Former Rajasthan Royals and India pacer S Sreesanth conspired with the bookies to fix performances in the 2013 edition of the league, according to Delhi Police intercepts relating to the sensational IPL-6 spot-fixing case.

CNN-IBN has exclusive access to the intercepts that say Sreesanth fixed performances in a match played between RR and Kings XI Punjab in IPL-6.

The report also claims that another cricketer Ajit Chandila was in touch with the fixers and conspired for an IPL match in May 2013.

In a match between RR and Pune Warriors on May 5th 2013, Chandila entered into conspiracy with bookies to give 14 runs in an over, the report says.

Intercepts also reveal that Sreeshant a deal with bookies through his friend Jiju to deliver a fixed performance on 9th may 2013 match between RR and KXIP.

Sreesanth gave signal to bookies by tucking a napkin towel in his trousers.

While, Chavan fixed deal worth Rs 60 lakh with bookies to give away 14 and more runs in a over in a match between RR and Mumbai IndianS on 15th may 2013, adds the report.

The Delhi Police last week decided to file an appeal in the High Court against a city court order discharging all the 36 accused in the IPL-6 spot-fixing case including Sreesanth and two others, Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.

A city court last month had discharged all accused in the 2013 case, saying the police had failed to gather "all necessary ingredients to establish a prima facie case" under stringent MCOCA.

The court, which had dropped all charges against the accused, held that the Special Cell of Delhi Police has been unable to establish any "nexus" or link between accused and crime syndicate allegedly run by underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his close aide Chhota Shakeel who have been declared as proclaimed offenders in the case along with one Sandeep.

The three cricketers, who were banned for life from the game by BCCI immediately after police action in the alleged scam two years ago, were clubbed with underworld fugitive dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel.

They were accused of involvement in organised crime syndicate run by the dons.
