Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Four players of Rajasthan Royals allegedly involved in spot-fixing during the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), have been found guilty in a probe conducted by BCCI`s anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani, according to a English daily, The Indian Express.
S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan, and Amit Singh, who are currently out on bail, now face a ban anywhere between five years to life after being found guilty on multiple counts, the report said.
The BCCI`s disciplinary committee will meet here on Friday to discuss the report of Sawani on the scam that rocked the Twenty20 league.
The BCCI`s disciplinary committee comprises Board vice-presidents Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah. If reports are to be believed then after discussing the report, the disciplinary committee might decide punishments today itself for these cricketers.
All four of them had played for the Rajasthan Royals in the cash rich IPL and also spent time in jail after being arrested by the Delhi Police.
Sreesanth, Chavan and Chandila were arrested on May 16, along with eleven bookies, and were charged under the Indian Penal Code section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy.
