A rumour spread on the social media that the World T20 2016 final between England and West Indies was fixed. But actually it wasn’t fixed and the rumour started from a twitter handle ( @CricInsider). He had the tweets which predicted the incidents of the final match, but it was actually a ploy.

Earlier, he had tweeted several tweets predicting the outcomes of the match and then kept on deleting the tweets which went wrong during the course of the match. So, by the end of the match, he was left with only those tweets which went right. He then promoted his tweets with his other twitter handle and then the news went viral on the social media.

Later on, he himself told the reality and made it clear that it was a ploy to April fool others, as making someone April Fool on 1st of April is too mainstream. But, this was not the first incident when such rumours spread on the social media. The regular users of the social media must have been habituated of this by now.

Every now and then, there have been cases erupting about match fixing. The recent ones have been coming from South Africa domestic cricket
