Chandila banned for life, Hiken Shah for five years

Former Rajasthan Royals offspinner Ajit Chandila has been banned for life from all official cricketing activities for his role in the IPL 2013 spot-fixing case. Former Mumbai batsman Hiken Shah, who had been suspended by the BCCI in July 2015 for making an “illegal approach” to a player, was handed a five-year ban.

A release from the BCCI said Chandila was “held guilty of misconduct and corruption”, having breached seven clauses of Article 2 of the BCCI’s anti-corruption code relating to corruption and betting. Shah, the release said, had breached three clauses of Article 2, all related to corruption.

The BCCI’s disciplinary committee had met in Mumbai on Monday, and pronounced the penalties against the two.
