MLC Announces T20 Schedule In US For 2024 Season

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (IANS) – The Major League Cricket (MLC) on May 7 announced the schedule for the upcoming 2024 season, the second edition of a milestone event in the history of T20 cricket in the United States. The season promises an exhilarating lineup of matches featuring some of the world’s best international players and the nation’s top domestic talent.

Building on the momentum of its inaugural 2023 season, MLC has extended the tournament, due to demand, adding an extra six league matches. The four-game playoff series is to be hosted in Grand Prairie, Texas.

-The 2024 season will commence with two matches across the country on July 5, headlined by MLC’s reigning champions, MI New York facing the 2023 runners-up Seattle Orcas. The match will be played at Church Street Park in Morrisville.

-The Texas Super Kings, spearheaded by South African Faf du Plessis, will take on West Indian Sunil Narine’s LA Knight Riders at the purpose-built Grand Prairie Stadium in Grand Prairie, later in the evening.

-The opening weekend will also feature the Australians-stacked Washington Freedom featuring Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, and coach Ricky Ponting, facing MI New York on July 6.

-The San Francisco Unicorns, bolstered by hard-hitting opening New Zealand batter Finn Allen, will host the LA Knight Riders on July 7 at Grand Prairie Stadium, TX.

The Major League Cricket’s CEO, Vijay Srinivasan, said he can’t wait to see the passion and enthusiasm come to life with cricket fans across the country for the second season of Major League Cricket.

In addition to the highly anticipated matches, MLC remains committed to supporting the long-term infrastructure to foster the growth of local cricket communities further while strengthening cricket’s presence in the US.

“Last year, we unveiled MLC at the newly upgraded Church Street Park in Morrisville, North Carolina, and the brand-new Grand Prairie Stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas, which will both once again co-host the 2024 tournament, building on the impact of season one in those communities,” Srinivasan said.

“These venues will deliver world-class pitches and a vibrant atmosphere to support the overall MLC fan experience. Moreover, we are committed to exploring expansion opportunities with new cricket venues to support our six teams’ growing American fanbase,” he said.
