Five IPL cricketers have been suspended by the BCCI following the India-TV sting operation.
The players suspended are Shalabh Srivastava, TP Sudhindra, Abhinav Bali, Amit Yadav and Mohnish Mishra. Earlier in the day, BCCI termed the alleged spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League and other domestic competitions as “disturbing” and said it would take strict action against those found guilty of indulging in corrupt practices. “The footage that was shown by the television channel was very disturbing,” BCCI chief admisnistrative officer Ratnakar Shetty said.
“There has been an immediate action proposed by the BCCI president, and strong action will be taken against those found to be guilty,” he added.
The alleged spot-fixing scandal in the IPL had its echo in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday with members seeking a high-level probe into match fixing charges and the way in which blackmoney was coming into play in it.
The matter was raised during Zero Hour by Samajwadi Party member Shailendra Kumar and supported by former cricketer Kirti Azad of the BJP
