The first-ever season of the historic Major League Cricket starts on July 13th with a sensational clash between the Los Angeles Knight Riders and the Texas Super Kings at the Grand Prairie Stadium. As T20 franchise cricket comes to the USA, the fans will be excited for this epic clash to start off, what promises to be a groundbreaking tournament. There will be a full-house at the Grand Prairie stadium as the tickets for the first ever MLC clash got sold out days before the game-day.

The duo Andre Russell & Sunil Narine will be representing the fourth franchise owned by the Knight Riders group which in itself will be a history-making moment. 

LAKR have opted for the experience of Sunil Narine as their captain and the legendary West-Indies coach, Phil Simmons as their head-coach. The combination of Narine & Simmons will bring a calm demeanor and a positive attitude to the setup. The Knights have also been able to acquire highly-skilled and experienced T20 professionals in Rilee Rossouw, Martin Guptill, Adam Zampa & Jason Roy along with a mix of young USA players.

With a great mix of youth & experience, the Los Angeles Knight Riders will be facing a tough challenge in their first-ever MLC game, against the Texas Super Kings who have been able to establish a strong squad, similar to LAKR. The key battles to look out for in the game would be the spin duo of Narine-Zampa against Faf du Plessis and Devon Conway. Moreover, it will be the might of LAKR batting with the likes of Russell, Roy and Rossouw against an experienced TSK fast-bowling unit.
