ENG vs NED World Cup 2023 Pitch Report -
The Maharashtra State Cricket Association Stadium in Pune has been a high-scoring venue in limited-overs cricket in the last few years. Many ODIs in the last 10 years have seen high scores at the venue. Even in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, South Africa scored more than 350 runs and defended it easily against a side like New Zealand. Other matches have not had huge scores on board.
In the ongoing tournament, the teams have failed to adapt to the conditions. The team batting first has failed to play out the conditions in the way it should be. Something South Africa did against New Zealand was not replicated by other teams. The track is good for batting, but pacers can hit the deck hard and extract something out of the pitch. Spinners can slow down things with their accuracy.

Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (C & WK), Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Mark Wood
