Australia made to capitulate at home, Sri Lanka brushed aside and crowned the Asian champions - the Indian team has recently been on the ‘sixth’ gear as mentioned by Dhoni. Will the team keep up the winning momentum and go on to win the Twenty20 World Cup too?

Well…Stars do not seem to favour captain Dhoni to extend his luck into the world event.
World champions such as Roger Federer, Iker Casillas, Taufiq Hidayat, Serena Williams, Abhinav Bindra, Ian Thorpe were all born in the years 1981-82. Uranus, the planet of revolutionary endeavors and Planet-‘Y’ (1999 JV127), the planet of meticulous perfection were in exaltation (astrologically the strongest positions) during this time.
Our very own M.S Dhoni was also born in this time and he too became a world champion in cricket – twice. There is no doubt about the fact that MSD has the best horoscope amongst all the captains in world cricket today.
But alas, all good things in life come to an end. Everything that goes up has to come down. M.S Dhoni has already seen the best moments of his cricketing life and has achieved everything that can potentially be achieved on the cricket field. He has won it all – a World Cup, a Twenty20 World Cup, Champions Trophy and umpteen club championships besides leading India to the No 1 in test and ODI rankings.
Reasons why India will not win the World Cup this time
One cannot win more than what is destined in one’s birth chart. Dhoni has already extracted fully from his ‘karmic quota’ of success. The second reason is the fact that there are captains from other countries who have good enough horoscopes but haven’t yet fulfilled their quota of success and planets would favour them this time. Lastly, Dhoni is going through the worst patch of his life astrologically.
The powerful Planet-X (2007 RH283) has entered into his 12th house of ‘losses’ and this may just be the beginning of the end for the Indian skipper. All of this may seem illogical considering the fact that Dhoni seems to be winning everything in sight.
But if you notice carefully most of the events he has won in the last few years are less significant tournaments. As a captain, Dhoni won the IPL in 2010 and 2011, Champions Trophy in 2013 and Champions League in 2014 and Asia Cup in 2016. But he has lost bigger events like 2012 and 2014 World T20 and 2015 world cup during this phase.
Any other person would have won nothing but as Dhoni has a superior horoscope he still won albeit ‘lesser’ tournaments even when he was on a decline. The highest point of achievement for Dhoni was winning the 2011 World Cup.
Nothing compares to the magic of leading your country to victory in a cricket world cup. He may never be able to match that peak once again. But the biggest glory – the world cup in any format – would elude him.
The inclusion of Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra has tilted the astrological balance of the Indian squad negatively. These two veterans and about half of the members in the squad have been a part of the victorious campaigns in 2007 and 2011 World Cups. Besides MSD; Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Ashish Nehra, R. Ashwin also have been part of World Cup wins before.
Thus the majority of the team has ‘lived’ out their best times and this factor will only deny further chances to the Indian team. Add to this the fact that there is no regular coach and the team director Ravi Shastri himself has been a World Cup winner will also go against India.
The entire squad seems to have exhausted the karmic quota of success. The only captain who could have won it for India this time with the same squad is Gautam Gambhir, another 1981 born.
But unfortunately, he is not even in the radar of the selectors. Probably Indians aren’t destined to win the cup this time. Expect India to do well though. It shouldn’t be a surprise if India even reaches the final of the tournament.
The only hitch is, if it does, India will lose to the other finalist for sure. One major thing to cheer for the Indian fans could be that India may continue to hold its supremacy over Pakistan in the World Cups.
India has good chances to defeat Pakistan in the 19th March encounter. Pakistan has added some muscle in their batting to complement their excellent bowling and this new look Pakistan team looks menacing.
India cannot take them easy though and hopefully shouldn’t meet them in the final. Then India may just lose to Pakistan in a World cup match for the first time and too in the final.
