Uncountable speculations and predictions are on the way ahead of the much-anticipated match between India and Pakistan. Before unfolding pitch details for the IND vs PAK match, we mention that this highly anticipated match will be played on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Kindly note that the match will start at 2 pm. Now let’s get back to the topic, people have been anticipating the pitch whether it would be black or red. Yes, it is under high scrutiny of cricket lovers on which pitch the match will be played. As Narendra Modi Stadium has two kinds of pitches one is made of red soil and the other is of black soil, both demonstrate different cricketing conditions. Therefore, fans are very curious to know which pitch would be used for the India-Pakistan match. Let’s delve deep into the details and find out more details.
Match number 12 of ICC World Cup 2023, will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where we have seen two pitches one is made up of red soil while the other is made up of black soil. Let us tell you a major difference between the pitches of red soil and black soil. If the match is played on a red soil pitch, it will be a leather hunt for bowlers as red soil is very favorable for batting just like it is in Wankhede Stadium of Mumbai. While the black soil can show a major turn that means black soil will favor bowlers, especially spinners.
Both teams are good at playing spin but still, India has one hand up in bowling conditions too because of Kuldeep Yadav’s form and Ashwin’s experience. In the first match, Ravindra Jadeja almost collapsed the batting lineup of Australia with his spin. But we can not completely ignore Pakistan’s Shadab Khan and Nawaz who are also high-rated spinners.
So far, both Pakistan and India have been unbeaten in this tournament. Pakistan is coming after beating Sri Lanka in a big run chase and the Netherlands, while India has won against Afghanistan and Australia. It will be an el-classico match of the tournament. If the red soil-pitch will be used in the match the game will aid in run-scoring. Not to mention, batsmen have dominated the proceedings in most of the games, as was evidenced in the recent match played at the Narendra Modi Stadium between England vs New Zealand.
