Kolkata: In a desperate bid to return to the national team, suspended cricketer Ajay Jadeja has requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to revoke its ban and allow him to play after reviewing all match-fixing allegations against him.[an error occurred while processing this directive]In a letter to BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, Jadeja pleaded innocence saying he was not guilty of the charges levelled against him and expressed his strong desire to once again play for the national team.The BCCI chief confirmed having received the letter from Jadeja, but refused to comment either on its content or the Board's reaction to it. "We have referred the letter to our lawyer," Dalmiya said in Kolkata on Tuesday.Jadeja had been suspended for five years from the national team on the basis of the CBI report on match-fixing allegations in December 2000. He had later challenged the ban in court.Immediately after taking over as Board president in September, Dalmiya had made it clear that the board would fight the case filed by Jadeja and other suspended players. He had even suggested that board should fight the case jointly with CBI, since it had all the relevant papers and which had investigated the match-fixing charges, naming five players including Jadeja.Jadeja is the first among the five cricketers suspended for involvement in match-fixing to have formally requested the Board to review its stand. The others who were named by the CBI's Anti-corruption Committee were former skipper Mohammad Azharuddin, Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Sharma and Nayan Mongia. PTI
