That Dhoni has been ranked 52 in the TIME MAGAZINE is numerologically significant.Number 52 adds up to 7.I have been writing in my blogs since Dhoni was appointed Indian captain that he is strongly influenced by his lucky numbers 2/7.It was on this basis that I predicted through my blogs-even before the WC 2011 began-that Dhoni will lift the wc for India as the 2nd captain,as the final was on April 2.India won the 1st cup in the 3rd wc.This was the 10th WC.So,I also mentioned that it will be the 7th from the 3rd.On April 1st the ASIAN TRIBUNE published my prediction on India-Lanka final.The prediction was summed up thus:?INDIA WILL MIRACULOUSLY ESCAPE FROM THE LANKAN TSUNAMI AND DHONI WILL LIFT THE WC FOR INDIA AS THE 2ND CAPTAIN?.
