Former skipper of the Sri Lanka Cricket team Kumar Sangakkara has been summoned by the Sport Ministry’s Special Investigation Division to record a statement over the 2011 ICC World Cup Final match-fixing allegations, Director of the unit SSP W. A. J. H. Fonseka said.   

Sangakkara was the captain of the Sri Lanka cricket team at that time.  


SSP Fonseka said Sangakkara had been asked to appear before the unit today at 9.00 am.  


The special unit also recorded statements from former Sri Lanka Cricketer Aravinda de Silva, who was the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Cricket Selection Committee at that time, and from the opening batsman in the final match Upul Tharanga over the allegation.  SSP Fonseka said the police had recorded a two-hour statement from Tharanga yesterday.   Earlier, former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage claimed that the ICC World Cup final between India and Sri Lanka in 2011 was fixed.  
On June 24, the Special Investigation Division recorded a statement from Mr. Aluthgamage over his comment.
