Tarot reader Shruti Chopra is back again with her tarot predictions! She will be there right through the ICC T20 World Cup 2012 to give CricketCountry.com readers tarot card predictions of each and every match in the championship. In the below piece, she dwells into Australia’s opening game against Ireland on Wednesday.

 

 

Australia

 

The Death card starts off the Australian campaign – they are ready to make the required changes in the way they are perceived as a T20 team. They will start off steady and look to build a victorious Six of Wands-like momentum allowing their potential to dominate the Irish. Maintaining balance will be the key, as complacency could spell danger. They will do well with the ball, and will find their Ten of Cups-like team work proving to be a crucial element in today’s game.

 

George Bailey will have luck on his side. He will display strong captaincy skills and utilise his High Priestes- like hidden potential to surprise the opposition. As a batsman he will be like the Two of Cups - comfortable and looking to build a strong partnership.

Key players

 

Shane Watson will have a good day with the ball. He will, like the Seven of Wands,be in control and dominant.

 

David Warner will need to work hard to see results come his way, especially as he has the Ten of Swords piercing him with challenges throughout the game.

 

Pat Cummins is feeling fresh and energetic. He will take on this opportunity and be a positive contributing factor.

 

Brad Hogg will have a tough start, but with Magician-like capabilities, he will be quite deceptive with the ball.

Ireland

 

The Irish will have a promising and steady start to the game. They will show glimpses of a strong team unit, but unfortunately with the Tower card showing up, their game plans may not come through as strongly. They will throw themselves on the field and do their best to back up a weak bowling display. Watch out for their batting – it will show fight and Strength like control.

 

William Porterfield’s captaincy will display great leadership and Eight of Pentacleslike hard work. He will look to be positive but will not see equally positive results. As a batsman, he will be balanced and aggressive. He will want to make this match count.

Key players

 

Ed Joyce is like the Hierophant – in control of his shot selection and in tune with his team’s plans.

 

Kevin O’Brien is eager to take on the opposition. Despite repeated attempts of brilliance he will have an average Two of Pentacles day all round.

 

Alex Cusack will have some great plans and will come prepared, but his Knight of Swords like impatience will see his hard work undone.

 

Gary Wilson seems confused, as does the Seven of Cups – too many ideas and unsure of how to make sense of it. It will be a tough day for him with not much going his way.

 

Who will win?

 

Australia.
