Sri Lanka questions Tharanga, former selector over World Cup fixing probe

Karachi: Sri Lanka’s opening batsman Upul Tharanga and former chief selector Aravinda de Silva were grilled at the start of a criminal investigation into match-fixing by detectives in a probe investigating claims that the 2011 Cricket World Cup final against India was fixed.

De Silva was the first one to be questioned for six hours whereas Tharanga was questioned for two hours.

“They asked a few questions in connection with the ongoing investigation. I gave my statement,” Tharanga told reporters.

Police have said that they will next interview Kumar Sangakkara, the captain of the losing side and the current president of the Marylebone Cricket Club in London, who was asked to report to the Special Investigation Unite (SIU) on Thursday.

It must be noted that after the then-sports minister of Sri Lanka claimed that Islanders threw the final match.
