After Delhi Police arrested three Rajasthan Royals players - S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan on charges of spot-fixing in the ongoing season 6 of Indian Premier League, the captain of Rajasthan Royals IPL 2013 team, Rahul Dravid came out and addressed media through a press conference.
Please find below the full text of what Rahul Dravid said on the Spot-Fixing Scandal :
“I am shocked, disappointed, and distressed by the events that have resulted in the arrests last night and this morning. Rajasthan Royals is a special team, where we have always operated like a family – so this is particularly devastating. Spot fixing and corruption have hung over the game of cricket, and I know that the BCCI and RR take the same zero tolerance view of the situation. The RR owners and management have made their zero tolerance views clear on every possible occasion, and I am sure that they will support any action taken.

For me, as a captain and leader, I have to focus on ensuring that the team fulfill their enormous potential and continue to play in the ‘Rajasthan Royals’ way. Our players are devastated that our performances may have been affected, as they have a desire to win that has been evident throughout the tournament. I hope that our fans get behind us even more, and that we become stronger as a unit – which often happens in times of adversity.”
