The SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) of both teams are:

Team Pakistan Strengths

Pakistan has a lethal fast bowling unit that can give a tough time to any top-class batting order. Pakistan is also led by No. 1 batter Babar Azam who can favor his team. Their opener is also ranked in the batting ranking in the 5th position whose name is Imam-ul-Haq. So their formidable pace attack and decent batting unit is their strength.

Team Pakistan Weaknesses

Their inconsistent fielding, below-par spin attack, and out-of-form top order is their weakness. Their middle-order is so inconsistent and unpredictable which can be their strength as well as weakness. Recently their all-rounder Shadab Khan has not been in good form. The lack of experienced spinners will give a tough time to them.

Opportunities for Team Pakistan 

Similar conditions of Indian pitches to Pakistan are a big opportunity for them. They currently have more points than Bangladesh on the point table so this can be an opportunity for them. This win can help them to be a part of the semi-final so they are motivated to make a win.

Threats for Team Pakistan

In this World Cup 2023, Pakistan’s biggest threat is the inconsistent batting and not enough experienced spinners. If their openers and unpredictable batters fail to bat, they will have no chance to come back to the game.

Team Bangladesh Strengths

This team has a blended and balanced squad. They have very experienced names and new talent too. Their superb spin-bowling unit is their biggest strength. They have the finest spin attack of this tournament.

Team Bangladesh Weaknesses

They did not choose the leading run-scorer in ODIs, Tamim Iqbal which is one of the bad decisions they had made. Their opening conundrum is their weakness. Player injuries are also a big issue for them which can make them miss their experienced players.

Opportunities for Team Bangladesh

The spin pitches are a big opportunity for them because they have the best spin department. Bangladesh has the same environmental conditions as India so this can also make them comfortable to play.

Threats for Team Bangladesh

The biggest threat for them is they are at a low position in the point table. They have no chance to win this World Cup. This match win or loss will not help them. This squad is a big threat.


Both teams are struggling for this World Cup. After winning the two first matches of this tournament, Pakistan lost the next four matches which can give them a tough time. According to Bangladesh Captain, this is their worst performance and now they have no chance to win this World Cup.  So, if we see the previous results Pakistan has more chances of winning this match. This win is so important for the Pakistani team to Qualify for the semi-final.


The toss and making the right decision will be the crucial moment. According to the wicket conditions, any team that will win the toss will likely opt for batting first. This will give the opponent a challenging target and pressure. Pakistan in the previous match was too close to winning while batting second. Bangladesh lost the previous match while chasing so both teams will prefer to opt to bat first.
