^ hope so, Isnaad! If you didn't pick Taylor and Masakadza, I would have, they were on my shortlist. All the best!

Very good Squad. Good Openers, Great middle order batters and an even better selection of Pace bowling All Rounders. Good Opening bowlers as well.

Major weakness in my opinion is Spin bowling

Thanks for the opinion Jadukor! Yes I sort of planned it that way, have part time spinners in D.Hussey & Stirling who are more than capable spinners in T20 and have a good economy as well. Also, got Adil Rashid, the leggie who has been fairly consistent in the County Friends Life T20.

Even Rohit Sharma can chip in if needed.

I'm eager to see playing XI as I think this team has the potential to rank among the best

This is a really good team, a lot of hard hitters. Little weak on the bowling side.

Ready for our upcoming match?

I'm pretty sure this is going to be the hardest match for me in the round-stages.

Sad that we couldn't beat the Washington Nationals. But a great game nonetheless.

Disappointed with AB's innings Expected him to be flying, very unlike AB to be going well below 100.

And specifically started with Mitchell Marsh instead of Samit to provide more batting power in the lower half, could not do much.

And didn't expect Hilfenhaus to go for almost 10 an over whose career economy rate is around 6.5.

Can't wait for the next game.

Lost the 2nd game by 5 runs to Miami Heat.

Serious pressure to win the remaining matches.

Next game against Denver Broncos.

It's very irritating to lose two games by 4 & 5 runs.

LA Kings recorded their maiden win in the MLC with a thumping 58 runs victory over Denver Broncos. Adil Rashid was MoM for his fig of 4/18.

Glad to have won my only home match.

Congrats on the first crushing win.

And you too have only 1 home game? You were suppose to let me know about that. I fixed most of that. Fixed yours too. Now you have 1 more home game to go against the Cowboys.

Isnaad, yes. He's risen up to the occasion and grabbed his opportunity. I didn't think he would feature in the XI but since the game against Nationals, he has done pretty well.

Dilscoop, thanks for another home game

LA Kings lost to KC Chiefs by 8 wickets

Qualifying for the playoffs pretty much impossible now.

Nevertheless, very good show by the Kings

I'm sure Kings will be even better in the upcoming matches

We won our last match at home but Denver Broncos won their match under the guidance of the new GM. So we don't progress any further.

It was a good fight but the early losses, by 4 & 5 runs, did it for us IMO.

But we will be back next season, stronger & tougher.

Till then, keep partying like Paris Hilton and Prince Harry!

Cheers
