Pleasant surprises or unexpected twirls? What lies ahead for Team New Zealand in CWC 2015?
New ZealandRanked sixth in the ICC ODI top teams, the co-hosts of the 2015 Cricket World Cup, New Zealand have never won the premier tournament even once. Though they have been a part of the World Cup teams since the beginning, the Kiwis, as they are nicknamed, have never even featured in the finals, although they have made it to the semifinals on six occasions – 1975, 1979, 1992, 1999, 2007 and 2011. Skippered by the batting sensation Brendon McCullum, New Zealand boast of a strong batting line-up which, apart from the captain himself, includes Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson. Overall, the Kiwis are a very balanced side – they have batsmen who can dig deep or hit hurricane 36-ball hundreds, agile fielders who can pluck the ball out of thin air, and bowlers who can both swing and spin the ball. The Kiwis have also included two all-rounders in Corey Anderson and Grant Elliot. The spin department will be manned by the veteran Daniel Vettori and Nathan McCullum.
Ganesha, with the help of Vedic astrology, finds out whether they can make the best of the home advantage this time and emerge victorious.
The biggest, quadrennial Cricket gala will begin with the transiting Moon in Scorpio Sign and in Jyestha Nakshatra, which shall be favourable for the team New Zealand. Also, the transiting Sun, first through the Zodiac Sign Aquarius and later through Pisces may boost New Zealand’s chances in the race to the CWC glory. In terms of long-term planetary alliances, the ongoing transit of Rahu through practical Virgo too shall favour the Kiwis. However, currently in effect retrograde movement of Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn turning retrograde from 15th March 2015 may act unfavourably for New Zealand team, foresees Ganesha.
Stars Speak for CWC
Basis the said planetary configurations, Ganesha notes that New Zealand’s performance in the Group matches will remain very impressive. The Kiwis will reach the Quarter-finals – without much of a problem. The period during Quarter-finals too will be favourable for the Kiwis. So, Ganesha sees a potent likelihood of them making it to the Semi-finals. However, the team West Indies can be a real threat for them. The Final match day too will remain adverse for New Zealand team.
Ganesha’s Verdict (for CWC)
As per Ganesha’s analysis, team New Zealand shall have strong chances to reach the Semi-finals. Also, New Zealand Team is very likely to be a “Dark Horse” in the race to the Finals. However, their chances of becoming the World Champions 2015 are feeble.
With Ganesha’s Grace,
