Pakistan Bowlers Thrashed by Kane Williamson and Rachin Ravindra in ODI World Cup 2023

In the 35th match of the ODI World Cup 2023 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, won the toss and chose to bowl first against Kane Williamson’s New Zealand. This decision set the stage for an intense clash that saw Williamson and Rachin Ravindra brutally dismantle Pakistan’s bowling attack.

Williamson and Ravindra showcased their prowess, skillfully guiding the Kiwis to a remarkable 200-run mark in just 30 overs, while losing only one wicket in the process. The phase from the 20th to the 30th over witnessed New Zealand amassing 86 runs, with Haris Rauf and Agha Salman bearing the brunt of their aggressive batting. The internet erupted with reactions as fans watched in awe while Pakistan’s bowlers struggled to contain the Kiwi onslaught, conceding boundaries and sixes.

Pakistan’s hopes were pinned on this game to secure a spot in the semifinals of the prestigious tournament. In contrast, New Zealand aimed to regain their momentum by clinching a much-needed victory.

Babar Azam, explaining the decision to bowl first, cited the moisture on the pitch at the beginning of the match. He expressed confidence in Pakistan’s bowling and their ability to execute their plans. Babar also mentioned a lineup change, with Hasan Ali replacing Usama Mir. Despite his form, he emphasized his determination to enjoy the game.

On the other side, Kane Williamson revealed that Ish Sodhi was brought in to replace Matt Henry, while he himself took the place of Will Young in the squad. The surface, he noted, appeared different from their expectations, and they aimed to set a competitive target while adapting to the conditions. 

Despite a few injuries in the camp, the Kiwi players were enthusiastic about the challenge, especially in light of the changing conditions.
