Indian cricket board chief N Srinivasan said on Sunday that the recent allegations of the 2011 IndiaPakistan World Cup semifinal being fixed are baseless, and it was an insult to the Indian team.

 

A British sports-betting journalist in his yet to be launched book has raised doubts that the match between the two arch-rivals may have been fixed, PTI reported.

 

BCCI President N Srinivasan however dismissed the claims.

 

"I don't generally comment on such newspaper reports but this is the farthest from the truth. And it is an insult to the Indian team which worked hard to win," Srinivasan told reporters.
