World Cup ODI 2023

SA vs. AFG, Match 42



South Africa will be crossing swords with Afghanistan for the 42nd match of the World Cup ODI 2023. The game is scheduled at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday, November 10. 

 This will be the last game for both sides and South Africa will try to regain some confidence by winning this game after a humiliating loss against the hosts India at the iconic Eden Gardens, Kolkata. While chasing a total of 327 runs, the side was bowled out for just 83 runs as Jadeja shone with a fifer. The Temba Bavuma-led side is sitting in second place in the points table with six wins from eight games and has qualified for the Semifinals. They lost only to the Netherlands and India in this event, apart from that they have thrashed every team they faced in this tournament. With their team being one of the best-performing ones in this tournament, and also qualified for the next stage, we hope they can put on a great show against the Afghan Pathans. 

In the meantime, Afghanistan have impressed a lot with their stellar performance and fighting nature in every match. They are still in the fight for the semis which is a huge thing for Shahidi and Co.

Pitch and Weather Report

The weather in Ahmedabad will be on the warmer side. The surface of the Narendra Modi stadium is flat and tends to slow down when the game progresses. The skipper winning the toss will be looking forward to batting first and posting a score of 300 or above on the board in order to give their bowlers enough room to defend the total.

The BlackCaps are back for a hunt after an unfortunate loss in the finals of the 2019 World Cup. On the other side, Afghanistan would be focusing on creating an example for future generations by continuing to defeat stronger sides. We hope New Zealand to find the winning ways in a tough fight with Afghanistan.
