AUS vs PAK Preview: 

  • Mitchell Marsh had a challenging start to the competition, posting a duck against India and managing just 7 runs against South Africa. Nevertheless, he consistently demonstrates confidence in his abilities and stands out as one of the most formidable power hitters in the tournament. This was evident in his impressive half-century while opening the innings against Sri Lanka. We believe Marsh is a strong contender to become Australia’s highest run-scorer against Pakistan.
  • Mitchell Starc boasts an impressive international record, amassing over 630 wickets, including 225 in this particular format. The left-arm pace bowler has been meticulously managed over the past year to ensure he’s in peak condition for this crucial tournament. With his track record, he’s a compelling choice to be Australia’s top wicket-taker in Bengaluru.
  • Turning to the Pakistani side, Babar Azam showcases an outstanding average of 57.02 in ODI cricket. As the captain, he has notched 19 centuries and 29 half-centuries in this format, demonstrating his ability to make substantial contributions, as evidenced by his fifty against India. Azam is primed to confront Australia’s formidable bowling attack, and we anticipate him emerging as Pakistan’s leading run-scorer in this encounter.
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi, renowned as one of the most intimidating opening bowlers in the 2023 Cricket World Cup, delivered a performance of 2-36 in the match against India. With a striking strike-rate of 26 from 46 ODI appearances, we anticipate Shaheen to claim the title of Pakistan’s top wicket-taker in this game.
  • With Mitchell Starc already boasting 5 wickets in the tournament, we recommend placing your faith in him to secure more than 1.5 wickets in this upcoming fixture.

Weather & Pitch Report


We can expect some sunny spells mixed in with some cloud cover in Bengaluru across this game. The temperature will be in the mid-high 20s throughout this match. 

Pitch Report:

This will be a good batting surface and we expect to see a par score of 320+ at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday. There should be more turn from this pitch than some of the others used in this tournament.

Toss Prediction: 

The last ODI at this ground was in 2020 so there is not a great deal of recent data to go on. With humidity levels expected to rise across the game, we predict that both teams will want to field first.

AUS vs PAK Team NEWS: 

AUS Team News: 

Despite facing defeat in their initial two World Cup 2023 matches and enduring significant pressure from pundits, Australia stuck with the identical lineup for their triumphant performance against Sri Lanka. We anticipate that the same eleven players will be chosen for this upcoming match, as Travis Head has not fully recovered from his injury.

PAK Team News: 

Pakistan maintained their lineup unchanged before their loss to India in Ahmedabad, and we do not foresee any alterations in the roster for this upcoming game, as no injuries have been reported. Pakistan tends to exhibit stability under the leadership of Babar Azam, avoiding frequent player changes.
