The IPL spot-fixing controversy broke out in May with the arrest of Rajasthan Royals players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan by the Delhi Police for conceding a specified number of runs per over in return for money from illegal bookmakers.
Sreesanth and Chavan were recently slapped with life bans by the BCCI.
The BCCI also handed out a five-year ban to Royals' Amit Singh, while another Rajasthan cricketer Siddharth Trivedi got a one-year suspension.
There was no decision on Chandila, who recently got out on bail. His role is still being probed, and a decision will be taken soon.
