This is a part of that exercise.<br /> <br /> Undoubtedly, it's a victory of cricket," Dalmiya told reporters in Kolkata.<br /> <br /> "I am sure it will act as a deterrent and others will learn a lesson as well."<br /> <br /> Acting on ACSU chief Ravi Sawani's report, the BCCI disciplinary committee today <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/BCCI-bans-S-Sreesanth-Ankeet-Chavan-for-life/30893" target="_blank">slapped life bans</a> on former India fast bowler <a href="/tags/S-Sreesanth/post" target="_blank">S Sreesanth</a> and spinner <a href="/tags/Ankeet-Chavan/post" target="_blank">Ankeet Chavan</a>.<br /> <br /> The BCCI also handed out <a href="/tags/Amit-Singh/post" target="_blank">Amit Singh</a>, a former Rajasthan Royals player, a five-year ban, while another Royals cricketer <a href="/tags/Siddharth-Trivedi/post" target="_blank">Siddharth Trivedi</a> got a one-year suspension in the scandal which rocked the Twenty20 league this year.<br /> <br /> There was no decision on another accused <a href="/tags/Ajit-Chandila/post" target="_blank">Ajit Chandila</a>, who recently got out on bail.<br /> <br /> Asked about Chandila, Dalmiya said: "He was recently released on bail so could not be interrogated. His role is still being probed, and a decision will be taken soon."<br /> <br /> Ahead of the September 29 AGM, there may be a fresh setback for President-in-exile N Srinivasan with the Supreme Court deferring the BCCI vs Cricket Association of Bihar case but Dalmiya refused to answer questions relating to this issue.<br /> <br /> "I'm not in a position to comment something about Srinivasan. I'm not aware," Dalmiya said.
