Faf du Plessis, Devon Conway, Mitchell Santner, Ambati Rayudu and David Miller are among Texas Super Kings' signings for the upcoming MLC 2023. As reported earlier, the side will be coached by Stephen Fleming who is also in charge of Super Kings in the IPL and SA20.
Conway, Santner and Rayudu will reunite with Fleming under whom they won IPL 2023 last month. Rayudu, who had retired from the IPL after that final, is set to feature in his first franchise league outside of India. Conway was the Player of the Match in the rain-hit three-day final, scoring a 25-ball 47 in CSK's successful chase of 171 in 15 overs in Ahmedabad. Dwayne Bravo, who was Chennai Super Kings' bowling coach during their recent run to the IPL title, will return as a player for the MLC competition.
The IPL winners will be joined by Australia's seam-bowling allrounder Daniel Sams, who had recently opted not to take a state contract with New South Wales for better opportunities in franchise T20 cricket.
Gerald Coetzee, who was the third-highest wicket-taker in the inaugural SA20 - and the highest for Jo'burg Super Kings - with 17 strikes, will be a Super King in MLC as well.
During the MLC draft in March, Super Kings had signed up former international players Sami Aslam and Rusty Theron. Nineteen-year-old Saiteja Mukkamalla, who is currently with the USA squad in Zimbabwe for the ODI World Cup Qualifier, was also among the picks.
Eric Simmons and Albie Morkel will be assistants to head coach Fleming. The pair had also worked with Fleming in the SA20, where Jo'burg Super Kings lost to Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the semi-final in Centurion.
MLC 2023 is a six-team event, scheduled from July 14 to July 31 at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Super Kings will play the tournament opener against Los Angeles Knight Riders.
