The Indian cricket board will meet Sunday in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Friday said it had suspended Gujarat medium pacer Amit Singh who, during his stint with Rajasthan Royals, was allegedly used by the bookies to fix deals with cricketers.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Jagdale said its working committee will discuss the arrest of three cricketers, including India fast bowler S. Sreesanth, by Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in match-fixing in IPL.
BCCI also cracked the whip on Amit Singh, who was also on the board's list of bowlers with suspected action, by suspending him pending inquiry. The trio of Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila was suspended by BCCI Thursday following their arrests.
"Amit Singh, a registered player with the Gujarat Cricket Association, who has also been arrested by the Delhi Police, has been suspended by the BCCI, pending inquiry," said BCCI secretary Jagdale.
