The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore recently hosted Match 6 of the Asia Cup 2023. Opting to bat, Sri Lanka scored a challenging score of 291 for the loss of 8 wickets. In order to stay alive in the tournament, Afghanistan played with a high-risk approach in order to qualify for the knock-outs and eventually fell short by 2 runs. Both the pacers and spinners were equally successful in the last match with pacers accounting for 9 wickets while the spinners walked home with 8 wickets. The pitch here offers an intriguing duel between bat and ball. Early on, pacers enjoy the new ball's swing and seam, as evidenced by Gulbadin Naib and Kasun Rajitha’s exploits in the last game. But as the match evolves, spinners, aided by a generous 75-metre boundary, come into their own. Statistically, this ground has seen 66 ODIs. Teams batting first slightly edge out with 34 wins compared to 30 by those chasing. Typically, the first-innings average score in ODIs here is 255. The highest ODI score registered here is 375, and the lowest is 75. Considering the recent trend at the venue, the captain winning the toss is likely to bat first and defend the target in this clash of monumental proportions.
