Conspiracy theories always grip Pakistan-India cricket matches, and it is not surprising that claims that the match was fixed have surfaced once more. On Sunday, a man tweeted the results of the ICC Cricket World Cup match between the two archrivals much earlier than the match had ended.
During the much-awaited match between India and Pakistan played at the Adelaide Oval India beat Pakistan by 76 runs, and kept their record of never being beaten by Pakistan during a world cup match.
The Indian side won the toss and went on to score 300 runs after opting to bat first. They played the full 50 overs and lost seven wickets. On the other hand, Pakistan was all out at 224 during the 47th over.
The match ended late in the afternoon as per Pakistan Standard Time. However, surprisingly a person named Aslam Khan Tanoli, at around 12:35am, tweeted that India would score 300 runs while Pakistan would be all out at 220.
The person was so sure in his claim that he asked the viewers to copy his tweet and accept his challenge.
We know that the Pakistan vs. India Match concluded at around 4:30pm, then how was it possible for Tanoli to have so accurately predicted the outcome of the match five hours ahead of closing time?
This tweet is currently making rounds on Facebook and Twitter, along with claims that the match was fixed. Well it could be — who knows — but not because this person predicted the results of the game well ahead of the outcome.
It is pertinent to mention here that Twitter does not allow its users to change the timestamp of a tweet. Even when you change the time zone or try to tweak the settings, changing the time is simply impossible.
So technically speaking, Tanoi tweeted exactly at 12:35am. Of course Tanoli does not have a time machine either. All he has is a neat little trick. What is interesting is not the prediction but the fact that Tanoli tweeted hundreds of other tweets, with all sorts of probable scenarios along with this one. Eventually, when the match was over he deleted irrelevant or incorrect tweets and left the one that had matched the results.
This is not something new to the man. During July of last year, something similar happened when an account accurately predicted the outcome of the FIFA World Cup even before the match had begun.
A twitter handle called “Reign of Football” had tweeted all possible scenarios ahead of the FIFA World Cup Finals, and then deleted all of the incorrect outcomes.
Earlier a couple of weeks ago, the former Pakistan cricket team captain Aamir Sohail had hinted at purported fixing of India Pakistan world cup matches.
In reply to question raised by a reporter about Pakistan losing all their world cup matches against India, Sohail said that results of such matches are decided not in the ground but off the ground.
match fix ? BLA BLA MAD RANTS .. WHEN SHALL NAAPAK ALHARAAMS LEARN CRICKET IS CRICKET ..WIN OR LOSE PLAY ALONG –
THESE SC8M RATHER HAVE ATOMIC WAR WITH INDIA -THEN THESE RA*S SHALL HIDE IN DUBAI OR LONDON ..
Smelly Drunken Indians troll the world to say that How much they innocent. They are bleeding us since 47.
Even Kashmir has been fixed and sold away to India….Mera Bharat Mahaan hotels are being built across Gilgit and Baltistan… a formal announcement will happen before 2020.
Keep Dreaming. India will be no where after 2020 and US will be divided into 50 independent States.
its easy , you can tweet different results of the Match and then on time you can delete the unrelated results (tweets) , and you can keep the one closer to the real outcome,…..and i would seem that match was fixed…!!!
fix my as—-. the stupid nation misled by money crazy media, thinks that the loss is a deliberate and fixed one….. my foot. the fact is every time the the team tries its best to win but others do not allow that and practically rub the team Pakistan in the ground. the stupid Pakis always bet on idiot afridi who is at best a street level player.

Indians are really match fixers. They are former home ground bribe champions. The Politics in cricket should be erased by dispelling India from Cricket. No India Pak Rivalry just Media made it hot cake & nothing new. In Every India Pak ODI unfair Umpiring reveals that match was fixed. The Cricket fans outside from India Pak want bribe free cricket.
