Mumbai, June 5: In 2013, Indian cricket once again began to embrace fixing. Rajasthan Royals players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan have been accused of spot-fixing. The three were later banned by the BCCI. Now Ankit Chavan has asked the BCCI to allow him to play cricket once again. Ankit Chavan has demanded that I be allowed to play cricket now that BCCI Lokpal DK Jain has banned him for life for seven years. Ankit Chavan is now awaiting an official message from the BCCI.
‘The BCCI’s Lokpal has banned me for life now for 7 years. The hearing was held on April 19 and the Lokpal issued the order on May 3. I have been writing to the BCCI for the last one month, but there has been no response from them. So I wrote a letter to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). I want an official letter from the BCCI stating that I have been banned for 7 years. I want to inform the Mumbai Cricket Association that I am eligible to play. I have also requested the MCA to inform the BCCI about this, ‘Ankit Chavan told the Times of India.
‘My case and Sreesanth’s case are the same, he was banned for 7 years. But before the ban was completed, the BCCI’s ombudsman’s order came. My 7-year imprisonment period ended on September 20, 2020, ‘said Ankit Chavan, 35.
Although Ankit Chavan has written a letter to the MCA, he is being told that he has no right to intervene in the matter. This case is related to BCCI, so how can we decide on this? This was stated by MCA sources. Ankit Chavan had sent a letter to the MCA last year, but even then he did not respond.
