Stay tuned Predictions for IPL 2014 will be updated by this weekend!
After successfully predicting Sri lanka as hot favorites to win the Asia Cup, we now move on to the ICC World Twenty20 2014 or T 20 cricket tournament. The two groups of the Super 10 stage are:
Group 1 – Sri Lanka, England, South Africa, New Zealand, Group B Qualifier 1
Group 2 – West Indies, India, Pakistan, Australia, Group A Qualifier 1.
Planetary positions – Mars retrograde (moving in Virgo from 25th March), North node along with retrograde Saturn in Libra, Jupiter direct in Gemini, Venus in Capricorn and April onwards in Aquarius, Mercury joins Sun in Pisces from 4th April. 2 Malefics retro, brings lot of unpredictability in this tournament.
Let’s have a look at prospect of all the main teams here.
This time we have calculated the luck factor and likely performance for each team and assigned certain score to them – higher the score of team based on calculations & position aligned more towards right side on top quadrant augurs well for that team (more chance to qualify for the final stages and win the trophy as well -:) .
Let us look at Group 2, where India is placed along with Australia, West Indies, Pakistan.
India – Team which is more solidly placed in this group is India (net score of approx 7). But hold on, there are certain days which are not favorable for team India and that could also be in knock out stage.
Pakistan – We have just given average rating to Pakistan, don’t expect much from them
Australia – Going as favorites for this tournament by many experts, but we feel Aussie performance is just not going to good enough!
West Indies – 2nd best team in this group as per our calculations, let’s see how far they can go.
Let’s see now for other group, where Sri lanka, South Africa, England and New Zealand are placed. This group, will see more fierce competition and teams here have generally better rating than the other Group.
England – They got good number of points as per our calculation and don’t be surprised if you see them in finals or even lift the Trophy.
New Zealand – Almost as good as England on paper, likely to go far in the tournament.
South Africa – Their performance will move from average to better, but certainly cannot be termed as good; In nutshell, they don’t look like favorites for this tournament.
Sri Lanka – Another team termed as favorites by cricket experts, but Lankans will soon realize the old saying “Cricket is a great leveler” – just back from winning the Asia cup , this tournament is not going to be easy for Lankans.
Cricket action now moves to Bangladesh, where India will compete with Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Afghanistan in the 12th edition of the Asia Cup. Indian’s already have suffered a setback as they are with out M.S.Dhoni, who is ruled out because of injury. Let’s see what stars say and how is each team likely to perform.
India – Team India is likely to miss services of M.S Dhoni and they have to particularly look after the bowling department. They may play well, but one or 2 bad performances can kill their chances of lifting the trophy. Our rating is just above average for India
Pakistan – Slow starters, but once they get going, it will be difficult for opposition. Their performance is likely to fall in between average to good.
Sri Lanka – Lankan lions will be out there with bang! Only team we feel can deliver consistent performance. They have best chance to win the trophy.
Bangladesh – Can surprise any big team on their day, but it’s unlikely that they can cause major upset in the tournament.
Afghanistan – Good learning experience for them, that’s all we can say!
Which Team you feel have best chance to lift Asia Cup 2014?
- India (43%, 17 Votes)
- Sri Lanka (35%, 14 Votes)

India and New Zealand clash in a five-match ODI series, beginning in Napier on Sunday, 19th Jan 2014. Indian team lost both the ODI’s in South Africa and performance was below par as expected. There was a persistent problem in the middle order in series against South Africa as both Suresh Raina and Yuvraj failed to deliver. Like past previews, we will look in to the overall ODI series and not by individual match. Let’s see what the stars say for this series – Mercury is transiting in Capricorn and will move in Aquarius on 26th, Sun in Capricorn, Retro Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius and Gemini respectively. Saturn +North Node in Libra.Considering these planetary positions and the horary chart suggests that unlike South Africa series, where Indian team struggled, we believe that things are likely to turn around, so expect some good show from Indians. New Zealand can put a good show, but only in patches and overall they will find it difficult to match it with the strong Indian performance. Our pick for the series is Team India.

As predicted, Team India won the series comfortably against West Indies by 2-1. Indian team has enjoyed success recently by defeating Australia and then a weaker Windies team in ODI format, but in both the series Indians had home advantage. Team India now faces one of its biggest challenges in recent times when it takes on the world No 1 Test team in South Africa. Can team India continue its good performance or South Africans will have the upper hand? Like past both previews, we will look in to the overall ODI series and not by individual match. 3 ODI’s will be played on 5th, 8th and 11th December. Let’s see what stars say – Mercury has changed sign and has moved in Scorpio along with Sun. Mars has moved in Virgo – This planetary change does not suit Indian team and for the first time in past few months, they will face some serious challenge. South Africans are likely to do well, and will overcome the recent debacle they had against Pakistan in ODI series. We pick South Africa as favorites for this ODI series.

As predicted India overpowered Australia in 7 match ODI series by 3-2 (2 matches abandoned due to rain). Australians did put up some good show, but mighty Indian batting overshadowed them completely – twice by chasing 350 and once setting a target of 380 plus. Now coming to the ODI series against West Indies, will India continue its dominance is the question? Going by the recently concluded test series, West Indies hardly put on a show & both the test matches were one sided affair. ODI’s as discussed among cricket pundits is supposed to be a better contest as West Indies have some good players in shorter version of the game. Let’s see from Astrological perspective – Mercury the main planet, supporting Indian captain Dhoni is in airy sign Libra, along with Saturn and North node. Sun has moved in Scorpio. Going by the planetary positions we feel Indian team is likely to continue its dominance and are favorites to win this ODI series. West Indies may play well in patches, but that may not be enough to disrupt the winning streak of team India. Vote for this analysis and also let us know your views on this ODI series.
The leaders in ODI format, India and number 2 ranked team, Australia battle it out in a seven-match series, beginning today. Australia did beat England in ODIs post their Ashes debacle but Indians are a tough nut to crack in home conditions. And the visitors must have got a fair idea about the task ahead after failing to defend 200 odd in first T-20. So now the question is can Australia upset team India in this current 7 match ODI series? We had a look at the things from Astrological perspective and here’s what we feel – This series is likely to be dominated by Indians & it would be very surprising to see Aussies go past the Indians. We are not looking in to match by match, but overall we feel that Indians have a edge and they will continue with some good performances. Australia will find it difficult to match to team India’s strength.

As expected, Mumbai Indians surpassed Trinidad in 2nd semi final of champions league T20. They will take on Rajasthan Royals in the final (just about 11 hrs from now). Rajasthan Royals despite having 100% winning record in this tournament will start as underdogs, simply for the reason that all their previous matches were played in their own backyard – at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, a venue they know very well. Mumbai Indians on other hand fought it very hard, firstly to make it to semi finals and then last night they overcame an energetic Trinidad & Tobago side to progress to the title clash.
Let’s see what stars say for this one –
Today is Sunday and at the time of play it will be Swati Nakshatra (ruled by Rahu). Some unexpected things can be seen today. Our pick for this one is Mumbai Indians. Rajasthan Royals, for a change may find it difficult to match Mumbai Indian’s Strength.
Don’t forget to vote for this one.
As expected Rajasthan Royals emerged winners against Chennai super kings and kept their winning record on their home turf. Moving on to 2nd semi final today, Mumbai Indians take on Trinidad and Tobago. It should be a keenly-contested match as both the teams are coming off big wins. Mumbai Indian’s batting looks very strong although there is weak link at the top of order – Tendulkar, who is yet to shine with the bat. Let’s see what stars say for this one –
Today is Saturday and Chitra (Mars) constellation will be in operation during the course of match. Mars is also moving in Leo today at 19.40, all in all there will be some fierce energy witnessed and we feel that this Mars energy will help Mumbai Indians more than Trinidad and Tobago. Our pick for this one is Mumbai Indians. Don’t forget to vote for this one.
Our preview and analysis of this CL20 suggested that MI, RR from group A and T& T, Titans from group B will qualify for semis. 3 of the 4 teams we picked have reached semi finals, Titans missed out and CSK ended at number 2 position in group B. Today at 8 PM, Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with Chennai Super kings in the first semi finals at Jaipur. RR have home advantage as match is being played at Jaipur. CSK have a solid batting line up to demolish any bowling attack. Let’s see what stars say for this one -
We believe that RR will have edge today as luck is favoring them. CSK need some thing special to overcome RR and disturb their winning record at home ground.
Our Pick is RR for this one as they are likely to qualify for Finals.
