ICC ODI World Cup 2023: Pakistan vs South Africa Head-to-Head Records & Stats In ODIs. On October 27, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Pakistan, and South Africa are set to engage in a thrilling battle as the 26th match of the ODI World Cup 2023 unfolds. While their historical ODI rivalry has normally favored one side, the ODI World Cup meetings have been a much more actual contest. 

As the captain Babar Azam leads Pakistan into this match, they find themselves on a challenging three-game losing streak. Nevertheless, Aiden Markram’s South Africa has lost only one match out of their five matches in the tournament.

These two cricket giants, with 82 ODI encounters between them, had their most recent ODI showdown during a 3-match series in South Africa back in 2021, with Pakistan emerging victorious by a 2-1 margin. Seemingly, they’ve never crossed paths in Chennai but have played matches against other teams at the same venue.

Now, in anticipation of the upcoming clash in the World Cup 2023 between Pakistan and South Africa, we delve into their ODI head-to-head statistics and ODI World Cup Stats and Records.
