“After considering the evidence on record and hearing each of the Players in person, the Disciplinary Committee has passed the following order…Mr Amit Singh is banned for a period of five years from playing any representative Cricket, or in any way being associated with the activities of the BCCI or its affiliates,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement on Friday.

The release had no mention of Ajit Chandila, who allegedly lured the cricketers into the spot-fixing net, but a BCCI official said a decision on him will be taken at a later stage.

Since Chandila has just been released on bail, the BCCI would like to give him an opportunity to depose in front of the committee before deciding the quantum of punishment.

The spot-fixing scandal broke out when S. Shreesanth, Ankeet Chauhan and Ajith Chandila were arrested on May 16, along with 11 bookies, and were charged under the Indian Penal Code section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy.
