Sri Lankan match fixing? (AUS-A vs SL)

Sri Lankans 65 (25 ov) defeated by Australia A 66/0 (11.5 ov). There's
embarrassing, insipid, humiliating and awful... and then there's this
performance that just bad beyond all belief against a reserves side.

If the Sri Lankan authorities don't conduct an investigation into this
game to check for match fixing, there's something seriously wrong.

There was no match fixing dude. They were just ***y comprehensively
thrashed. TWICE. End of story!

I thought the second game was a lot closer, at least until Sangakkarra
was out, which wasn't until 3-4 overs till the end.

One of the SA/Pak ODIs here was investigated after SA got a low score
and then bowled Pak out for even less.

The match ref can call the captains to appear before him and ask him
to explain the low scores.

True but still, they lost. Symond's innings in the second game was awesome
and to me was the difference between the teams.

Yes, I actually enjoyed the second game, and not just for the slogfest -
and yes, it was definitely not a simple thrashing. The SL bowling and
fielding was of a genuinely acceptable international level and AusA ended
up getting a good 40 or so less than I'd guessed at the mid mark. The SL
batting even looked like they could get the target at a few points and
Sang's innings was good stuff.

I'd hate to be an SL fan at the moment. They're all over the shop then
they put it together just enough to offer hope, then they're all over the
shop again. Group hug, fellas!

Not anymore. Post-Denness, the Match Referee has no authority to instigate
any such action.

However, the Anti-Corruption Unit most certainly could.

"Yes, Mr Match Referee.  We both colluded to fix the result so we could
quadruple our pay packets for the mickey mouse match.  Was this a bad
thing?  ... Ooopsies!!!"

Well Clive Lloyd did it in SA last month.

I don't know if he was being a *** match referee.

This is pathetic.  May be time to change the captain and the selection
board?  They could not last 12 overs against Aus-A.  How long will they last
against the Aussie main team?

I thought the funniest thing was De Silva not walking after being
bowled and it having to be sent to the third umpire before he'd leave
the field. I can accept batsmen standing their ground when a fieldsman
claiming a questionable catch (especially since it's more than likely
it'll be given not out), but batsmen disputing being bowled?! Campbell
appeared to have advised him several times he was bowled.

1st instance of a bowled decision being referred to a third ump?

Cheers,
Rod.

Roland Holder b. Kumble, India vs. WI, Hero Cup final 1993-4. There was a
tangle of arms and legs between the batsman and wicket-keeper (Vijay
Yadav). Bails went off. the third umpire was called on to adjudicate on
the stumping. The replays clearly showed that the ball hit the bails which
flew up and *then* hit Yadav's descending hands. 3rd umpire ruled Holder
out, even though he never left his crease!

Big controversy because 3rd ump was called into question to adjudicate on
the stumping but ruled the batsman out because he was clean bowled! The
scorecard entry was "bowled" because, I suppose, the 3rd ump later
clarified he had adjudged Holder out bowled.
