After watching the Kings XI Punjab go great guns in the UAE, many an expert tipped them to win the league. For the record, this writer had predicted just that even before a ball was bowled in the tournament. Not surprisingly, Punjab are the best-placed to Sunday's final against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
George Bailey has an extraordinary horoscope with Uranus and Planet 'Y' in deep exaltation. The Aussie's horoscope is similar to those of MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir. While Dhoni has reaped all possible benefits, Gambhir has been a part of a couple of World Cup wins besides leading KKR to IPL glory in 2012. On the other hand, Bailey hasn't achieved anything of note. This could well be his best chance.
Punjab coach Sanjay Bangar also has a phenomenal horoscope. And he hasn't fully justified it thus far. On the other hand, Trevor Bayliss has tasted success with this team as well as Sydney Sixers (Big Bash League).
The Punjab outfit comprises many players who haven't played in or won major tournaments. The Kolkata squad is brimming with players who have tasted big success.
In other words, it's Balle Balle all the way. Preity Zinta can finally celebrate.
