Suparna Ghosh (Intern Journalist) : Back in 2011 World Cup, it had raised many questions on match fixing and a detailed investigation was conducted by the Sri Lankan Sports Ministry in order to know the truth.
Three former captains of Sri Lanka was questioned by the Special Investigation Unit of the Sports Ministry, which included the very popular Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, also a key member of the team, and Aravinda de Silva. According to sources, Sangakkara is charged of match fixing under his captaincy and was almost questioned for about 10 hours.

Arjun Ranatunga, former cricketer gave a media statement that he was completely shaken by Sri Lanka’s six-wicket defeat in the finals, and allegedly accused the team of match-fixing. He demanded an inquiry immediately. Until his outburst or explosion, no one came forward to raise a question, despite the local media being suspicious from beforehand.
Due to a lack of evidence, no conclusions yet have been made. Jayawardene was reportedly seen arriving at the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo for a round of questioning, latest on this Friday, while Aravinda de Silva was questioned for almost 6 hours.
