New Delhi, May 17 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in Inida's (BCCI) Working Committee is likely to meet on May 19, and may consider after deliberation, the imposition of a life ban on Test player S.Sreesanth and two Rajasthan Royal players-Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila-for their alleged role in spot-fixing three of Rajasthan Royals' Indian Premier League matches this season, television reports said Friday.
With all three players pleading guilty to the spot fixing charge and being sent to five days police custody on Friday, the BCCI top brass will be keeping an eye on how investigations by the Delhi Police pan out.
As per media reports, there is unanimity among the office-bearers that Sreesanth should not be allowed to play any cricket at any level from now on.
