The ICC T20 World Cup has begun with a bang but who will take home the coveted trophy this year? Pundits have already picked winners and so we see whose chances seem the best...
Astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi says, "I have been saying from the very start that the current year 2012 which is adding up to Number 5 will be proving lucky for most Number 5 (Mercury) and Number 8 (Saturn) people, places, names, dates, etc," explains Bhavikk.
"Taking this in to consideration, team ‘England’ (35) and South Africa (41) both fall in to this bracket directly. So if you ask me, the tie should ideally be between these two teams," predicts Bhavikk.
He continues, "The captain of the England team Stuart Broad is a cusp born between Gemini (ruler Number 5 – Mercury) and Cancer (24th June 1986) as per his sun sign. From 23rd September, the Sun will be entering the zodiac of Libra which is ruled by Number 6 (Venus) and the captain is a Number 6 himself."
"On the other hand, AB de Villiers of the South African team is ‘doubly’ ruled by Number 8 person (17th February 1984) since all Aquarians are ruled by this number while his ‘destiny’ number adds up to Number 5."
"The D-day (finals) is scheduled to be on 7th October 2012 (Sunday) at R.Premadasa Stadium which vibrates on Number 9 (Mars) which is Stuart’s ‘destiny’ number and he is also running in his 27th year. His cusp of Cancer (ruler Moon and Neptune – Numbers 2 and 7) makes the day very auspicious for him. The city of ‘Colombo’ adds up to Number 6 (Venus) which will further contribute to his luck factor."
"The name of the South African captain also adds up to Number 9 and being in his 29th year, this team will prove to be a tough competition for England."
"In short, according to my calculation – the fight for the ICC WORLD CUP 2012 T20 trophy is going to be between England and South Africa," he ends.
