World Cup 2011: Srivana Police questioned Aravinda De Silva for match fixing


Former Sri Lankan Sports Minister Police questioned Aravinda De Silva in the wake of Mahindananda Aluthgamage’s allegation that he accused Sri Lanka of selling the final match.

Colombo: Former Sri Lankan Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage sensationalized a few days ago that the Sri Lanka Cricket Team had fixed the 2011 World Cup Final match. Althgamge, who was the Sports Minister at the time of the 2011 World Cup, said that we had sold the 2011 World Cup to India. He said that he had said this even when he was the Sports Minister. He also demanded an inquiry into the final match of the 2011 World Cup between India and Sri Lanka (IND vs SL). Now the Sri Lankan police have started investigation by taking cognizance of the case and they have questioned the former captain Arvind De Silva (Aravinda De Silva), who was the chief selector of Sri Lanka during the 2011 World Cup, for about six hours.

BCCI ready to come to India for investigation

After this inquiry, Arvind D’Silva said that if the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) does any investigation in this matter, then he is ready to come to India for this. Please tell that Arvind de Silva is one of the greatest players of Sri Lanka. He was the vice-captain of Sri Lanka’s 1996 World Cup winning team and was the man of the match in the final. He has played 93 Tests and 308 ODIs for his country. Please tell that the Sri Lankan police will now interrogate former left-handed opener Upul Tharanga. He was part of Sri Lanka’s playing XI in the 2011 World Cup final.

Following the allegation of former Sports Minister Mahinda Althgamge, the Sri Lankan Sports Ministry has ordered an inquiry into the 2011 World Cup final being fixed and asked the Sri Lankan police to update it every two weeks. Althgamge had said in a statement that as a country he did not want to say this. They don’t remember exactly whether it was 2011 or 2012, but we had to win that match. However, Althgamge did not accuse the players. His gesture was towards the people outside the grounds.

Arjun Ranatunga has also demanded investigation

Arjun Ranatunga, captain of the 1996 World Cup-winning Sri Lankan cricket team before Althgamge, also demanded an inquiry into the match-fixing aspect of the 2011 World Cup final. Let us know that former Sports Minister Mahindanand Althgamge and then President of Sri Lanka Mahenda Rajapaksa were also called to Mumbai for the final match.

These players are absurd

The former Sri Lankan Sports Minister’s allegations of match fixing in cricket were absurd by former Sri Lankan captains Mahela Jaywardene and Kumar Sangkkara and demanded evidence. Kumar Sangakkara wrote on social media that the former Sports Minister should provide evidence to the ICC, so that the Anti Corruption Unit can investigate properly, while Mahela Jayawardene asked if the elections are going to come? Is the circus starting? Where are the names and proofs?

India won the World Cup for the second time by defeating Sri Lanka

Let me tell you that the match fixing that is being talked about was the final match of the 2011 ODI Cricket World Cup. The match was played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India beat Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in this title match. Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara batted first after winning the toss and Mahela Jayawardene’s brilliant century innings put the challenging score of 276 runs in front of India. This was easily achieved by Team India thanks to Gautam Gambhir’s 97 and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s unbeaten 91 runs. In this way, India became the ODI world champions for the second time after 1983. In 1983, under the leadership of Kapil Dev, India became world champion for the first time.
