World Cup 2011 was fixed, Sri Lanka minister offers ICC evidence

Sri Lanka's former minister, Mahindananda Aluthgamage said on Saturday that he has offered more evidence to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to prove that 2011 World Cup was fixed. The minister have come with the statement after the local police dropped the investigation, saying that lack of evidences in the claims & saying that Sri Lanka deliberately lost to India in the finals by 6 wickets.

The police have investigated the chief selector Aravinda de Silva, Sri Lanka opener Upul Tharanga & the 2011 Sri Lanka's World Cup captain Kumar Sangakkara for nearly 10 hours.

The former sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage have said that there were "powerful people who are spending huge sums of money to hush up the investigation."

He further said that he has informed Alex Marshall, anti-corruption chief at the International Cricket Council (ICC), that he was ready to provide more evidence showing the match was sold & fixed. Aluthgamage said police had failed to investigate the claims properly and urged Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to pressure the ICC to reopen an investigation. 

Sri Lankan police have not responded to Aluthgamage, for his words about the report of investigation.

The anti-corruption chief Alex Marshall have reported on Friday that 'at this time' the ICC has "not been presented with any evidence that supports the claims made or which would merit launching an investigation."

He also said that,"ICC takes allegations of this nature extremely seriously and should we receive any evidence to corroborate the claims, we will review our current position."

This controversial debate & investigation were begun, when the former sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage said on 2 weeks before that,"I am telling you that we sold the 2011 World Cup final. It took place when I was the sports minister of Sri Lanka. I do not announce this earlier for the sake of the country. But we were to win the game."

"I am telling you with responsibility I felt that the match was fixed. I can debate this, I know people were concerned about this," he added.
