Seattle Orcas defeated Washington Freedom by five wickets

Talking of the game, it was Seattle Orcas who emerged victorious in the game by five wickets, as they successfully managed to chase the target down.

Through a joint effort, the side managed to post 144 runs on the board for Seattle to chase.

Wayne Parnell and Harmeet Singh were the highest wicket-takers for Seattle in the first innings, taking two wickets each. Furthermore, Imad Wasim, Cameron Gannon, and Andrew Tye struck once.

Aiming to chase a target of 145 runs, the knocks of Nauman Anwar and Imad Wasim helped Seattle register a brilliant win. Anwar scored 48 runs with Wasim played an unbeaten 43-run knock. Seattle chased down the target and won the game by five wickets. Getting off to the perfect start, the side will hope for similar performances in the forthcoming matches of the MLC.
