Players who lack integrity can spot-fix: Raj Kundra
New Delhi: It was not possible for Indian Premier League (IPL) teams to fix matches but players, who lack integrity, can be involved in spot fixing, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra said Thursday.
‘Just when IPL was going on so smoothly without controversies I woke up to the news of 3 RR players alleged spot-fixing investigations r on,’ Kundra tweeted.
‘When asked the repeated question is IPL fixed my answer is always IPL teams CAN`T be fixed but individual players who lack integrity can,’ he added.
Kundra`s comments came after India fast bowler Sreesanth as well as his Rajasthan Royals colleagues Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested in Mumbai Thursday for alleged spot-fixing in the IPL.
Besides the three players, Delhi Police also arrested seven bookies from Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad in connection with spot-fixing, which includes bowling no-balls or wides at pre-determined times.
The three players were arrested after Rajasthan Royals match with Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium Wednesday night. Rajasthan Royals lost the match by 14 runs.
