MLC 2023: MI New York vs LA Knight Riders – What happened in the match?

MI New York won the toss and elected to bat. Batter Dewald Brevis, who hit a six and a four in Lockie Ferguson’s first over to take New York to 16/0, tried to give a brilliant positive start. The lightning start didn’t last long as Corne Dry trapped Brevis in front of the stumps to dismiss him on a score of 15. The Knight Riders started strengthening their grip on the match with the help of Captain Sunil Narine’s and Adam Zampa’s spin duo. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals for New York and they were left lingering at 63/4 halfway through the innings.

Nicholas Pooran tried to construct a partnership with Tim David, but he was dismissed as Ali Khan sent him for 38 off 37 balls. Tim David continued to keep the scoreboard ticking. It was only thanks to Tim David’s counter-attacking batting that New York scored 62 runs in the last five overs and ended at 155/8 in 20 overs. David stayed unbeaten on 48 off 21 balls, with four boundaries and four sixes. Ali Khan, Corne Dry, and Adam Zampa returned with two wickets each.

The Knight Riders’ innings began on a tragic note as they lost their first three wickets for only two runs. They looked in major trouble and didn’t seem to find any rhythm to make a comeback. The New York bowling attack constantly kept taking wickets while Knight Riders looked out of options. New York finally restricted the Knight Riders to only 50 runs in 14 overs. Unmukt Chand (26) was the only player to reach double figures in the Knight Riders line-up. Nosthush Kenjinge, Ehsan Adil, Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada, and Kieron Pollard ended with two wickets each. MI New York clinched their first MLC 2023 victory.
