Astrologer predicts Afghanistan’s upset win against England in ODI World Cup 2023; post goes viral

On Sunday, October 15, Afghanistan registered an upset win by 69 runs against the defending champions England, at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, to break open the quadrennial spectacle. In the immediate aftermath, an astrologer went viral on X for his post, in which he had predicted that Afghanistan got the best chance to pull off a surprise against England.

For the unversed, Jos Buttler had won the toss and put Afghanistan into bat first on pitch, which was expected to stay good throughout the 100 overs. The openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran provided a fantastic start to the Afghans, sharing a partnership of 114 for the first wicket.

But, after a flurry of wickets, which had Rahmanullah Gurbaz gone back to the pavilion for 80 off 57 with eight fours and four maximums, England made a comeback into the contest. Still, Ikram Alikhil, in his first outing of the ODI World Cup 2023, scored a fifty to help Afghanistan reach 284 total.

In the run chase, England were never in control, with only Harry Brook getting 66 off 61 with seven fours and one maximum. The spin trio of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi picked up the majority of the wickets to bundle out England for just 215 runs.

The viral post from the astrologer Sumit Bajaj about Afghanistan versus England’s ODI World Cup 2023 match read, “Although this is the best chance for Afghanistan to create a surprise, as astrologically England getting less support from stars as Afghanistan is getting, but they may only create a stir for some part of the game & England shall win in the end!!”
