Ramdas Athawale, the minister, told Indian media that he is extremely surprised over the performance of Indian team in the final match against Pakistan. He said Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh, who scored in every match of the event, were batting in the final in a manner as if they were playing for losing the match. He said it seems the match was fixed and thorough investigations should be conducted into it.
