Despite being inconsistent throughout the Major League Cricket 2023, MI New York managed to qualify for the playoffs and will be challenging Washington Freedom on July 28 to seal the Challenger berth. Under the leadership of Kieron Pollard, there have been a few occasions where the team has played extremely well, however, bowling has been one of the areas of concern. Hence, there is a lot of room for improvement as the team will hope to move to the next round.

Meanwhile, their opponent, Washington Freedom suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of MI New York in the league stage and will be aiming to make a comeback. Their batting looks a bit dull but the likes of Matthew Short, Glenn Phillips and Moises Henriques can change the complexion of the game any time.

Nicholas Pooran

West Indies international Nicholas Pooran is in brilliant form at the moment, having hit 227 runs in five matches so far. With that, the cricketer is currently second on the list of leading run-scorer and if he manages to keep up with the form, MI New York can dream of making it to the next round.

Probable Best Bowler:

Trent Boult

With 11 wickets to his name in just five matches, Trent Boult is currently the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. He will be aiming to continue in the same fashion and may even find success as Washington batters are not in great form at the moment.
