The Pat Cummins-led Australia will take on Babar Azam's Pakistan in match No. 18 of the World Cup 2023 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Friday, October 20. The two teams have suffered hiccups in their short journey in the tournament so far and that's what makes the contest between them a must-watch.

While Pakistan's unbeaten streak in the tournament was snapped by India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Australia, on the other hand, claimed their first win of the edition after they emerged victorious against Sri Lanka in Lucknow.

Pakistan are fourth on the points table with four points to their credit and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of -0.137 whereas the five-time ODI world champions Australia only have two points and a net run rate of -0.734. Both teams have not played an ODI against each other lately and hence it might turn out to be a riveting clash.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru Pitch Report

The wicket at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium is traditionally known to assist batters. With short boundary dimensions, batters are expected to dominate the contest yet again and bowlers might have to grind really hard to get the results in their favour. The ball tends to fly off the willow at the venue and hence it is one of the high-scoring grounds in India.
