ICC dismisses Sunday Times’ match-fixing claims

Dubai, March 12 : The International Cricket Council (ICC) Monday rejected reports by Britain’s Sunday Times claiming that the 2011 World Cup India-Pakistan semifinal was fixed.

In a statement, the ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said: “The story carried by the newspaper, in which it has claimed that the ICC is investigating the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 semifinal between India and Pakistan, is baseless and misleading. The ICC has no reason or evidence to require an investigation into this match.

“It is indeed sad for spurious claims to be made which only serve to cause doubt on the semi-final of one of the most successful ICC Cricket World Cups ever.” (IANS)
