ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: NZ vs PAK – Weather Forecast, 4th November, Bengaluru
NZ vs PAK match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will take place in Bengaluru on Saturday.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will witness its first and final virtual quarter-final game between Pakistan and New Zealand at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday. Both teams badly want a win to make their case for the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 stronger than others. New Zealand need just one win to qualify for the semi-finals, while Pakistan need to win their remaining games and New Zealand to lose all their remaining matches in the league round.
New Zealand will have another chance against Sri Lanka on November 9 in Bengaluru, but a win against Pakistan will release the pressure from Kiwis’ camp. On the other hand, Pakistan also cannot afford to lose any game, even if they win against New Zealand, they will have to hope Kiwis lose their final league game against Sri Lanka and win their final game against England in Kolkata.
