as a unit in the Major T20 League thus far; however, Matthew Short smashed a crucial for WF in the previous game versus TSK, which appeared sufficient for the team to earn the first victory in the tournament. In terms of bowling, Marco Jansen and Akeal Hosein were quite effective, but they will need assistance from other bowlers in the squad in the following matches.

After being struck out for only 50 runs against TSK, LAKR’s batting lineup performed much better in their second Major T20 League match. With the bat, Jason Roy, Andre Russell and Nitish Kumar put up a brave effort against San Francisco, but it wasn't enough to secure their maiden league victory. LAKR's bowling performance against SFU in the last match was dismal, except Adam Zampa, who was the main reason for their defeat.


Match Details

Match: WF vs. LAKR, Match 9, Major T20 League 2023

Date: Friday, July 21, 2023

Time: 3:00 AM (Jul 21)

Venue: Church Street Park, Morrisville


Pitch Report

This will be the very first match on this ground. The 1st innings score at Church Street Park in Morrisville has a 1st innings score of 160 runs. The pitch should be nice and hard and the captain choosing to bat instruct his team to score over 180 runs to keep enough drawer for their bowlers. 

This is a true sporting wicket which provides equal chances for both the batters and bowlers. The Pacers will do exceptionally well in this venue. We expect the weather to be clear but a little bit warmer than the other days.
