The big question is that whether the 5th Test between India and England in Chennai was fixed.
After allegations of fixing at Galle in Sri Lanka, the spotlight has also come on 3 Indian Tests. An Al Jazeera documentary claims that at least three Test matches featuring India were fixed in the last two years.
In the documentary, one guy Al Jazeera identified as Aneel Munawar, an Indian who is said to work for crime syndicate D Company, is seen naming 2 Australian players to the undercover reporter as being part of the fix
The names of the cricketers were edited out in the documentary

According to the channel, the main culprits were a Mumbai-based former Indian first-class cricketer, an Indian advertisement executive settled in the UAE and people involved with the D-Company. The sting operation executed by journalist David Harrison shows how match fixers bribe various people involved in the match.
Former Pakistan Test player Hasan Raza and three Sri Lankan internationals namely Dilhara Lokuhettige, Jeevantha Kulatunga and Tharindu Mendis are the people that have been involved.
The curator of Galle Stadium Tharanga Indika under whose supervision Australia lost a Test is less than two-and-a-half days in August 2016 and India piled 600 in their first innings in July 2017, has admitted to doctoring the pitches.
