    I am not sure how somebody can fix a match by preparing a bad pitch. Also, before the match pitch conditions are always aired. And we should be careful this could be a plot by foreign media to force us to prepare a batting friendly pitch for Eng match. Galle was always spinner friendly and Sri Lanka was always winning.

    This is not the usual match fixing involving the players. This is wicket fixing to suit the bookies and betting. Players not involved.
