Astrologer's prediction on India's loss at semi-final turns true

Astrologer's prediction on India's loss at semi-final turns true”

Acknowledging the fighting spirit displayed until the last overs despite suffering early setbacks in terms of losing its top batsmen, the Indian cricket team has received a pat on the back for the die-hard spirit shown in the cricket world cup semi-final match against New Zealand. When two or three batsmen were gone, they didn't know what to do.

They slumped to five for three in pursuit of a target of 240 and were 24 for four when Dinesh Karthik was out.

"Indian fans should be proud of the way their team played in the World Cup", he added.

Interestingly, "under scanner" Dhoni is fourth on the list of run-getters for India in this tournament with 223 runs. However, someone new will win, like New Zealand.

The pair gave India hope during a World Cup record seventh-wicket stand of 116, all-rounder Jadeja boldly leading the way with 77.

"With the new ball they were outstanding with the areas that they hit".

"There may be a lot of predictions from a lot of people but my prediction is that New Zealand is the victor and Kane Williamson is the "Man of the series", Balaji Haasan had said in the video.

With India needing 31 off two overs, Dhoni uppercut Ferguson for six to the delight of the massed ranks of India fans in the crowd.

Jadeja obliged, clubbing four fours and as many sixes, before holing out to long-off off Trent Boult and though Dhoni attempted to up the ante, the veteran was run out following a direct hit from Martin Guptill in the penultimate over as India's hopes vanished.

However, with the asking rate skyrocketing, Jadeja took one risk too many, skying a Boult slower ball to Williamson before India lost their last four wickets for 11 balls. Unbeaten for the better part of the tournament they won nine games, lost one (to England), while their game against New Zealand was washed out.

Rishabh Pant holed out for 32 when he was caught at deep midwicket by Colin de Grandhomme following a lofted sweep off Santner, leaving India slipping towards an unexpected exit.

New Zealand, beaten in the 2015 final by Australia, were restricted to just 239-8 after completing their 50 overs a day later than expected following the suspension of play due to rain on Tuesday.

Ross Taylor, who resumed on 67 not out, top-scored with 74 after Williamson had made a masterly 67 in awkward conditions.
