No motivation to question the honesty of the 2011 World Cup last: ICC


The International Cricket Council (ICC) has said that they haven’t been given any proof for examinations concerning the 2011 World Cup last among India and Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Prior, Mahindananda Aluthgamage, who was the Sports Minister during the epic match, delivered the match-fixing charges and sent down the shockwaves.

Alex Marshall, the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit’s General Manager, said that the summit cricket load up hasn’t discovered anything dubious and figures that the uprightness of the match shouldn’t be addressed until further notice.

‘The ICC Integrity Unit has investigated the ongoing charges with respect to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final 2011. As of now, we have not been given any proof that bolsters the cases made or which would justify propelling an examination under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code,’ Marshall was cited as saying in an announcement.

We take all claims of this nature incredibly genuinely: ICC

‘There is no record of any letter with respect to this issue sent by the then Sri Lanka Sports Minister to the ICC and senior ICC staff at the time have affirmed they have no memory of accepting any such letter which would have prompted an examination. We have no motivation to question the honesty of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final 2011,’ he expressed.

In any case, the ICC referenced that they would be re-opening the case in the event that they get through any proof. ‘We take all charges of this nature amazingly truly and should we get any proof to validate the cases, we will survey our present position,’ Marshall included.

Already, an exceptional examinations unit set up by Sri Lanka’s Sports Ministry brought Aravinda de Silva , Upul Tharanga, Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara. Aluthgamage’s allegations gave off an impression of being founded on the progressions by Lanka made going into the match. In the last, Jayawardena turned up with a century, however it arrived in a losing cause.

Sangakkara likewise played a better than average hand before he fell prey to Yuvraj Singh. Tharanga, then again, oversaw just a few runs off 20 balls. The Lankans wound up losing the match by six wickets. MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 91 and Gautam Gambhir’s 97 took India over the end goal.
