Bangalore: The spot-fixing controversy that's engulfed the Pepsi Indian Premier League 2013 has given rise to a fair bit of anger among former cricketers and commentators. S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila, all three players with Rajasthan Royals in IPL VI, were picked up by Delhi Police in Mumbai on Thursday (May 16) and have since been in police custody.

Speaking to a television channel, Sourav Ganguly said, "I am disappointed and angry at what has happened. If found guilty, they should be banned for life. This type of corruption is up to the player, no one can force you."

Among former Indian captains who expressed their dismay at the turn of events was Kapil Dev. "We are all to blame for what has happened," he said on TV. "These three cricketers might have been caught, but we are all to blame for the way things have been."
