ICC World Twenty20: Scientific astrologer predicts India to beat Pakistan in league, but not in final
India will play Pakistan in a league match in Eden Gardens, Kolkata on March 19.
New Delhi: As in every big sporting event, the predictions and crystal-ball gazing have already started for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20.
If one such prediction is to be counted, then Pakistan may well ended up lifting the trophy for the second time. And throw in some 'masalas', it's foretold that, the losing finalists might well be India.
According to a report in the Dawn, Indian astrologer Greenstone Lobo has predicted that Pakistan could emerge as the winners of the tournament if they managed to reach the final.
He added that, if India and Pakistan play in the final, then Shahid Afridi's side will trump Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Men in Blues.
However, the astrologer -- who claimed that his predictions are based on scientific research, felt that the India-Pakistan match in Eden Gardens, Kolkata on March 19 will be in hosts team's favour.
Given the circumstances leading up to Pakistan's confirmation to play in the marquee tournament and their form, and also India's brilliant preparation, many would thought – Good luck with that!
