Ahmedabad pitch condition:
There are speculations that the final will take place on the same black soil pitch where the league-stage clash between India and Pakistan occurred. In that match, the Men in Blue successfully chased down Pakistan’s total of 192, securing victory with seven wickets in hand and with 20 overs to spare.
In the ongoing 2023 World Cup, the Ahmedabad pitch has favored spinners. Despite fast bowlers claiming more wickets (35) than spinners (22), the latter has been remarkably economical, maintaining an average of just 4.89 runs per over. Notably, on this pitch, Adam Zampa (three for 21) troubled the English batsmen, while India’s Kuldeep Yadav (two for 35) had Pakistan’s middle order in a spin.
In the tournament, the stadium has hosted four matches so far, including the opening game, and has proven to be less conducive to high run-scoring. Australia’s highest score on this pitch is 286, a mark England failed to surpass, being dismissed for 253.

Although the humidity will rise to 58%, the dew point will remain nearly constant at 17°. Once again, there is no expected cloud cover, alleviating concerns about rain disrupting play on Sunday.
