Mumbai: Jul 17, 2013
 
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has put its report on IPL 2013 spot-fixing on hold as its Anti-Corruption Security Unit (ACSU) chief Ravi Sawani has still not spoken to Ajit Chandila who is yet to be released from jail.
 
According to Mumbai Mirror, the BCCI had planned to complete the entire process by July end when the board will assemble for the working committee meet. In the absence of a final report it is unlikely that the board is going to announce its verdict on the tainted players anytime soon. Sawani, however has submitted an interim report.
 
Explaining the reason for being unable t meet Chandila, a BCCI official said, “He [Sawani] has not managed to get access to the player in the prison. Ours is a private organisation and we are not given access to the players. We will have to wait for the player to come out on bail.”
 
Chandila has been in jail ever since the spot-fixing scandal broke out on May 16. While S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan managed to secure bail, the 29-year old Haryana spinner is still behind bars and is likely to be released soon.
