Seattle Orcas Preview

The Orcas team had a night to forget when they faced Los Angeles Knight Riders in their last fixture.

Improving the mistakes from the past & bouncing back stronger will be their motive in today’s fixture.

In the death overs, they will expect a good show from  Shubham Ranjane, Imad Wasim, and Parnell.

In their bowling department, all the key bowlers will be in scan of the management after their disastrous show in the last fixture. Their go-to-bowlers Imad Wasim and Cameron Gannon must return with early wickets. Parnell & Andrew Tye who conceeded huge runs will have to keep their bowling under check. At no cost, they can go on giving away huge runs if winning is on their mind. The side would expect good bowling spells from Jayasuriya and Harmeet Singh in the death overs.
