The one-man Board of Control for Cricket in India panel has found four Rajasthan Royals players guilty of spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League 2013. According to reports, probe panel chief Ravi Sawani has found S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan and Amit Singh guilty of spot-fixing . Sawani, who is also head of the BCCI's Anti-Corruption Unit, has recommended bans ranging from five years to life for the guilty players.
The fate of the cricketers implicated in the IPL spot-fixing scandal will be up for discussion when the BCCI's disciplinary committee meets in New Delhi today to deliberate on Sawani's report. Chandila and Singh are likely to get life bans while Sreesantha and Chavan may be banned for 10-15 years. The probe has also pulled up Harmeet Singh and Siddharth Trivedi for failing to report that they had been approached by bookies.
Five Rajasthan Royals players Sreesanth, Chandila, Chavan, Harmeet and Trivedi have been asked to attend the disciplinary committee meeting. However, it is not sure if Chandila will attend the meet as he was granted bail just a few days ago. As per BCCI rules, a player needs to be give one week's notice to attend a disciplinary committee meeting. The players will be cross-examined by the committee, which comprises Board vice-presidents Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah.
