BAN vs AFG World Cup 2023 Match Pitch Report
Bangladesh is gearing up to take on their Asian counterparts, Afghanistan, in their opening match of the ICC World Cup 2023 on Saturday, October 7th at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala. Bangladesh is in dire need of their batting lineup to perform consistently, especially after a series of subpar performances leading up to the World Cup.
In contrast, Afghanistan comes into this match brimming with confidence following their impressive showing in the World Cup warm-up match against Sri Lanka in Guwahati just a few days ago. To get a better grip on what to expect in the BAN vs AFG match at the HPCA Stadium, check out the pitch report below.
Over the course of four ODIs played at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala, the typical first innings total has averaged around 214 runs. Interestingly, in three out of these four matches, the team that bowled first emerged winner. While the average score may suggest a somewhat challenging pitch, it’s worth noting that conditions will favor the batters as the venue is a batting paradise.
However, there will be an early advantage for the fast bowlers as the pitch is likely to provide them with some assistance. Moreover, during the latter part of the game, pacers will again find some assistance from the pitch, while spinners are likely to have a significant impact in the middle overs. The weather forecast for the day indicates a temperature on the cooler side at approximately 23°C, and fortunately, there is no anticipated rainfall, ensuring a rain-free contest.
