India-Sri Lanka 2011 World Cup final was fixed, alleges Arjuna Ranatunga

Pakistan meet Sri Lanka in final league match of Women’s World Cup

Arjuna Ranatunga, who is now Sri Lanka's Minister of Petroleum and Renewable Resources, while addressing a press conference in Sri Lanka on Friday said that the country's sports ministry should launch a probe to ascertain the truth behind the fixing angle.

The former skipper in a Facebook video post, which has gone viral, stated that he was startled with Sri Lanka six wicket defeat in the finals held at Wankhede in Mumbai.

"I can not reveal everything now, but one day I will". Without giving names, Ranatunga said players could not hide the "dirt" with their clean white cricket clothing.

Hingis and Murray take mixed doubles title
After Hingis held to love, the pair saved three break points to serve out for the title. The pairs exchanged breaks in the opening set before Murray and Hingis edged ahead.


In the final, Sri Lanka made 274/6 off their 50 overs thanks to Mahela Jayawardene's unbeaten 103. Arjuna Ranatunga is regarded as one of the best captains in cricket history, he reduced himself to a laughing stock with the claim.

Ranatunga, who is the Minister of Petroleum and Renewable Resources of Sri Lanka, said this in response to remarks made by former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara who earlier questioned as to whose responsibility the 2009 Tour of Pakistan was arranged. "When we lost, I was distressed and I had a doubt", Ranatunga said. "I think to clear the air, he should back his claims with proofs", said Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, quoted Press Trust of India.

After Ranatunga stoked up a controversy, the players from the India cricket team, who were a part of that win in the 2011 World Cup final, were asked about their opinions, and the likes of Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra were pretty emphatic in their replies. As per several media reports, Nehra said,"I don't wish to dignify Ranatunga's comments by airing my views on the issue". But yes, it is disappointing when someone of his stature says something like this, " Nehra said in an interview. This is not the first time that Ranatunga has raised questions about the 2011 World Cup final.
