Former India captain Sourav Ganguly today said he was happy for the three cricketers cleared by a Delhi court of spot fixing charges and insisted that the Board should not have a problem with the order.
The Patiala House court today dropped all charges of spot-fixing against the trio of former India pacer S Sreesanth, Mumbai left-arm spinner Ankeet Chavan and Rajasthan off-spinner Ajit Chandila.
“It’s very good for them. The court has done whatever they felt right,” Ganguly told reporters at the Cricket Association of Bengal’s annual prize distribution here.
Sreesanth and Chavan are currently serving life bans imposed by the BCCI, while Chandila’s hearing is still on.
Asked whether Sreesanth could still make a comeback, Ganguly said: “The court has taken away charges from him (Sreesanth), I don’t think BCCI will have a problem. Anyway, it’s up to BCCI now.”
Ganguly, however, refused to comment on the legal order.
“It’s too much of a legal matter, I won’t be able to answer this question.”
Former India chief selector K Srikkanth, who was here as the chief guest, meanwhile refused to comment on the verdict.
