Marcus Stoinis Joins Texas Super Kings Ahead of MLC Season 2

Star Australian cricketer Marcus Stoinis is gearing up for an exciting new chapter in his career as he prepares to join the Texas Super Kings for the upcoming season of Major League Cricket (MLC). This move follows Stoinis’s stellar performance in the IPL 2024, where he showcased his prowess while playing for Lucknow Super Giants, especially against Chennai Super Kings.

In a remarkable display of skill, Stoinis delivered a scintillating century against CSK, leaving spectators in awe of his talent. Now, he is set to don the same yellow jersey in the American cricket landscape. Stoinis continues to be a dominant force in the shortest format of the game at 34 years old with his 35th birthday just around the corner in August 2024.

Although not holding a central contract with Cricket Australia, Stoinis’s performance in the IPL 2024 was nothing short of exceptional. In 14 games, he accumulated 388 runs at an average of 32.33, while also contributing with four wickets. His outstanding season for LSG has undoubtedly raised expectations for his upcoming stint in MLC.

This will mark Stoinis’s second season in the MLC, having previously featured for the San Francisco Unicorns. With his experience and skill set, the star all-rounder is determined to deliver his best performance yet.
