While the World Cup will start on May 30, it would not be entirely wrong to say that the fans are desperately waiting for June 16 as India and Pakistan will lock horns on that day. The much-awaited World Cup will kickstart with hosts England taking on South Africa in the tournament opener. Pakistan will open their World Cup campaign on the very next day against two-time champions West Indies. India, on the other hand, will kickstart their campaign against South Africa on June 5.

And the marquee clash between India and Pakistan will take place on June 16. India will definitely start as favorites not only because of the current form but also because of their track record against their arch-rivals in the World Cup. India and Pakistan have so far played six games against each other in the World Cup and the former have won on all the occasions. And scientific astrologer Greenstone Lobo’s prediction will only make the Indian fans happier.
The astrologer has predicted that India has the best chance to win against Pakistan in the World Cup. Lobo, in fact, said that India would definitely beat Pakistan. He, however, said that the two teams will not meet in the final again like the Champions Trophy final two years ago.
“It’s not possible at all. The chances of both or either of the teams winning the Cup is low,” said Lobo on chances of seeing an Indo-Pak final.
Meanwhile, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has said that his team will have an advantage over India due to the victory in the Champions Trophy final.
“True (lost all WC matches to India) but remember we recently beat them in a big event by a big margin so we might have a bit of an advantage due to that,” Sarfraz had recently told the media.
Meanwhile, Lobo has also predicted that India would not be able to win the coveted World Cup.
