Sreesanth arrives for BCCI disciplinary panel meet
Cricketer S. Sreesanth arrived for the meeting of the Indian cricket board's disciplinary committee being held here Friday.
The fate of Rajasthan Royals' players Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, who have been charge sheeted by Delhi Police in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing case, will be discussed at the meeting after members study the report submitted by Anti-Corruption Unit chief Ravi Sawani.
Sawani, a former chief of the International Cricket Council (ICC) anti-corruption unit, was asked to investigate the alleged involvement of the trio in conceding a pre-determined number of runs per over in exchange for money during the IPL.
Sawani's report will be scrutinised by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice-presidents Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah before a verdict is pronounced by the meeting. The players may face life bans.
Chavan was also present for the meet. BCCI president N. Srinivasan was also seen at the venue, a prestigious hotel in New Delhi. However, it was not immediately clear whether he would attend the meeting.
