Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale accused Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh of match fixing in the final match of ICC Champions Trophy Finals 2017, according to the reports.
The minister said “Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh had scored runs against all the teams. How did they fail against Pakistan?”
India was thrashed by Pakistan with the margin of 180 runs in the Finals last month. The minister also demanded an enquiry into the matter and said “India had defeated Pakistan in the earlier (league stage) match. How can such a strong team lose to its arch-rivals Pakistan in the final by 180 runs?
The minister is highly unsatisfied with India’s performance against Pakistan and looks dubious about the Indian Cricket Team after a cracking defeat in the finals.
