On Friday, October 20, Australia (AUS) will face Pakistan (PAK) in the 18th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 at Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Australia’s World Cup campaign got traction with a crucial victory over Sri Lanka. Zampa led the Australian bowlers in the field, capturing four key wickets to limit Sri Lanka to 209 runs. Marsh and Inglis both hit half-centuries in the second innings, powering the side to the target in just 35.2 overs, marking a decisive triumph for the Aussies.
Pakistan, however, is coming off a significant loss to India, their bitter rivals, going into this match. Pakistan scored a pitiful 191 runs after a bright start at the bat due to their middle-order problems. Although Hasan Ali contributed one wicket and Shaheen Afridi claimed two in India’s innings, the Pakistani team had a difficult time playing.

Pitch Report: One of India’s most hitter-friendly tracks can be found on Bengaluru’s field. It gives the stroke-makers a good balance between bounce and speed. It’s a batter’s paradise, made the more alluring by the short boundaries and quick outfield. As the game progresses, though, spinners who can extract turn and use a variety of variations can find themselves having an impact on the action.
