The Board of Control for Cricket in India has imposed a life ban on tainted cricketers S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan. Rajasthan Royals players Sreesanth and Chavan were found guilty of spot-fixing during sixth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).


Meanwhile fellow Rajasthan Royals player Siddharth Trivedi has been handed a one-year ban while Amit Singh has been banned for five years in the IPL spot-fixing scandal. The case against India's under-19 world cup winner Harmeet Singh, who also represents the Royals, was closed due to a lack of evidence. (Also see: Pics - Sreesanth, the king of controversies)
