Full Coverage: ICC World Cup 2015
The shocking fact about this message is that all the results of the World Cup 2015 matches so far have come true and have matched what the message states.
According to the message, India will not be able defend their World Cup title and will also go on to lose against South Africa and Zimbabwe.
According to the message, India will beat New Zealand in the first quarterfinal, but will go down to Australia in the semifinal.
The message states that the second quarterfinal will be between Australia and Zimbabwe, in which Australia will be the winners, South Africa will beat England in the third quarterfinal and Sri Lanka will register their first World Cup victory against Pakistan by beating the 1992 champions in the fourth quarterfinal.
But Asian giants India and Sri Lanka won't progress beyond the semifinals as they will be beaten by arguably the two best teams in the competition - Australia and South Africa respectively, the message claims.
The message shows that South Africa will defeat hosts Australia in the final on March 29 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for their maiden World Cup title victory.
If this message is true indeed, then all the work done by the International Cricket Council against the fixers will clearly come to naught. Read more
