The MLC (Major League Cricket) 2024 edition is quickly gaining momentum and for the 8th fixture of the tournament, Seattle Orcas will face Washington Freedom at Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas on July 12 at 6.00 AM IST. 

SEA vs WAS: Team Previews

Seattle Orcas

The Seattle Orcas have had a mixed start to their campaign, having won and lost a game each so far. 

In the previous fixture against Los Angeles Knight Riders, Ryan Rickelton stole the show with a gritty 66-ball century that helped his team wrap up the 169-run chase on the penultimate delivery of the game.

Despite losing just one wicket in the chase, the Orcas took the game deep and almost choked with 3 needed off the final over. Hence, such instances need to be avoided by Seattle in the future. 

Washington Freedom is a formidable side and will ask the right questions. Hence, Heinrich Klaasen and Co must stay vigilant and step up as a unit to advance against Washington.

Washington Freedom

On the other hand, Washington Freedom have been unlucky as their second game got washed out due to rain. Even in the tournament opener, they dodged a bullet with the results turning in their favour after the DLS method was enforced.

Chasing 155 runs against MI New York, Steve Smith stamped his authority with 46 off 28 runs knock, and before rain halted the game, Washington had 55 runs on board at the loss of one wicket. They were four runs ahead as per DLS calculations and were awarded two points for the game.

Washington Freedom have potentially the most fierce and balanced unit at their helm this tournament. Travis Head and Smith are in the form of their lives whereas Glenn Maxwell, Marco Jansen and Saurabh Netravalkar have also raised the standards.

Hence, it's safe to say that Washington Freedom will be the team to beat this MLC 2024 edition.
