My prediction for the final between Australia and New Zealand

I believe that New Zealand will win based on the similarity between the WC-1987 and WC- 2015.

  1. Sum of 8 and 7 is 6 in the year 1987. Sum of 1 and 5 is 6 in the year 2015.
  2. In both semifinals, India chased the target.
  3. England defeated India in 1987 and Australia was a new team that was not considered to win. Now, Australia defeated India and they are considered stronger than New Zealand.
  4. Ravi Shastri was the part of Indian team in WC-1987 and he was still the part of this team in WC-2015.
  5. Gavaskar was from Mumbai and Rohit Sharma is from Mumbai. When we expected from both, they did not click.
  6. In 1987, India lost the semifinal against England. In 2015, we lost against Australia.
  7. England did batting first. Within few overs, opener Robinson was out like Warner. Also, Australia did batting first in this semifinal against India.
  8. Gooch made a century after the fall of the first wicket. After the first fall, Smith did the same in 2015.
  9. Mike Gatting complemented Gooch from the other side with a half-century like Finch did in 2015.
  10. In the last few over, Alan Lamb made runs with strike over more than 100 and those 20-30 runs cost us. In 2015 semifinal, Johnson did that job.
  11. In the whole series we were dependent on Sidhu and he did not click in the SF. In this WC-2015, we were dependent on Kohli but he did not play. Both play for the North India.
  12. There was a player Chetan Sharma and now we had a player Mohit Sharma. Both were in team as a third pace bowler.
  13. There was a player Maninder Singh and now we had a player Mahendra Singh.
  14. There was Srikkanth who was known for hitting the ball and now we had Shikhar who is famous for his hard hitting.
  15. Mohammad Azharuddin was part of that team and Mohammad Shammi was part of team in 2015.
  16. No Asian team was in the final in 1987 and also in 2015.
