San Francisco Unicorns vs Texas Super Kings Predictions

The Unicorns got off to a brilliant start by smashing the Knight Riders and banking a massive net run rate. The Super Kings have found batting form but their bowlers have yet to find a firm footing. This should be a solid win for the Unicorns. 

  • San Francisco Unicorns’ Finn Allen smashed five sixes and four fours in his innings of 63 against the Knight Riders.
  • San Francisco Unicorns’ Matthew Short scored 58 off 26 balls against the Knight Riders.
  • Texas Super Kings’ Faf du Plessis scored 100 off 58 balls against Washington Freedom.
  • Texas Super Kings’ Devon Conway has scored 53 & 39 in his 2 MLC innings.


The teams have met just once, which was in their league clash last season. The Unicorns scored 171/8 off their 20 overs, and the Super Kings knocked off the winning runs in the last over with three wickets in hand.

San Francisco Unicorns Form

After missing the playoffs last season, the Unicorns were eager to start the 2024 MLC season with a win.

The Unicorns’ bowlers struck early to limit the Knight Riders to 44/3 inside the seventh over, Brody Couch bowling superbly (2/24, econ 6.00). The lower middle-order rallied to lift the score to 165/6 off their 20 overs.

Their exciting top-order pair of Finn Allen (63 off 37 balls) and Matthew Short (58 off 26 balls) added 116 for the second wicket off 11 overs, setting up the middle order to knock off the winning runs with 28 balls in hand.

San Francisco Unicorns Team News

San Francisco Unicorns are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

Texas Super Kings Form

After losing to the Knight Riders by 12 runs in their first match, the Super Kings came out firing against the Washington Freedom. 

Devon Conway (39 off 26 balls) and Faf du Plessis (100 off 58 balls) added 109 off the first 10 overs, setting up the middle order to take them through to 203/5 off their 20 overs. 

Rain ended the match early, but not before Washington Freedom had hammered 62 runs off four overs without losing a wicket, which would have dented the confidence of the Super Kings bowlers.

Texas Super Kings Team News

The Super Kings are in good form with the bat but they might look to shuffle their bowling attack.


I am backing San Francisco Unicorns to win. I am also backing Finn Allen to top score for San Francisco Unicorns.

Faf du Plessis is a good bet to top score for the Texas Super Kings.
