Fixing talk hits Pakistan again

Hawkins said the bookmaker, Parthiv, sent him a Twitter message during the Indian innings correctly calling that when Pakistan batted, they would reach 100 easily then lose two wickets quickly, reach 150 with five down and lose by more than 20 runs. India won the match by 29 runs.

Hawkins does not make any specific allegation of match-fixing but cites a statistician as saying the odds of the bookmaker predicting the outcome in such detail purely by chance would be 405 to one against. Suspicions were raised at the time, particularly over Pakistan’s sloppy fielding -- they dropped Sachin Tendulkar four times as he made 85.
