Sri Lanka ordered investigation regarding the ICC World Cup 2011
“A criminal investigation has begun,” K.D.S. Ruwanchandra, the secretary to the sports ministry, told AFP.
“It is handled by the (police) independent Special Investigation Unit on sports-related offences.”
The match that took place between India and Sri Lanka was won by India and recently, the news is saying that the match was fixed which has shaken the cricketing world.
Also, the ex-minister of SLC had demanded to inquire about the matter to reveal the truth whether if the reports are declaring it exact or not.
He said that not only Sri Lanka but the Indian management, sports ministers, cricketers, shall be brought to a spotlight to recognize if they won a fixed World Cup 2011.
“Just like we cherished our World Cup victory, players like Sachin (Tendulkar) cherish these moments for the rest of their lives. I think in the interest of Sachin and the millions of cricket fans across India, it’s the duty of the Indian government and their cricket board to initiate an impartial inquiry to see whether they have won a fixed World Cup,” he said according to Inside Sport.
“When serious allegations like these are being made, it affects a lot of people. In this case not only us, the selectors, the players, and the team management but Indian cricketers who deservingly won the world title. We need to clear this once and for all for the greater good of the game we love,” he added.
