New Delhi: Three Rajasthan Royal players, including India’s fast bowler Sreesanth, have been arrested in Mumbai by the Delhi Police in connection with spot fixing, sources said today.
While Rajasthan Royals didn’t name the players, Delhi Police sources confirmed that Sreesanth was one of the three.
“We have been informed that three of our players have been called in for investigation on spot fixing in matches. We are completely taken by surprise. We do not have the full facts at this point and are unable to confirm anything,” said Rajasthan Royals in a statement.
“We are in touch with the BCCI on this matter. We will fully cooperate with the authorities to ensure a thorough investigation. The management at Rajasthan Royals has a zero-tolerance approach to anything that is against the spirit of the game,” the statement added.
