AUS vs PAK Betting Tips

  • Mitchell Marsh had a disappointing start to the competition with a duck against India and only 7 runs against South Africa. However, he always backs his ability and is one of the strongest hitting batters in the tournament and this was seen with his half-century at the top of the order against Sri Lanka. Marsh is our tip for Australia’s highest run scorer against Pakistan. Mitchell Starc has over 630 international wickets with 225 of them coming in this format and the left-arm pace bowler has been well managed over the last 12 months to ensure he is in peak condition for this tournament. He is a strong choice for Australia’s top wicket taker in Bengaluru.
  • Babar Azam averages 57.02 in ODI cricket and the captain has scored 19 hundreds and 29 half-centuries in this format. He showed he can make a good contribution against the top teams with a fifty against India and he will be relishing the opportunity to take on the strong Australia bowling attack. Azam is our pick for Pakistan’s highest run scorer against Australia. Shaheen Shah Afridi took 2-36 in the defeat against India and is one of the most feared opening bowlers in this 2023 Cricket World Cup. With a strike-rate of 26 from 46 ODI appearances, we expect Shaheen to be Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • With 5 wickets already in the tournament, we recommend backing Mitchell Starc to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

AUS vs PAK ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Match 18 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup sees Australia and Pakistan go head to head on Friday afternoon in Bengaluru. Although they have won the tournament on five previous occasions, Australia were beaten by India and South Africa in their opening two games before finally getting their first win with a 5 wicket victory against Sri Lanka on Monday. Pakistan beat the Netherlands and Sri Lanka before going down to their first defeat of the tournament against India on Saturday. Read on as we preview this match. The fixture gets underway at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium at 14:00 local time.

The win over Sri Lanka was a big relief for Australia but was not without moments when it looked like they could be in trouble and another defeat was in play. However, Australia are a powerful team and they will fancy their chances of making it two wins in a row.

Pakistan were well beaten by India in Match 12 of the competition and they will be keen to return to winning ways again as soon as possible. Their top four all made scores of between 20-50 and they will need bigger scores if they are to challenge Australia in this game.

AUS vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

The last ODI at this ground was in 2020 so there is not a great deal of recent data to go on. With humidity levels expected to rise across the game, we predict that both teams will want to field first.

AUS vs PAK Pitch Report

This will be a good batting surface and we expect to see a par score of 320+ at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday. There should be more turn from this pitch than some of the others used in this tournament.

We have seen spinners turning the game around on this track. Highest target of 328 runs has been chased once here and we can expect another high-scoring thriller match.

Bengaluru Weather Report

We can expect some sunny spells mixed in with some cloud cover in Bengaluru across this game. The temperature will be in the mid-high 20s throughout this match.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

Australia Team News

In spite of losing their first two games in the World Cup 2023 and with plenty of pundits saying they had to win their last match, Australia retained the same team for the victory over Sri Lanka. We expect the same XI to be selected for this game with Travis Head not yet fully fit.

Australia Team Key Players

  • Mitchell Marsh- the powerful right-handed batting all-rounder has enjoyed batting at the top of the order over the last month. He comes into this game after hitting nine fours in his 52 against Sri Lanka.
  • David Warner- the left-handed opener is yet to hit a half-century in the 2023 Cricket World Cup. However, he has a fantastic ODI record and averages 44.56 from 151 innings in this format.
  • Glenn Maxwell - Maxwell finally got some runs off his bat in the last match and now he looks confident as a key all-rounder for the team. Maxwell remained not-out at 31 in 21 deliveries in the last match and he has picked 3 wickets in 3 matches so far.

Australia Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Mitchell Marsh 82 78 2290 102* 33.67 93.85 1 18
David Warner 153 151 6462 179 44.56 96.18 20 31
Glenn Maxwell 132 121 3544 108 33.43 123.65 2 23
  • Mitchell Starc- the experienced left-arm pace bowler added another two wickets to his ODI tally with both dismissals coming after the start of the 33rd over. He is a dangerous bowler throughout an innings.
  • Adam Zampa- if Australia are to be successful in this tournament then they will need their premier spinner to be on form. He took the Player of the Match Award with 4-47 against Sri Lanka.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

Pakistan Team News

There were no changes for Pakistan ahead of their defeat to India in Ahmedabad and we are not anticipating any different players on the teamsheet ahead of this game with no injuries reported. Pakistan do not chop and change much under the captaincy of Babar Azam.

Pakistan Team Key Players

  • Babar Azam- the skipper had been in disappointing form over the last month or so in this format but he top scored for his side with 50 runs from 58 balls in the big match against India.
  • Mohammad Rizwan- the keeper-batter is averaging 124 from his three innings in the competition so far. Ahead of Thursday’s game, only Devon Conway has scored more runs in this campaign.

Pakistan Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Babar Azam 111 108 5474 158 57.02 88.86 19 29
Mohammad Rizwan 68 62 1941 131* 40.43 89.20 3 13
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi- the left-arm pace bowler was the best from the attack in the loss last Saturday. He dismissed both openers, Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma, against India. 
  • Haris Rauf- the 29 year old right-arm fast bowler went wicketless for the first time in the tournament in the defeat against India. However, he already has 5 wickets in the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
  • Mohammad Nawaz - Pakistan’s spin all-rounder has picked 2 wickets and scored 43 runs so far. His spin abilities can prove to be useful on this pitch which favours the spinners especially in the 2nd innings.

Who will win Australia vs Pakistan ODI Match?

There are some excellent players on show from both teams although neither side are expected to reach the final of the tournament. Player for player, we think Australia have more match-winners in their team.

AUS vs PAK Top Team Batsmen

Mitchell Marsh, Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner and Steve Smith are our batting tips for Australia. Former skipper Smith scored a 5-ball duck against Sri Lanka but averages 43.75 in this format. He has not scored a century in this format since September 2022 but did make a score of 74 runs from 60 balls against a strong India side in Rajkot only three innings ago. Labuschagne is a very hard-working right-handed batter who was not in Australia’s original squad for the tournament. However, he has now locked down a place in the side after consistent scores and he comes into this match after hitting 46 and 40 from his last two innings.

For Pakistan, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique and Mohammad Rizwan are our batting recommendations. Opener Shafique was not in the team for the opening game of the tournament but he has hit scores of 113 and 20 since coming into the side against Sri Lanka and India. The 23 year old has a century in ODI cricket and a double century in Test cricket already in his career. Left-handed Imam has hit nine hundreds and 19 half-centuries across his ODI career. He averages 49.01 from 68 innings and is due a big score with a top score of only 36 so far in the tournament. 

AUS vs PAK Top Team Bowlers

For Australia, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are our bowling suggestions. Captain Cummins picked up only 1 wicket and conceded over 100 runs across the first two games of the tournament but was very impressive against Sri Lanka. The right-arm fast medium bowler took 2-32 from 7 overs with the skipper dismissing both of the openers on Monday. Hazlewood is a brilliantly consistent bowler and although he went wicketless in the last match he still produced a maiden over. He bowls a length which is hard to attack and took 3-38 in his first game of the tournament against a very strong Indian batting line-up.

Shaheen Shaha Afridi, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan are our bowling choices for Pakistan. Ali has been in good form since coming back into the team to replace the injured Naseem Shah a couple of weeks before the tournament. He will be full of confidence in this game after picking up the prized wicket of Virat Kohli in the last game against India. Spinner Shadab will enjoy bowling on this surface and went wicketless for the first time in the competition in the defeat to India. His best figures in this format are 4-27 and he could have success against an attacking Australian batting line-up.

🏆 Australia vs Pakistan Prediction

This looks like being a very close and entertaining game between two teams who will be desperate to avoid defeat in Bengaluru. Pakistan will need either all of their world class players to be on top form or for some of their other players to step up in this match if they are to get on top of Australia who will be full of confidence in this game. Australia will look to attack Pakistan from the first ball with both bat and ball and if they sense any weakness they will go even harder. We are expecting a tight contest but are backing Australia to win.
