Spot-Fixing: As it happened

MAY 5: RR vs PWI. DEAL: The right-arm off-spinner agreed to concede 14 in the second and final over of his spell.

SIGNAL: He was supposed to pull his jersey out of his trousers, but forgot to give the predetermined signal, because of which the bookies could not bet in this match and demanded a refund of the `Rs.20 lakh that he had received as advance.

THE OVER: In the fateful over, Chandila began with a wide down leg-side to Aaron Finch, leaked two boundaries to Robin Uthappa, and then dished out a full delivery on leg-stump with the field up for Finch to hit the crucial four off the last ball.

MAY 9: RR vs KXIP. DEAL: Sreesanth agreed to concede 13 runs in the second and final over of his spell.

SIGNAL: He tucked in a towel into his trousers just after bowling his first over. When he took the pitch initially, the towel was missing. By the second over, however, he had hung the towel from his trousers' waistband, giving bookies time to place bets as he did warmups and stretching exercises.

THE OVER: Full and short deliveries enabled Sreesanth to reach his objective as Shaun Marsh and Adam Gilchrist picked him for fours. Sreesanth could have stopped the last boundary that was shot back past him, but chose to withdraw his hand from the line of impact.

MAY 15: RR vs MI. DEAL: Chavan agreed to concede 15 runs in the second over of his spell.

SIGNAL: He moved his wrist band before deliveries.

THE OVER: It helped Chavan no end that Glenn Maxwell was the batsman on strike. Two towering sixes ensured that the off-spinners' task was made rather easy and the required runs came off the first four balls only.
