World Cup 2015: The 'God' knew it, Sachin Tendulkar prediction on semis spot on

SYDNEY: He isn't called the 'God of cricket' for nothing and Sachin Tendulkar lived up to the title by accurately predicting the cricket World Cup semifinalists.

Much before the tournament began, Tendulkar picked India, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as the last four for the showpiece and the line-up turned out exactly that a month later.

Australia beat India to enter the final, while New Zealand edged past South Africa to make it a final of the co-hosts.

Sachin Tendulkar had made his prediction during the launch of his autobiography 'Playing It My Way' in London last month.

He was asked to pick his world champion but the Indian limited himself to naming the semifinal line-up.

"I can't pinpoint any one team but there are a few competitive teams. I would like to name Australia, South Africa, New Zealand (as a dark horse), and India," said Tendulkar.

That's not all, the 41-year-old retired batsman had also somewhat predicted England's flopshow.

"Anything is possible at this point, but going by the current form England will not be that competitive."

In fact, "No, not really," was Tendulkar's reply when he was asked whether the English would make the semifinals of the mega event.

The accurate assessment has led to Tendulkar being compared with German octopus Paul who rose to fame in the 2010 FIFA World Cup for picking the right winners through the tournament, including the eventual champions Spain.

Sachin Tendulkar a humble man: McAllister

Former Yeovil captain McAllister, 36, was player-coach of Kerala, who were runners-up in the inaugural competition and are co-owned by India cricket legend God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar.

Told BBC Sport "Sachin's a very humble man, he's a nice man," he reminisced on a cold January afternoon at Exeter's Cat and Fiddle training ground. "We met him a few times, he had lunch with us a few times and he did a motivational speech in one of our meetings. He was very hands on with us. It was great just to be around him. "I'm not a big cricket fan but the Indian lads worshiped him. He was so humble and easy to talk to."
