New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals CEO Raghu Iyer said there is still some time left before they win back the confidence of the sponsors following the last year's spot-fixing scandal. (Sreesanth, Chandila, Chavan arrested for match-fixing)

"As far as fans are concerned, you have to go by the numbers flocking to the stadium. Overall, the crowd in the UAE was good and I am sure we will get good attendance in all our matches in our new home in Ahmedabad," he said.

"Last season, we played three games after the controversy and we still witnessed a packed house. So the cricket fans usually remain unaffected but the sponsors require communication which is being done and action (on spot-fixing) which will be taken," added Iyer, who has been the team's CEO since the start of the IPL in 2008.
