Mumbai Indians in IPL3 - Astrological Predictions

Last Updated: 2/24/2010 4:59:06 PM

The Mumbai Indians team was unveiled on the 17th of April, 2008 in Mumbai. Looking at the chart for that date we find that Sun and Mercury are together in Aries. The Sun is very strong in Aries. This indicates the strength of the owners of Mumbai Indians. It is no wonder that the Mumbai Indians Team is the most expensive franchise in the IPL. RIL had purchased the rights for the Mumbai franchise of Indian Premier League for a total of $111.9 million during the auction on January 24, 2008.

Moon occupies Virgo in this chart. Unfortunately there is no favorable aspect to this moon. Hence the team always seems to lack something somewhere either in the batting department or the bowling department or the fielding department. Mars is the planet for sports and activity.  In the chart Mars occupies Gemini and receives unfavorable aspect from Jupiter. This means that the team would have to work very hard to win matches. The luck factor which is so important in winning the close games somehow seems to be missing in the chart.

The season got off to a disastrous start in 2008, with their Captain Sachin Tendulkar missing the initial matches with a hamstring injury. Harbhajan Singh was forced to captain the initial matches and was unsuccessful as he lost 4 matches in a row. To add to their misery he was suspended after the now famous slap gate incident. Shaun Pollock took over the reins till Sachin resumed and somewhat salvaged the situation by winning 6 matches in a row. Their lack of the Luck factor meant loosing close games at crucial matches and thereby they missed the opportunity to enter the semi finals in the 1st edition of the IPL.

The Second edition of the Tournament was shifted to South Africa. The alien conditions and the bouncy pitches were a bit too much for the Mumbai Indian’s domestic players and none of them could really cope up with it. They failed to qualify for the semi finals yet again. But the tournament did saw some flashy brilliance from J P Duminy and Sanath Jayasurya. The matches in South Africa exposed the lack of depth in the team.

This year the Tournament is going to be played at the home soil. The opening duo looks solid with Sachin and Sanath, the middle order is sound with J P Duminy and Dwayne Bravo, the bowlers look strong with Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh and Lasith Malinga. The team adds to its depth with the latest addition of Keiron Pollard a West Indian all rounder. The domestic players who would like to impress the selectors this year with their performances are Abhishek Nayar and Ajinkya Rahane. The question is will this be enough to win the IPL 3rd edition?

Analysing Sachin’s chart we find that he will be likely to play an important role in this year’s IPL. Sachin is in good form with 4 back to back test hundreds and the time is favorable for him to continue the good form in the shorter version of the game. Mars will be occupying Cancer during the IPL which means that he will need a lot of support from all the team members. This support somehow seems to be missing with Mars in debilitation and receiving no favorable support.

The Team management will be worried as Sanath is woefully out of form, J P Duminy also looks out of sorts, Zaheer is injury prone and Lasith Malinga was also in disarray during the current Srilanka tour. The young brigade will have to support the seniors to the hilt and a lot of hard work is required if the Mumbai Indians are to reach the semi finals this year.
