"The time has come now for players to confess on what happened and investigations to be done

Pakistan captain Sana Mir has urged her teammates to demonstrate a higher brand of cricket to beat Sri Lanka and get a face-saving win. However, the former Sri Lankan skipper questioned his team's performance that particular match and demanded for an inquiry into the same.

India's top-scorer in the final, Gambhir wanted Ranatunga to back his claims with "proof" while another integral member of that side, Nehra didn't want to "dignify Ranatunga's comments by airing" his views.

The Sri Lankan cricket team playing under the captaincy of Kumar Sangakkara had lost the final match played against India by six wickets even after the getting an early important wicket in the form of Sachin Tendulkar. "When we lost, I was distressed and I had a doubt", Ranatunga said.

"I can not reveal everything now, but one day I will".

"I was on the panel of commentators during this World Cup final, and I was really disappointed with Sri Lanka's performance.I can not reveal what happened on that day, but I would someday reveal the truth". But India ultimately emerged as the victor thanks to half-centuries by MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir.

Dhoni finished off in a fantastic fashion, hitting a big six over long on to Nuvan Kulasekara and giving Indian fans a moment that they could hardly ever forget in their lives.

According to a report in Sri Lanka's English newspaper Daily Mirror, Ranatunga, while reacting to former skipper Kumar Sangakkara's comments on whose behest the 2009 tour of Pakistan was arranged, said: "Sangakkara wants an inquiry into the tour of Pakistan then they should have one".

Gambhir said: "I am surprised by Arjuna Ranatunga's allegations".

Gambhir, who helped his team to lift the World Cup with a wonderful innings of 97 runs in the final, said Ranatunga should only make such remarks with proofs. There is no end to these kind of statements. His most memorable achievement was leading a team of relative unknowns to World Cup glory in 1996.
