Match Details

Match: World Cup ODI 2023, NZ vs PAK, Match 35

Date: Saturday, November 4, 2023

Time: 10:30 AM IST

Venue: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

 

Pitch and Weather Report

A sluggish pitch, fast outfield, and shorter boundaries make M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, one of the best batting venues in the world.  The pitch tends to slow down as the match progresses. Batsmen can try out their shots on this wicket. We have seen various high-scoring battles in recent times on this venue, and batters find it easy to play on this pitch where there is little room for the bowlers. The team batting first will try to add 320 runs on the board to give some relief to their bowlers to restrict the run chase.

Bengaluru will have clear skies, and the match is expected to be played on a warm and comfortable evening.

Match Prediction

New Zealand started their World Cup campaign with a bang but eventually lost confidence. Pakistan on the other side failed to make an impact on its opponents in spite of winning three matches in the World Cup. Thus we expect the BlackCaps to win this match.
