Regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal‘s decision to skip the business end of the ICC World Twenty20 has worked wonders for Sri Lanka. Lasith Malinga has a phenomenally strong horoscope with Uranus and Saturn in exaltation and Sun in its own house. Had Chandimal been in charge, the Lankans wouldn’t have reached the final of the tournament.

MS Dhoni has won the ICC World Twenty20, the ICC World Cup, the ICC Champions Trophy, two Indian Premier League (IPL) titles and a Champions League Twenty20 crown. In other words, he has already reaped the benefits of possessing an unparalleled horoscope. Most members of this Indian team have been part of major victories.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka haven’t won a major world tournament since 1996. They have featured in several major finals, but finished second-best on all instances. Veterans like Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara — both will retire from the format after this tournament — and Tillakaratne Dilshan will get another chance on Sunday. Their horoscopes do merit at least one major title and the planets may just conjure up to give them a farewell gift. It would be really surprising if India win on Sunday.

But, then, you never know. Some invisible forces are always at work.
