The India vs Pakistan encounter will thrill cricket fans at the massive Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday, October 14.
Both the teams are equal so far in the tournament. Where India has won against Australia and Afghanistan. Whereas Pakistan was successful in defeating Netherlands and Sri Lanka. The excitement among the fans is at its peak and they are waiting to see both the legends of the game making waves in the World Cup.
The focus will be on overhead conditions as fans will not want rain to disrupt such a big match. Only one innings was possible between these two teams in Asia Cup 2023 as the match got canceled due to continuous rain.
Bowling first to win in Ahmedabad
Another aspect which will remain in the eyes of cricket. The pitch on which the match will be played. Ahmedabad has hosted only one game in the ODI World Cup 2023. Which happened between England and New Zealand. The Kiwi team achieved the target of 283 runs with nine wickets in the 37th over. Whereas the pitch was a bit sticky from above. For this reason, the captain who wins the toss will choose to bowl first keeping this in mind.
However, some pitches in Narendra Modi Stadium are like this. Which are low and slow. Which are suited for spin-bowling. It will be interesting to see what kind of pitch welcomes the teams on Saturday.
