Sreesanth and teammates cleared of IPL spot-fixing

Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and team-mates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, who were accused of cheating in 2013, have been cleared of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League, by a court in Delhi.

The players were arrested with over a dozen bookkeepers as part of a police investigation into spot-fixing that involves illegally rigging parts of a match to benefit bookmakers or those betting on matches.

The players had maintained their innocence and the court dropped all charges for lack of evidence.

The Rajasthan Royals are owned by Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and her husband businessman Raj Kundra.
