4 RR players guilty of IPL fixing: BCCI
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has found four Rajasthan Royals (RR) players guilty of spot-fixing during Indian Premier League Season 6 (IPL 6), said reports on Friday.
"The probe by the BCCI's anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani into the IPL spot-fixing scandal has found cricketers Ajit Chandila, Ankit Chavan, S Sreesanth and Amit Singh guilty on multiple counts and the disgraced Rajasthan Royals players face bans ranging from five years to life," said The Indian Express.
"The BCCI's disciplinary committee meets in Delhi Friday to discuss Sawani's report on the scandal that shook India's Twenty20 league earlier this year," said the newspaper.
"Sawani investigated allegations that Chandila, Chavan and Sreesanth had conceded a pre-determined number of runs per over in exchange for bribes during the IPL this year," it said.
The lid was blown off the IPL scam after Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan - were arrested along with 11 bookies from Mumbai on May 16 for their role in spot-fixing in the ongoing tournament.
