After declaring Sri Lanka sold 2011 WC final to India, Aluthgamage now says it’s his ‘suspicion’

After asserting that the 2011 World Cup final was ‘sold’ by ‘certain parties’ in Sri Lanka to India, the island nation’s former sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage has now called his claim a ‘suspicion’ that he wants investigated.

The Lankan government has ordered an enquiry into the matter and a special Police investigation unit recorded Aluthgamage’s statement on Wednesday. He told the team that he was only suspicious of fixing.

  1. Isn’t it a joke that firstly we have Minister messing around in SLC. His underlying claim is that the team he approved didn’t play. That unfortunately is the problem with SLC – the admin system doesn’t work. Since him, we have had a string of Ministers who have their own agendas, which are not aligned to a national agenda but ad-hoc knee jerk nonsense that has taken SL cricket beyond the point of no return and here we this clown still going on about the 2011 WC under his watch.

    We even got excited about a couple of chaps a few years ago (cannot recall names expect for Harin) that we thought would actually do something. In typical political fashion, they mess around and walk away, no accountability, no vision – just clowns in the a circus that are no longer funny.
