Planetary hurdles may keep Team England off its mark in ICC CWC 2015, predicts Ganesha.
EnglandCurrently on the 5th spot in the ICC ODI rankings, England, led by Eoin Morgan, are gearing up to stake claim to the 11th ODI World Cup, jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand, which will kick off on February 14. England will take on traditional rivals, hosts Australia, in their first game on the opening day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Though they have never won a World Cup, England have finished runners-up in 1979, 1987 and 1992. With a large ex-pat population in both Australia and New Zealand, the ‘Barmy Army’ is likely to get a lot of support from the crowds in their 11th shot at the coveted trophy. In the last World Cup of 2011, England were knocked out of the quarter-finals by Sri Lanka. The English selectors have made three changes to the ODI team which lost 5-2 to Sri Lanka earlier this month. James Anderson and Stuart Broad return from injury. Alastair Cook, Ben Stokes and Harry Gurney are the three players to get the axe from most recent one-day squad. The team will depend heavily on pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad to set the quick tracks of Australia on fire. In the batting department, Moeen Ali, James Taylor and Joe Root are the ones to look out for. Ganesha reads further into the planetary transits to predict the way ahead for the English team.
The Cricket World Cup tournament will begin with Moon transiting through the Scorpio Sign and the Jyestha Nakshatra, a planetary aspect that shall be not quite favourable for England. Also, the Sun’s transit first through Aquarius, and later through Pisces may remain only about average for the Team England. Also, from a long-term planetary perspective, the transiting Rahu’s movement through Virgo will continue to block England’s progress, throughout the World Cup tournament. However, as major redeeming factors, the retrograde movement of Jupiter through Cancer and Saturn turning retrograde from 15th March 2015 onwards will remain favourable for England.
Stars Speak for CWC
Basis these planetary configurations, Ganesha notes that England’s performance in the Group matches will remain very inconsistent. They will, however, manage to reach the Quarter-finals – albeit with few problems. The period of Quarter-finals, though, will remain pretty difficult for England. However, if they qualify as number 4 in Group A, they will have a strong chance to reach the Semi-finals stage. The planetary picture aligned for the Final match day will, however, remain adverse for the English Team’s CWC aspirations.
Ganesha’s Verdict (for CWC)
Team England will have very moderate chances to enter the Semi-finals.
