Former Sri Lankan sports minister Mahindananda Aluthagamage has complained that his country’s cricketers sold the 2011 World Cup. He could not provide any evidence. However, his allegations caused a stir in world cricket.
The Sri Lankan government has ordered an investigation into whether the 2011 World Cup final was rigged. The Sri Lankan Police Independent Special Investigation Unit also launched an investigation.
One by one, former cricketers started being summoned in the investigation of the 2011 World Cup final. Arvinda de Silva, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, and Mahela Jayawardene were called up. Mahela Jayawardene was not questioned despite being called for questioning.
Meanwhile, within four days of the start of the investigation, the Sri Lankan Police Independent Special Investigation Unit pulled the beard. According to Sri Lankan police sources, the intelligence department is satisfied with the interrogation. They did not get any indication of average. So the investigation has been closed.
Meanwhile, the ICC’s anti-corruption unit issued a statement on the 2011 World Cup final. Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC’s anti-corruption wing, said: “The then Sri Lankan sports minister has no record of any letter from the ICC in this regard. Senior ICC staffers have confirmed that. They have not received any such letter which will be investigated. There is no doubt about the ICC Boys Cricket World Cup 2011 final. There was no fixing in that match. if you one to visit the homepage plese lest’s go now
