Ex-Rajasthan Royals player Ajit Chandila’s life ban from Cricket has been reduced to seven years by the ombudsman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Vineet Saran. Ajit Chandila, along with two of his Rajasthan Royals teammates back in the IPL 2013, S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, were slapped with lifetime bans from cricket after they were accused of indulging in spot-fixing. This was the biggest scandal which had completely rocked the sixth edition of the cash-rich league and brought about a massive havoc in the functionings of the IPL as well.
