The statistics point victory to India : Very interesting statistics. I’m particularly in awe of the guy who figured these out. !
1) World Cup victories alternate between left hander and right hander captains.
1979 – Clive Lloyd -Left Hander
1983 – Kapil Dev -Right Hander
1987 – Allan Border -Left Hander
1992 – Imran Khan -Right Hander
1996 – Arjuna Ranatunga -Left Hander
1999 – Steve Waugh -Right Hander
2003 – See ?!! Interesting, huh?
2) Now… statistics shows that after the league matches of this world cup, Australians have won 12 consecutive matches. + 3 in super six and +1 in semis makes it 16 and they may meet India in Finals. Remember ……. Its the same Ganguly and his boys who broke the sequence of 16 consecutive test victories by Aussies. Will we repeat the same in One-days too ?!
3) – West Indies were the champions in 1975 and 1979. The difference between the years is 4.
– Aussies were the champions in 1987 and 1999. The difference between the years is 12.
By Arithmetic Progression the next number is of course 20. (4, 12, 20). So the 2003 champions will have to be the champions in 1983. Since 2003-1983=20. Whoa !!
