TSK vs WAF MLC 2024: Season 2 of the Cognizant Major League Cricket has begun in full swing, with teams clashing for the ultimate prize. In the three matches played till now, fans have got to witness some closely fought battles. However, Texas Super Kings fans faced an early disappointment as they lost their first clash of the season at the hands of LA Knight Riders by 12 runs.

In their previous clash, Devon Convoy was the pick of the batters as he smashed the first fifty for his team in the season. Despite Conway’s valiant efforts, other TSK batter’s lack of intent and ability to form a solid partnership cost them the match.

Having said that, the Men in ‘Yellove’ led by Faf du Plessis will look to find the right momentum going ahead in the tournament. As they prepare to face Washington Freedom in the 5th match of the ongoing MLC 2024, coached by Stephen Fleming, TSK will look to rectify their mistakes.

On the other hand, Washington Freedom playing their first match of the season would like to begin with a victory to their name. With players like Rachin Ravindra, Steve Smith, Travis Head, and Glenn Maxwell, WAF will give the Super Kings a formidable fight.
