N Srinivasan, the President for BCCI reacted to it by saying in this ANI video, “I generally do not react to newspapers and comments like these, but I think nothing can be further from the truth. I think it is an insult to the Indian team, who fought hard to win.” It was not only this match that the Indian team won, they also beat the Sri Lankan team to lift the World Cup for the second time in the history of Indian cricket.
But, with such kind of reports, it is the game of cricket, which is going to be badly hit. There is no denying the fact that betting has become an inseparable, but disturbing part of world cricket, especially in the sub-continent. But, one can only be penalised and actions can take place, if there is proper evidence, as the players' and the team's reputation is also on the line.
