Three Indian players including Sreesanth involved in spot fixing – arrested by police

sreesanth-spot-fixing-arrestPolice has arrested three indian players – Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan – all belonging to Rajasthan Royals . They have allegedly been involved in spot fixing and have actually carried out preplanned deals made to bookmakers during this year’s IPL.

The police also has identified the matches where the alleged spot-fixing took place which are: against Pune Warriors on May 6, 2013, Kings XI Punjab on May 9, 2013 and Mumbai Indians on May 15, 2013. The bowlers had concede a prespecified minimum number of runs in a predecided overs. Police has said that it had recordings of how the deals were struck, how the players indicated to the bookmakers that the deal was on, and then how they actually went on to concede the decided number of runs.

Stangely enough cricinfo has not openned up its articles for commenting and open discussion as of now. Therefore we are sharing the news here and welcome all to leave their opinions and feedback on the current spot fixing scandal.

I wonder where the ICC is. The players have already been arrested but ICC has not taken any action yet. The ICC seems to always be at the back seat when it comes to identifying and catching currupt crickets. Sometimes its some news channel or tabloid that does a sting operation and sometimes the police gets the culprits. ICC normally come into play when all is done. However this time around, its still yet to make a statement …

    • Yup, espncricinfo.com is a very biased website. It always supports India. Public commenting is not even openned on most of the articles because people might say nasty things about india.

      News is always the same, but the way you present it changes the whole perspective of how people perceive it.

  2. The spot fixing is really killing the cricket. IPL has become Indain profit league.
