The 9th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 will be played between Pakistan and Sri Lanka on Tuesday, October 10 at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad.
Pakistan kicked off their ICC World Cup 2023 journey with an 82-run victory against Netherlands. Despite the win, their batting performance fell short of expectations and requires improvement. While their bowling remains strong, the spinners need to up their game.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, suffered a defeat in their opening match against South Africa, which happened to be the highest-scoring game. They appeared lost against South Africa’s strong batting lineup and must elevate their performance if they hope to secure a victory.
