    After a rollicking 1st edition of the Major League Cricket 2023, we have the winners of the league. MI New York have emerged out as the champions in the 1st edition of the tournament after a clinical final victory versus Seattle Orcas.

    Nicholas Pooran activated his beast mode in the finals at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas as he slammed his way to a 137*-run knock in just 55 balls. He smashed 13 sixes and 10 fours and had a fabulous strike-rate of 249.09 in the course of his innings.

    Cameron Gannon of Seattle Orcas bagged the player of the series award for taking 11 wickets.

    Quinton De Kock’s knock of 87 runs in the finals went in vain as ultimately MI New York had the last laugh. The South African wicket-keeper batter was one of the key batters of Seattle Orcas and he made sure his team reaches the finals.
