One of the most intense sports rivalries in cricket is that of India and Pakistan. The India-Pakistan confrontation has always carried an added edge because of the simmering tension between the two countries - at times genuine, at others imaginary - between the sub-continental neighbours.
The opening clash between two teams in ICC World Cup 2015 will be held on 15th February, 2015 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide where India will start their campaign to retain the coveted trophy. Tickets for the much-anticipated face-off between old rivals – India vs Pakistan, at Adelaide Oval sold out in just 20 minutes when they went on sale last year. In the latest version of ICC World Cup, Indian cricket team is being led by M S Dhoni who will try to keep India's unbeaten record against Pakistan in five previous World Cups intact and retain the World Cup. On the other side, Misbah Ul Haq will lead the Pakistani cricket team.
After analyzing the birth charts of captains of both the teams, astroYogi.com astrologers have given their prediction for the blockbuster World Cup tie – India vs Pakistan. Let’s have a look…
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, captain of Indian Cricket Team, was born on 7th July, 1981 in Ranchi, Jharkhand state of India. Accordingly, his Moon sign is Virgo and ruling planet is Mercury. On the day of the match, Venus will be present in Rahu of his birth chart which may affect Dhoni’s confidence negatively and he may fall prey to pressure. However, presence of Sun in the sixth house will help him stay strong against the opposition. He will be benefitted by Sun’s favourable position only if he is able to keep himself together during the match.
During this period, Moon’s auspicious position in Sagittarius will give some relief to Dhoni in this ‘Do or Die’ match. Team India will give better batting performance than their bowling.
Pakistani cricket team’s captain Misbah Ul Haq was born on 28th May, 1974 in Miyawali, Punjab state of Pakistan. His Moon sign is Leo and ruling planet is Sun. On 15th February, with Sun’s presence in Aquarius in his birth chart, he may experience some physical distress which will affect his focus and activeness. With favourable position of Moon in Sagittarius, Misbah will stay emotionally balanced and will take good decisions. However, with Rahu resting in his fourth house, he may lack support from his team.
Concluding the astrological prediction for India vs Pakistan – ICC World Cup 2015 match, astroYogi astrologers have to say that this is indeed going to be a neck-to-neck clash. Although Pakistan looks in a strong position to break the jinx and win over India in a World Cup setup, India has full potential and skills to maintain its record. Men in Blue will have to get their act together to put up a good show for their fans.
