India vs Sri Lanka

This match is going to be a close one and viewers are advised to keep their fingers crossed till the last ball.

If India bat first, it should be easy for them to get a grip on the match, though there might be a few hiccups in the beginning.

And in case they come in to bat second, surving in the match will become very tough for them.

If batting first, the Indian players are likely to play some excellent shots. Some valuable fours and sixes will make the match highly exciting and entertaining.

Batsmen will show the versatile performance and it is not possible to pre-determine the performance of senior players and newcomers.

Most of the players will either be bowled or caught, yorker balls being the main cause of wickets.

India will be a stable side while batting first and Sri Lankan bowlers will have to do hard work to take wickets.

If India bat second, it will be difficult to maintain their position and stability. There will be uncertainty and quick wicket falls are likely. There will be ups and downs and unexpected turns will be seen in the second innings of the match.

Though the competition will be very close, India's stars are brighter in comparison those of Sri Lanka.

The role of spinners will be admirable in comparison to seamers. Some senior player or any one of the players will create a record.

If India bats first, they have an 80 per cent chance of winning. In case they bat second, the win percentage drops to 57 per cent.

The performance of Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh and Sachin Tendulkar will be admirable. In bowling, Munaf Patel, Anil Kumble, and Harbhajan Singh will perform well.

Ireland vs West Indies

This match will be very be interesting but it will not look like the Pakistan vs Ireland match. Here Ireland has to work really hard. They will try to give their best, but West Indies will have full control over the match.


West Indies 80%

Ireland 20%

Astrological remedy for Team India's win

Team India has had a bad start this World Cup (they lost their opening match against Bangladesh).

Here's a tested remedy I want to share with the viewers/spectators who want India to win.

They should wear the colour combination of yellow and red, yellow being prominent, like a yellow sari and a red blouse, yellow shirt and red cap, etc.

If you don't have exact yellow color, you can apply a mixture of sandalwood and turmeric powder on your forehead. Cream colour can also be used instead of yellow.

Team India supporters can also apply red rolly tika or Hanuman temple tika. The viewers who have taken vegetarian food can chant Hanuman Chalisa at regular intervals during the match.

Procedure to pray to Lord Hanuman:

First of all, pray to Lord Hanuman by enchanting the Chopai mentioned below, and then recite the Hanuman Chalisa.

Kahey Ricchiuti Suno Hanuman, Kaa Chuck Sadh Leo Manamana
Pavan Tanay Bal Pawana Samana, Budhi Vivek Vigyan Nandana,
Kaun So Kaj Kathin Jag Mahi, So Nahi hot Tat Tum Pai,

Jai Sita Ram

And then enchant Hanuman Chalisa and Hanuman Ashtak (Sankat Mochan Asthtak).
