Mumbai, May 16: Cricket fraternity, on Thursday, woke up to the shocking news of spot-fixing in Indian Premier League (IPL). Three Rajasthan Royals' cricketers - S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested by police for their alleged involvement in spot-fixing. BCCI later suspended all three.

Sreesanth is a well known name in Indian cricket. He is not new to controversies. The India paceman had been slapped by Harbhajan Singh during the first edition of IPL and this year the Kerala player reopened that episode and blasted the offspinner in a series of tweets. Now, his name has come up in spot-fixing.

Left-arm spinner Chavan and offspinner Chandila have not played international cricket. However, they have been involved in first-class cricket. Chavan plays for Mumbai while Chandila plays for Haryana.
