Does word order matter in my query?

I am trying to put together a query. field1 is a big text field. I am looking for key words in there. order of keywords do not matter. I would like to know if the query below achieves that. Thank you !

query_template = {
      "query" : {
       "bool": {
       "should" : 
        {"match": {"field1": {"query": "i do not care about the order of keywords here", "boost": 10}}},

If you go with the defaults, and field1 is a text field with the standard analyzer, then order does indeed not matter. However, if you have applied a custom mapping (for example, if the field is mapped as type keyword or if it has an analyzer with shingles) then order may matter.
