Pakistan and South Africa will square off in Match 26 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup in Chennai. After winning their opening two games, Pakistan has since lost its last three against Afghanistan, Australia, and India.
South Africa has defeated Bangladesh and England in their last two games and has won four of their last five matches. Over the past week, Pakistan has been playing badly.
Despite some notable performances from its star players, its squad has not had enough strength to match the strongest teams. This Friday encounter is going to be extremely difficult.
All teams in this event can win, but the great teams are distinguished by their ability to bounce back from setbacks. Despite their humiliating loss to the Netherlands, South Africa has proven their depth and will be confident going into this encounter.

The side batting second has won three of the four 2023 Cricket World Cup matches held at this location. Therefore, if either skipper wins the toss, we anticipate they will decide to field first.
Thus far in the tournament, the MA Chidambaram Stadium has hosted a number of close games. We anticipate that during the second innings of the game, the batting wicket will somewhat flatten.
This World Cup match will be the final one held at this location. In the previous encounter, we witnessed Afghanistan’s spinners fully utilizing the spin track.
The characteristics of the match should be the same. The ball will spin, but hitters can take a few pitches to become comfortable before taking huge swings.
Chennai is expected to have a hot and muggy afternoon and evening with humidity levels consistently exceeding 70%. Throughout the first few hours of the match, the temperature will rise to about 31 degrees.
