South Africa vs India 2018: Scientific Astrologer predicts the outcome of IND-SA Test series

India have never won a Test series in South Africa.

History in the making?

Whenever India have travelled to South Africa, they have had a captain with a weaker horoscope compared to his South African counterpart. Be it Kepler Wessels vs Mohd. Azharuddin, Hansie Cronje vs Sachin Tendulkar, Shaun Pollock vs Sourav Ganguly or Graeme Smith vs Rahul Dravid.

The only time India came close was in the drawn series in 2010-11 which happened before MS Dhoni went on his trophy-winning spree. By the time India went to South Africa again in 2013, they had already won the 2011 World Cup and Dhoni had exhausted his karmic quota. India lost again to South Africa and to the same captain - Graeme Smith - with whom they had squared the series before.

This time in 2018, it is different though. The Indian captain Kohli has a great horoscope – Uranus, Planet-Z and Planet-X in exaltation, a phenomenal arrangement indeed. Additionally, Virat’s horoscope is superior to Faf Du Plessis’s. Faf has Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter in exaltation – a clearly inferior chart compared to his Indian counterpart.

It would have been a different story if AB de Villiers was leading the team. More importantly, Kohli has loads of karmic quota intact – he hasn’t won a major tournament like IPL or a World Cup as a captain yet.

The South African team is one of the best, no questions about that. But the abundance of players who have earlier won against India could work against their favour. Contrarily, India have never won a test series before in South Africa, which might work in the visitor’s favour.

India definitely have a chance to win the Test series. From openers to middle order to the bowlers, this is an astrologically balanced team indeed. Expect Shikhar, Hardik and Rohit to tear away the opposition and Ashwin and Ajinkya to find their mojo back. While Murali and Cheteshwar will calm down the team's nerves, Virat will be in a zone of his own altogether. Ravi Shastri at the helm of the affairs is the icing on the cake too.

Expect many landmark performances in batting and bowling. The worst would be that it can end up as a drawn series. So, can we bet on Team India going on to become Invincibles like the Steve Waugh-led Australia of 90s and the Clive Lloyd’s West Indies in the 70s?

Not yet, but definitely getting there.
