    A new embarrassment for India is unfolding.

    A current Sri Lankan Minister, who was sport minister in 2011 disclosed that CWC 2011 final was fixed. The Sri Lankan presented the victory to the Indians.

    He said that by placing his hand on his heart. He says that certain groups were involved, and wants investigation about it.

    Before him Ranatunga has also alleged that the CWC 2011 final was fixed and demanded investigations.

    Problem is ICC is never going to take any action against India, it is given.
    This matter and admission by a minister of Sri Lankan government would go unnoticed by them.

    Considering this is about a sport which is dominated by India in terms of revenue and influence, I would say the joke is really on people who watch this nonsense game and countries that still participate in it. The 2 Aljazeera documentaries in 2018 were enough to show how corrupted this game is.

    No. That is no analogy. This allegation is false. Both in international political games as well as cricket Sri Lanka is no match to India. India can flatten entire Sri Lanka in a single day if it wants.

    In fact it takes match fixing for Sri Lanka to beat India like it happened in 1996 WC semifinal, Singer Cup 1996, Singer World Series 1996, etc.

    But in politics even fixing can't help it. The best it can do is be a proxy for some bigger power.

    Don't you think there should be an investigation?

    We knew already ICC is all fixed for India.

    Shame on Australia, South Africa, and India for ruining the game.

    I am pretty sure India vs Pakistan semi final was fixed as well. Shame on Pakistan and Srilanka.

    Neither is there need nor will ICC do an investigation. The primary purposes of cricket are to spend time with family or friends and future nostalgia.

    On-topic:

    On rereading I realised. What the alleger meant to say is that RAW bribes relevant people of any and every country - big or small. It bribes Pakistanis. It bribes Americans. It bribes Russians. It bribes Chinese. It bribes Nepalis. It bribes Bangladeshis. It bribes Afghans. It bribes Sri Lankans. It bribes Britons. It bribes Arabs. It bribes Israelis. It bribes Africans. It bribes Kashmiris. It bribes Iranians. It bribes Australians.

    RAW is like an octopus. It has reach all over the world.

    Is it true that since wealth is worshipped in India, that it is easy to bribe Indians as they face no ethical issues in this regard?

    Its not just India tbh. Listen, unlike FIFA, ICC is not so rich and needs to rely on donations and match tickets.

    Whenever a match takes place between two teams, it is now a norm that the home team gets the maximum advantage though it is not applicable for every countries.

    The last 3 world cup were won by host nations and I believe this will continue in the future too.

    This is done to increase funds of ICC. If the host country can manage to move on to the semis and finals, then more ticket can be sold.

    Your belief is wrong. Wealth is worshipped everywhere. What do you think how India has been winning everytime with Pakistan and keep Kashmir?

    Everything in India is FIXED. Be it government, judiciary, media, sports, entertainment. Indians hate authenticity in every aspect of life.
