Mumbai, June 13: Spinner Ankeet Chavan, who is facing IPL spot-fixing allegations, on Thursday defended himself and hoped to play cricket again.
Chavan, who was playing for Rajasthan Royals in the sixth edition of IPL, was arrested along with two of his team-mates S Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila by Delhi police for alleged spot-fixing. Sreesanth and Chavan are now out on bail.
On Thursday, Chavan spoke to the media and said he has always given 100 per cent to the game and played with passion.
"I have always given my 100 per cent, always played my cricket with passion. I just hope that I get a positive result from the judiciary so that I can start my career and my cricket again," Chavan told repoters.
"I would just like to say, the matter is subjudice, I really don't want to comment on it," he added.
"I would like to thank the judiciary for giving me bail. I would also like to thank my lawyer, he has really worked a lot for me. Secondly my family and friends, they have supported me a lot," the 27-year-old, who recently got married, said.
