'Some 2011 World Cup games were fixed'

New Delhi, Apr 2: In a shocking revelation, International Cricket Council (ICC) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit's (ACSU) confidential report claims that some matches of the 2011 World Cup were fixed.

According to "Headlines Today" TV, ICC ACSU's report hints that some games of 50-over World Cup were not clean.

India won the World Cup on April 2, 2011, after defeating Sri Lanka in the final at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

The report says that bookmakers and fixers were found making several attempts to approach players.

"A total of 470 matches and more than 200 practice sessions were covered by the ACSU to compile the report. The mastermind of this illegal network is known only as SB, and was first observed and tagged by ACSU in early 2010. His activities have been closely followed," the report on "Headlines Today" said.

"SB and his associates - codenamed AZ and BRY - were found making several attempts to approach players, who were advised by ACSU to stay clear of these individuals.

"Five mobile numbers were identified and itemised billing details obtained for each. SB's each move, including trips to Sri Lanka and Dubai in 2011, were tracked, as were his business dealings," the report stated.
