A video of Rajeev Shukla press conference saying that BCCI won't pardon any player found guilty in spot-fixing.

 

The BCCI Vice President and IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla said that the Indian Cricket Board will not tolerate such acts by players and if found guilty, the players will not be pardoned.

 

“The IPL Governing Council met on teleconference today at 2:30pm and they recommended to the BCCI President for strict action against those players who were found guilty and found suspicious on the television footage shown on India TV,” IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla told reporters here.

 

“Since it also involved matter relating to other matches and previous IPL, it was referred to the President. The president after due consideration has decided to have a preliminary inquiry for which a commissioner has been appointed. Mr Ravi Sawani who was the ICC ACSU chief and now advisor will conduct the inquiry and he will submit a report to the Disciplinary Committee,” he said.

 

“Pending inquiry the five players have been suspended from all cricket activities with immediate effect. We will await the report of the preliminary inquiry and proper action will be taken only after that,” he added.
