For the seventh fixture of the Major League Cricket 2024 season, San Francisco Unicorns will be pitted against Texas Super Kings on July 11, 12.00 AM IST at Church Street Park in Morrisville.

While Texas is yet to taste victory, the Unicorns kicked off the tournament on the right note.

SFU vs TEX: Team Previews

San Francisco Unicorns

San Francisco Unicorns' tournament-opening game against the Los Angeles Knight Riders in Dallas turned out to be a dominant outing for the former. They bowled well to restrict LAKR to 165 runs total before Finn Allen went ballistic in the chase.

He scored 63 off 27 deliveries to ensure the Unicorns are off to a flyer start. Moreover, Matthew Short's fiery contribution of 58 (26) steered Unicorns to a successful run chase with four overs left. 

Overall, it was a complete performance from both the departments and hence ahead of the upcoming game against Texas, the Unicorns will count themselves as favourites.

Texas Super Kings

On the other hand, Texas Super Kings are struggling to find their footing into the MLC 2024 edition. After losing a close game to LAKR in the tournament opener, Texas were saved by rain gods in the following game against Washington Freedom.

Skipper Faf du Plessis' century resulted in 203 runs in the first innings total for Texas, and it appeared good enough until Travis Head and Steve Smith unleashed carnage in the powerplay. 

Head's 32 (12) and Smith's 26 (13) blistering knocks steered Washington to 64 runs on board in just the first four overs before rain interrupted play.  Due to a weak drainage system, the game couldn't resume and both teams were awarded a point each. 

However, it's safe to say, had the game resumed, Washington would have walked all over Texas in no time. Hence, the Super Kings will remain under a lot of pressure against the Unicorns.

The pitch at Church Street Park generally provides a fair contest between bat and ball. However, this MLC 2024 season, the surface has favoured the batters to a larger extent. The powerplay period will be crucial for both sides and with the looming threat of rain, chasing is a good option.
