Ankeet Chavan seeks MCA help to allow him to play following Ombudsman's order

Chavan was banned for life by the BCCI for his involvement in the 2013 Spot Fixing Scandal along with S Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila

Tainted Mumbai spinner Ankeet Chavan, who was banned by the BCCI for his involvement in the 2013 IPL fixing scandal, has requested Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) to revoke his life ban and and allow him to play cricket once again. The MCA have also posted this in its agenda for the Apex Council meeting, to be held on June 11, where a decision will be taken.

Chavan has already received the letter from MCA Ombudsman, who in his order a month back (May 3), said that Chavan's punishment being reduced to seven years. It ended on September 2020.

"I have pleadingly requested the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) to help and support me like it has always done in the past and take my application forward. The Ombudsman, in his order a month back (May 3), said that my punishment be reduced to seven years which ended in September 2020," Chavan told Cricbuzz.

Chavan was banned for life by the BCCI for his involvement in the 2013 Spot Fixing Scandal along with S Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila. All three of them were a part of the Rajasthan Royals' set-up in the 2013 IPL.

"I have written to the BCCI to have my ban revoked and attached the Ombudsman order too. But I have not heard from the BCCI and hence I have requested the MCA to intervene," Chavan said.
