A purported schedule of World Cup 2015 matches and their allegedly 'fixed' results, show that Pakistan will win against West Indies on Saturday but will only get as far as the quarter-finals in the tournament, the Times of India reported on Friday.

The schedule, which has gone viral through messaging app Whatsapp, purports that almost all matches at the World Cup, being played in Australia and New Zealand, are fixed.

It claims to have successfully predicted outcomes of the matches so far. However, the original date of the message or its credibility cannot be independently verified and it remains to be seen whether the purported schedule will prove itself to be accurate over the course of the tournament.



According to results in the purported schedule, Pakistan will win against West Indies on Saturday and Zimbabwe. It will, however, lose to minnows UAE before falling to South Africa. Oddly, it does not suggest a fixed winner between Ireland and Pakistan.

It suggests that Pakistan will face Sri Lanka in the quarter-finals and will lose the match, crashing out of the tournament.

The purported schedule suggests that India will lose its crunch match against South Africa on Sunday, but will win all its remaining group matches. They will beat group A winners New Zealand in the first quarter-final, but fall to fellow Big-Three Australia in the semi-final.

Interestingly, the last of the Big-Three, England, will not make it into the semi-final. Humiliated by New Zealand on Friday, England will win its remaining group matches before falling to South Africa in the quarter-final.

New Zealand will be on top in group A and would win all the matches whereas in group B South Africa will top the list.

The teams which will make it to the semi-final include India, Australia, South Africa and Sri Lanka. The final will be contested by Australia and South Africa, with the African nation prevailing to lift the World Cup for the first time in its history.
