On Saturday, the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India awarded a life ban to Madhya Pradesh seamer TP Sudhindra for his involvement in the spot-fixing scandal exposed by a Hindi news channel in a sting operation.
Following the decision taken by the BCCI, Sudhindra has been extremely disappointed.
Before coming here I told my parents to be ready for the worst. I don’t know what to do now. The last 15 days was really bad and I haven’t really slept properly. Let me talk to my lawyer first. I will take his advice,” he was quoted as saying by The Sunday Express.
Sudhindra was extremely sad with the pain his mother was undergoing because of his actions.
“I am only worried about my mother. She is going into depression. I don’t want my family to suffer for my mistakes,” he says.
Sudhindra didn’t mince any words when he accepted his involvement in spot-fixing.
“I made it clear that I regret my wrongdoing,” he said.
Sudhindra had earlier refused to accept Rs 1 crore as bribe that was offered to him by undercover reporters. However, he was caught for accepting a bribe of Rs 5,000 for bowling an intentional no-ball in a smaller domestic match
“People don’t realise the financial state my family was in. I was trapped,” he says. “But I did decline an eight figure offer made by the same people. I will come out with the true story soon. Let me talk to my lawyer first. I don’t want another youngsters to be trapped like me,” he added.
