    LONDON: The semi-final between Pakistan and India of the Cricket World Cup 2011 was fixed according to a claim made by British Journalist Ed Hawkins in his new book.

    According to Hawkins, the bookie had a contract with Pakistan which stipulated that the team would lose the match by a margin of over 20 runs.

    The bookie had further said that India batting first would make 260 runs and their first three wickets would fall in 15 overs, while Pakistan would make 100 runs and then lose two quick wickets.

    Another claim made is that bookies had used Bollywood actresses in the fixing process.

    Hawkins a sport betting journalist spent months investigating corruption in cricket. His book ‘Bookie Gambler Fixer Spy: Journey to the corrupt heart of cricket’s underworld’ will be published on November 15.

    Semi Final was fixed, final was fixed. It required a winner from the "white" teams to prove the world cup was clean.

    These Englishmen just cry on cricket when they loose. When England became no.1 in test all (english cricketers) were saying England will hold no.1 position for at least 5 years!! LOL no comments now from them.
