The news are over the nerves as the discussion is about the finals of the ICC World Cup 2011 between India and Sri Lanka. SLC’s Aluthgamage and De Silva proposed that there were some deliberations as the victory granted to India was not won by them by their own hard work. The sports ministry claimed that he saw some unexpected changes in the squad.
Now, Upul Tharanga, one of the players to get featured in the World Cup 2011 final against India, is cited for the investigation by the department and he will be making statements.
The player scored only two runs off twenty balls and Sri Lanka were just one sky away from reaching the top most level.
The decision to call Tharanga for investigation heavily relies on the claims of De Silva, the former Sri Lanka skipper, and the former sports minister, Aluthgamage.
