Ankeet Chavan is allowed to play professional cricket again as BCCI lifts the ban
Cricket is a tricky game wherein millions try their luck each year and only a few of them can make a place in the national team. Then some are so unlucky that they lose this golden opportunity to play for their country due to some petty motives. One such player is Ankeet Chavan.
Ankeet Chavan was banned from cricket in 2013 due to the charges of spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League. The player was arrested on the charges of spot-fixing by Delhi Police along with Ajit Chandila and Sreesanth. All three players were playing for Rajasthan Royals at the time. It was the sixth edition of the IPL and the last for all these players. As they were banned from the sport by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Ankeet Chavan is allowed to play professional cricket again as BCCI lifts the ban.
But miracles do take place and one such miracle has taken place for Ankeet Chavan. BCCI has decided to lift the ban imposed on the player and now he would be able to play professional cricket again. Sources within the Mumbai Cricket Association confirmed this development on Tuesday. The source said that the board has decided to end the ban on Chavan. Now he can play professional cricket.
These three players were banned from playing professional cricket for life by the disciplinary committee of BCCI. Though the players were given a clean chit from the Delhi Court. And were discharged of all the charges against them the world of cricket had not opened for them. The ban was not lifted and the players were left in oblivion. But now it’s Ankeet’s time to make a comeback. Sreesanth’s ban was lifted last year and he has already started his 2nd inning domestic cricket. He even represented Kerala in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Now it’s Ankeet’s turn to shine again.
