For the 1st semi-final match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka,CricketX had predicted that New Zealand batting first would score 230. They scored 217,only a few runs away from the forecast. This gives CricketX renewed confidence in its prediction for the match today — India vs Pakistan. CricketX suggests that India have a 58 per cent chance of winning; outside experts (for example,Ladbrokes) place India’s chances even higher at 61 per cent.

An additional point about the most improved team in the tournament: notwithstanding the fact that Pakistan beat Sri Lanka, their most emphatic displays of bowling strength and victory have been against non sub-continental teams. This augurs well for India as it plays at home,and with batting especially better than Pakistan (about 10 per cent),it should emerge victorious.

But hey,this is cricket and India-Pakistan to boot. CricketX likes to take itself seriously,especially with above average performance at predictions,but it can be wrong. Though I sincerely hope not this time. So fasten your bets,and be ready for a cracker.

Oh yes,first innings predictions—if India bats first they should attempt to kiss 300; Pakistan should score around 260.
