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.
