Relief for spot-fixing convict Ankit Chavan, BCCI lifts life ban

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has given a big relief to cricketer Ankit Chavan in the IPL spot-fixing case. Ankit Chavan is facing a life ban for being found guilty of spot-fixing during the IPL in the year 2013. But the BCCI has now ended this ban.

BCCI has informed Ankit Chavan that his life ban has been reduced to seven years. After the order of the court, the BCCI changed its decision. The seven-year ban imposed on Ankit Chavan ended in September last year.

Chavan has said that this move of BCCI is a big relief for him. Ankit Chauhan said, “A big burden has been removed from me. I can’t wait to get on the ground. I thank BCCI and Mumbai Cricket Association.

Sreesanth is back

Chavan says that he will try his best to return to the Mumbai team. The spin bowler said, “After the ban is lifted, I will go back to the ground and play. Whether to return to the Mumbai team or not, but I will continue to play cricket. My job is to play cricket and I will do my best to make a comeback.

Ankit Chavan was found guilty of spot-fixing along with Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila. These three players were playing IPL for Rajasthan Royals in 2013. The BCCI had imposed a life ban on all three players. But the Supreme Court reduced the sentence of life ban to seven years.

Sreesanth has returned to the cricket field only last year after the end of his seven-year ban. Chavan had been appealing to the BCCI to lift the ban for the last one year.
