Washington Freedom and MI New York clashed against each other in the eliminator match in the ongoing Major League Cricket (MLC) at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas on Thursday, July 27. The fans witnessed a low-scoring contest between the two teams, however, New York had the last laugh as they won the match by 16 runs.

It won’t be wrong to say that the hero of New York’s win was their star young batter Dewald Brevis who displayed a magnificent and responsible knock of 57 runs off 41 balls which included 4 fours and 3 sixes. With this outstanding knock, Brevis helped his team to achieve a respectable total of 141 runs. He also talked about his knock in the post-match presentation.

“I am so happy at the moment. It is good to see the result going our way. I really enjoyed it, I don’t mind where I bat, I am happy to contribute. Polly gave me some wise words and that helped me. I kept playing my shots and enjoyed the moment. I thought whenever the ball is in my area, I am going. Everyone chipped in on this game.” Brevis said in the post-match presentation.

Brilliant bowling performance by MI New York

Talking about the match, Washington won the toss and elected to field first and the decision proved right as they dismissed the first two batters of New York on the score of just 24 runs. The bowlers kept the line and length of the deliveries very tight due to which New York’s batters were unable to open their hands. 

However, Brevis’ knock and a quick (23 run off 12 balls) cameo from Tim David helped the team to set a target of 142 runs for Washington. In reply, Freedom had a horrible start as Matthew Short on the score of just 14 runs. Later, the remaining top-order batters got the start but couldn’t convert it into a big one.

The middle-order failed horribly and the required run-rate kept getting increased. With the help of brilliant bowling performances from Trent Boult and Nosthush Kenjige, New York restricted Washington on the score of just 125 runs. Boult picked up 4 wickets while Kenjige took 3 wickets.
