MLC 2024: 5 players who are a must-pick for Texas Super Kings vs Los Angeles Knight Riders clash


The second season of the MLC, the MLC 2024 will be underway from the 6th of July, and after the first clash between the two finalists from the final of the MLC 2023, the last edition semi-finalists, the Texas Super Kings, will take on the Los Angeles Knight Riders in the second game of the season.

The LAKR contemporaries in the Indian Premier League, the KKR, won under the leadership of a new mentor. However, their squad doesn’t look the best among the teams in Major League Cricket, as the Texas Super Kings can be one-sided dominators in the match-up over a Sunil Narine-led Knight Riders side.

The match will be an overnight fixture to be played at Dallas; the pitch, though, was one of the worst tracks to play on during the T20 World Cup.

Let’s take a look at the top 5 players who should be a must-pick in the TSK vs. LAKR clash.

David Miller

The Protea middle-order batter has been a great finisher in the shortest format of the game. Miller has been a consistent part of every Global T20 platform, and his experience has been the most among several players who compete in the MLC.

Playing his first season with the Los Angeles Knight Riders, Miller will be seen deploying the role of a finisher in the set-up alongside Andre Russell. After a controversial catch by Suryakumar Yadav that cost them the World Cup, the veteran batter will be looking to restore his lost value with his performance in the Major League Cricket tournament.

Marcus Stoinis

Marcus Stoinis, the big all-rounder from Australia, has been a great player of the shortest format. Stoinis, known for his muscular build, is one of the cleanest hitters on the cricket ball. Though Stoinis has often been deployed in the role of a middle-order occasionally by several franchise-level teams, even he has fulfilled everyone’s expectations.

Stoinis, who performed convincingly for LSG in the IPL and then later played a vital role for the Aussies, is drafted in for the first time by the Texas Super Kings, and he will be seen playing a very crucial role, making him a must-pick from the match-up.

Afghan medium-pacer, who came back from international retirement to feature for his side in the T20 World Cup, went on to be a dominant performer alongside the tournament’s highest wicket-taker, Farooqi.

With Naveen’s wide variations and sublime accuracy, he can be placed as the Texas Super Kings’ lead pacer and will be a must-pick who might go on to pick the major wickets for his side in the MLC 2024.

Sunil Narine

The T20 veteran Windies all-rounder, Sunil Narine, was the most valuable player of the tournament playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2024. He was the major contributor to KKR’s IPL triumph and will be once again seen representing the Los Angeles Knight Riders as their skipper.

Expected to do well with both the bat and ball, Narine might also be seen in the role of an opener for the LAKR. He can be a rescue player with the LAKR and will be a very vital inclusion among the crucial players for MLC 2024.

Andre Russell

Russell though has not been able to serve his high standards to any team in the past few years, yet a world-class all-rounder like him is sure to deliver on the field. Russell has always stood tall either with bat or ball and will be expected to do so for the Los Angeles Knight Riders as well.

Playing in the role of a finisher, he is known for his colossal sixes and wicket-taking ability and is often regarded as one of the best all-rounders in the world. Playing at the MLC 2024, Russell will be a must-pick player not only in the match but also the entire tournament.
