The biggest tournament which will keep everybody glued to their televison sets is here. Yes, undoubtedly we are referring to the Indian Premier League (IPL) which is all set to kick-start today (April 7). However, even before the match has begun, the winning team has been chosen. Wait. Before you jump the gun to blame us of match-fixing and betting, here's what we meant.
A notable astrologer, Greenstone Lobo, who calls himself a research based scientific astrologer, has already predicted the winner of IPL 2018.
As per Lobo, MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir born in 1981 are ruled out of the winner’s list. This suggests Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils would not be take the trophy. Meanwhile, due to ball-tampering controversy experienced players David Warner and Steve Smith lost their captaincy symbolising that Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals squad too would not win this season.
Now, four squads are left - Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Rohit sharma who leads Mumbai Indians second time would find it difficult to win the title. Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik is the weakest captain of the lot. He replaced Gautam Gambhir as captain of Kolkata Knight Riders but he won’t be able to replicate Gambhir’s success streak. Had Robin Uthappa been the captain instead of being made a deputy to Karthik, there could have been a silver lining.
So the teams which are the strongest contenders are - Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Ravichandran Ashwin and Virat Kohli have the best coaches and phenomenal horoscope in their favour, so it could be either Kings XI Punjab or Royal Challengers Bangalore that could win the crown at Wankhade on May 27.
