    Cricket-crazy India is looking skywards to discover if their players are shaping up to bring home the World Cup after the April 28 final.

    A popular Indian astrology Web site, ganeshaspeaks.com, is offering in-depth details on planetary positions on match days and the changing biorhythm circles of each player.

    The Web site is named after the elephant-headed Hindu God, Lord Ganesha.

    The cricket-frenzy in the country, home to around 1.1 billion people, has been fuelled by a multitude of television channels and media houses who are tracking the action minute by minute.

    I really don't see what the fuss is about. If you can consult the stars to find out about wedding matches, I'd think cricket matches are small fry.

    hmm .. .so how does this astrology thing works? i see all sorts of pie charts, sine waves, histograms and block diagrams (well they are sorta block diagrams) on this website ..

    does this field really works on mathematical/scientific principles or its just an attempt to assign some credibility to their work?

    i dont know anything about this .. anyone here got any information? thanks.


    @topic: baaah ... would they stop watching cricket if the 'astro man' says 'no donut'?

    Apparently they use complex math and astronomy to figure it out. My aunt's friend's dad used to do that and try and predict lottery numbers. They used to be close with one or two numbers off. I was like mmkay, in a lottery if you have one or two numbers off it's not exactly going to be clear if that was coincidence or your technique succeeding. And even if the latter was affirmed you're still fcuked cause you aint gonna win the jackpot anyways. I think the whole thing shouldnt just be written off without further study, but should be taken with a grain of salt nonetheless.
