Reiterating his allegation that cricket matches are “institutionally fixed,” author Atul Kumar on Saturday requested the authorities concerned to investigate the matter. Atul has written extensively on betting in cricket in his book ‘Inside the Boundary Line’.

Addressing a press conference here, Atul said, “I have said this before as well and have proved this mathematically and scientifically in my books. No one has contested this so far. I have written to the President of India, the Prime Minister, the judiciary and the BCCI Committee of Administrators but nothing has happened.

“If this is investigated, then a lot will come out of it.”
