New Delhi: The Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) has issued notices to former Rajasthan Royals (RR) player Ajit Chandila and Mumbai's Ranji Trophy cricketer Hiken Shah to file a written response to the charges against them in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case by January 4.
The three-member BCCI Disciplinary Committee, which is headed by BCCI President Shashank Manohar and includes Niranjan Shah and Jyotiraditya Scindia as the other two members, met on Thursday but decided to postpone its verdict giving time to the two players.
The committee will now meet on January 5, 2016, to announce its decision.
Chandila and Shah appeared in person before the committee that also decided to issue a notice to former Pakistan umpire Asad Rauf to respond to the match-fixing charges against him.
Chandila was arrested by police in 2013 after the biggest controversy hit the IPL in the form of spot-fixing scandal, where, besides Chandila, his former RR team-mates S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan were also arrested and later banned for life by the BCCI.
The board is yet to decide on the quantum of punishment to Chandila.
A MCOCA court in Delhi, however, discharged all the accused in the case earlier this year.
