A high-stakes ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 match between New Zealand and Pakistan will take place on Saturday at the M. Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru.
In order to remain in the running for the semifinals, both clubs will absolutely need to win. Pakistan will look to maintain the momentum it appeared to build after defeating Bangladesh by seven wickets in their previous encounter, but the Kiwis in particular will need to recover after losing three straight games.
