Nairobi: The manager of the Kenyan cricket team, which beat the West Indies in the 1996 World Cup has ridiculed allegations that the match was fixed, the 'Daily Nation' newspaper reported on Thursday.Harilal Shah, now vice-chairman of the Kenya Cricket Association (KCA), called the allegations ''total nonsense''.London's 'Sunday Telegraph' newspaper had reported that an investigation by India's Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into match-fixing would name two West Indian players allegedly involved in throwing the match.Kenya dismissed the West Indies for 93 in a group game at Pune to give the east African team a 73-run victory in one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history. The West Indies went on to lose to Australia in the semi-finals.Shah said the West Indians' reaction showed the game had not been rigged. ''I was personally present during the match and (what) I saw in the faces of the West Indies team was total shock and disbelief,'' Shah was quoted as saying.He said he would welcome an investigation.(c) Reuters Limited.
