IND vs PAK Preview:
- In the thrilling contest against Afghanistan, Rohit Sharma was named the Player of the Match for his remarkable performance, amassing 131 runs from just 84 balls in Match 9. As India’s captain, Rohit now boasts an impressive record of 31 One Day International (ODI) centuries, with seven of them achieved in the Cricket World Cup. Displaying his full range of attacking shots, he showcased his prowess on Wednesday, making him a solid bet to be India’s leading run-scorer against Pakistan.
- On the bowling front, Jasprit Bumrah played a crucial role by claiming the opening wicket in the seventh over against Afghanistan and later securing three additional wickets from the 45th over onward. The right-arm pace bowler is our top pick for India’s highest wicket-taker in the upcoming match.
- For Pakistan, Mohammad Rizwan demonstrated his skills by taking three catches behind the stumps and delivering a brilliant unbeaten century against Sri Lanka, featuring eight fours and three sixes. While he has been a standout performer in T20Is in recent years, he has now successfully transitioned his skills to ODI cricket, boasting an outstanding average of 80.67 over his last ten innings. The wicketkeeper-batsman is our selection for Pakistan’s top run-scorer in this encounter.
- On the bowling front for Pakistan, Shaheen Shah Afridi stands out with a remarkable ODI strike-rate of 26.1. His impressive record includes six 4-wicket hauls and two 5-wicket hauls in the format, often saving his best for high-stakes matches. We anticipate him being Pakistan’s leading wicket-taker in the upcoming game.
- Considering his impressive ODI track record with a strike-rate of 30.7 from 79 innings, we recommend placing your bets on Jasprit Bumrah to secure over 1.5 wickets in this match.

Weather & Pitch Report:
Saturday’s weather forecast anticipates the temperature staying consistently above 30 degrees throughout the day. Humidity levels are expected to remain relatively stable, hovering around 50% for the duration of the game.
The Narendra Modi Stadium is renowned for its batsman-friendly pitch, and we anticipate a competitive target to be in the vicinity of 330 runs. Additionally, the wicket offers support for both spinners and fast bowlers, promising an exciting battle between bat and ball on this surface.
In the tournament’s inaugural match at this venue, New Zealand secured a convincing 9-wicket victory after opting to field first. Moreover, in the last eight ODIs held in Ahmedabad, the chasing side emerged victorious in five of them. As a result, we predict that both captains will likely prefer to choose to field first in this upcoming game.
IND vs PAK Team NEWS:
IND Team News:
Despite Shubman Gill’s return to the squad following a two-game absence due to illness, it’s unlikely that the right-handed batsman will be hurried back into the team, especially considering Ishan Kishan’s run-a-ball 47 in the previous match. However, in anticipation of a pitch with more spin than Delhi, we expect Ravichandran Ashwin to make a comeback to the lineup.
PAK Team News:
Abdullah Shafique, who took over the opening position from Fakhar Zaman in the match against Sri Lanka, is assured of maintaining his place in the team following his outstanding ODI century on his World Cup debut. We anticipate Pakistan to field an unchanged lineup for this upcoming match.

The last time Pakistan triumphed over India in an ODI was back in June 2017. Over the course of the last six years, India has secured victory against Pakistan four times. While there’s no denying Pakistan’s potential to defeat a formidable Indian side when they are at their best, it’s evident that India is currently leading the way in the tournament, especially in terms of their batting prowess.
If Shaheen Shah Afridi and Babar Azam both deliver outstanding performances, Pakistan stands a chance in Ahmedabad. Nevertheless, our overall prediction leans towards the hosts securing their third consecutive victory in the tournament. Therefore, we are placing our bet on India to emerge as the victors on Saturday.
IND vs PAK Key Players:
The 36-year-old opener displayed an unstoppable performance against Afghanistan, smashing an impressive tally of 16 fours and five sixes before eventually being dismissed while attempting a slog sweep. We anticipate that he will maintain his aggressive approach right from the first ball once more in this upcoming clash.
The right-handed former captain consistently exhibits an aggressive style of play without jeopardizing his wicket. He is currently in exceptional form, as evident from his recent performances in the competition, amassing scores of 85 and an unbeaten 55.
The all-rounder has made a fleeting appearance with the bat in the tournament but enters this match on the back of impressive bowling figures, having taken 1-28 and 2-43 in the previous two matches.
The 29-year-old right-arm fast bowler has already claimed six wickets in the 2023 Cricket World Cup, and notably, he hasn’t allowed more than 40 runs in either of the matches against Australia or Afghanistan.
Having managed just one half-century in his last four ODI innings, the right-handed opener faced considerable pressure on Tuesday. However, he rose to the occasion, delivering an impressive performance with 113 runs from a mere 103 balls.
Despite grappling with lower back issues and cramps during the match against Sri Lanka, the wicketkeeper-batsman’s exceptional resilience shone through as he clinched the Player of the Match Award with a remarkable 131 not out from 121 balls.
On Tuesday, the right-arm pace bowler may have given away the most runs among the Pakistan attack, but he made up for it by consistently taking wickets throughout the innings, securing dismissals in the 2nd, 29th, 31st, and 48th overs.
Shaheen Shah Afridi
The 23-year-old left-arm opening bowler faced challenges in finding his rhythm during the match in Hyderabad against Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, he showcased his consistency by picking up a wicket, extending his streak to 18 successive games with at least one dismissal.
