Life ban for any player involved in fixing in IPL-7, warns Rajeev Shukla
Jaunpur (UP): Senior BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla on Wednesday sounded out a warning that the cricket board will have zero-tolerance towards match-fixing and anyone found guilty of indulging in malpractices during IPL-7 will be "banned for life".
"The BCCI and IPL governing council are alert after spot-fixing allegations in previous edition of IPL. Each and every game of seventh edition of IPL will be thoroughly monitored. Any complaint to Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) will be dealt with a lot of seriousness. If the charges are proved, guilty will be banned for life," Shukla told mediapersons here today.
He had come for the campaign of Congress candidate from Jaunpur Ravi Kishen, who is a Bhojpuri filmstar.
The first part of IPL from April 16 to 30 will be held in United Arab Emirates while Bangladesh is on stand-bye as an off-shore venue from May 1-12 provided union home ministry doesn`t give go-ahead to BCCI on organizing matches during counting phase of the general elections.
IPL will be back in India from May 13 to June 1.
