The inquiry launched by former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage on the allegations of a match-fixing at the 2011 World Cup final has been suspended.

SSP Jagath Fonseka, the head of the special police unit investigating the incident, said that the investigation into the incident is no longer being conducted and that it has been decided to submit a report to the Secretary of the Ministry of Sports.

Officers of the unit have met this morning to discuss the situation. They have said that all the players who participated in the match have been summoned and there is a possibility that there will be a lot of controversy in the country. The SSP also states that according to the statements made by the players so far, the 14 reasons put forward by Mahindananda Aluthgamage have not been verified.

Fonseka pointed out that the players and the former Selection Committee Chairperson had made a statement regarding the changes made at the last minute and the reasons for it. Accordingly, Fonseka points out that there is no need to make further investigations into the matter.
