Banned Rajasthan Royals off-spinner Ajit Chandila has been summoned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)to appear before its disciplinary committee in New Delhi on Wednesday, reported The Indian Express.

Chandila is among the three players from the Royals outfit, who have been found guilty of spot-fixing in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013, according to the internal report of Ravi Sawani — the BCCI’s anti-corruption unit chief — but he is the only one who has not received a sanction yet.

The reason for the delay in the sanction is because Chandila was the last of the players to get bail in the IPL spot-fixing case and hence could not appear before the anti-corruption unit. Also, though Chandila was out on bail since the second week of September 2013, the BCCI’s disciplinary committee couldn’t fix a date for the off spinner to appear before it because the members of the committee were ‘busy’.

According to reports, the anti-corruption unit, headed by Sawani, has recommended a five year to lifetime ban for Chandila, as he was found guilty of being involved in the scandal. The disciplinary committee is likely to impose a life ban on Chandila.

“We have asked Chandila to appear before the disciplinary committee on Wednesday. Sawani has found him guilty and has advised strict action against him,” told a BCCI official.

Sawani’s report indicated that Chandila had influenced other players to indulge in spot-fixing. He is also accused of passing vital team information to the bookies. Based on Sawani’s report, the BCCI’s disciplinary committee banned Rajasthan Royals players — S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan for life, and Siddharth Trivedi for 12 months. A former player Amit Singh was banned for five years too.
