Match Preview:

A desperate Pakistan will take on a roaring South African team in Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. The Men in Green have suffered three consecutive losses, including an eight-wicket defeat to Afghanistan. Whereas the Proteas have emerged as one of the most commanding teams in the tournament with a massive 149-run win over Bangladesh.

Pitch Report:

The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has produced balanced wickets with an average score of 245. The batters can score runs and capitalise throughout the day. At the same time, fast bowlers can generate some movement and bounce with the new ball, while spinners generally wickets as the ball starts gripping. 

Team Analysis: 


Pakistan has seemed like a shell of the team before the World Cup as Babar Azam and Co. have struggled to get going in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. The Pakistani batting has lacked consistency and failed to score runs at a quick rate. Similarly, the bowling has seemed toothless with no player seeming to find breakthroughs at regular intervals.

South Africa

On the other hand, South Africa has grown into a tournament favourite with a few dominant wins. For the Proteas, their batting has been a massive strength with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Henrich Klassen, Aiden Markram and more scoring fluently. Similarly, their bowling has looked in great form, especially the pacers, who have regularly picked up wickets in the early stage of the innings.

Team News:

Proteas captain Temba Bavuma and fast bowler Lungi Ngidi missed the previous game against Bangladesh due to injury.
