New Delhi: IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals's four players allegedly involved in spot-fixing during IPL 6 have been found guilty in the probe done by BCCI's anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani, The Indian Express reported on Friday.
S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan, and Amit Singh, who are currently out on bail, now face a ban anywhere from five years to life after being found guilty on multiple counts - the report said.
The BCCI Disciplinary Committee, however, is set to meet in New Delhi on Friday to discuss the report. The probe done by Sawani was around allegations that Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan fixed to concede pre-determined runs in an over in exchange of money during the sixth edition of the IPL earlier this year. The fourth player found guilty in the report, Amit Singh, also played for Rajasthan in 2012. He allegedly tried to fix games with Chandila.
The report said that Sawani has already informed the players about his verdict three days ago and in his report has recommended a minimum ban of five years.
Sources in the BCCI have told The Indian Express that the disciplinary committee is likely to ban Chandila and Amit for life, while Sreesanth and Chavan may get a 10- to 15-year ban.
Two other Rajasthan players Harmeet Singh and Siddharth Trivedi, who were questioned by the police, could be slapped with an ineligibility clause ranging from one to five years for failing to report that they were approached to fix matches.
