The Indian cricket board has convoked tainted Rajasthan Royals player Ajit Chandila so that they can decide about his cricketing future.
Chandila is currently out on bail. According to Zee News, Chandila may face life ban too. On September 29 Chandila will be meeting chief of Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) Ravi Sawani in New Delhi.
The off-spinner was absent in the last disciplinary committee meeting. In that meeting life ban was handed over to fellow Rajasthan players S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan. Siddharth Trivedi has been suspended for one year, while Amit Singh has been suspended for five years.
The trio — Sreesanth, Chavan and Chandila were arrested on May 16 and were charged under IPC section 420 and 120B, dealing with fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy.
As a result the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) came up with ‘Operation Clean-up’, which planned out measures to stop corruption in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
