Australia (AUS) and Bangladesh (BAN) will be facing each other in their last group stage match of the tournament in Maharashtra State Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. The match is not that relevant for Australia, but is very important for Bangladesh, considering that their spot in the Champions Trophy 2025 depends on their performance in the match.
Australia has already qualified for the semifinal of the ODI World Cup 2023 and is set to face South Africa in the knockout match. In the process, they registered their entry in the Champions Trophy 2025. After winning an incredible game of cricket against Afghanistan, the former World Champions extended their winning streak to 6 wins in a row in the ongoing World Cup.
On the other hand, Bangladesh has a tough task ahead of them. The 2015 Quarterfinalists would be eying to win the game against Australia. Even if they are to lose the game, they would be hoping to give a tough fight and have a good run rate in their favour after the loss so that they do not come under problems for a spot in the Champions Trophy 2025.

AUS vs SA, ODI World Cup 2023: Pitch Report
Pune has provided flat decks in ODIs over the years. In the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, teams that have batted first have found it easy to score runs. With enough scoreboard pressure, the teams defending the totals have been able to put pressure on the chasing sides. The trend has been observed during the matches between New Zealand and South Africa, and the latest one between England and Netherlands.
The surfaces in Pune offer some spin. But they are usually good for batting with the ball coming on nicely to the bat. Teams winning the toss would like to bat first and post a big total on the board. The boundaries are shorter, and the outfield is quick. Batters love playing at the venue. Pacers must be able to make the best use of their variations to stop the batters.
