No reason to doubt integrity of World Cup Final 2011: ICC

No reason to doubt integrity of World Cup Final 2011: ICC

Dubai, Jul 3 (UNI) The International Cricket Council on Friday claimed there is no reason to doubt the integrity of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final 2011 in which Sri Lanka lost to India, saying that world governing body has not been presented with any evidence that would merit an investigation.

"We have no reason to doubt the integrity of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final 2011,"ICC’s Anti Corruption Unit General Manager Alex Marshall said in a statement.

“The ICC Integrity Unit has looked into the recent allegations regarding the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final 2011, Marshall said.

At this time, we have not been presented with any evidence that supports the claims made or which would merit launching an investigation under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

"There is no record of any letter regarding this matter sent by the then Sri Lanka Sports Minister to the ICC and senior ICC staff at the time have confirmed they have no recollection of receiving any such letter which would have led to an investigation," he said.

"We take all allegations of this nature extremely seriously and should we receive any evidence to corroborate the claims, we will review our current position.

"If anyone has any evidence that this match or any other has been subject to match-fixing, we would urge them to get in contact with the ICC Integrity team."

Among the cricketers who gave statements in this regard were then captain Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Upul Tharanga along with Aravinda De Silva, who was chairman of selectors before the 2011 tournament.
