Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, two of the three Rajasthan Royals players arrested after allegations of spot-fixing, have applied for bail. A Delhi court will hear their case on May 28. Chavan had been moved to judicial custody till June 4 before he made his application. Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila, the other Royals player arrested this month, were remanded to two more days of police custody. While making his bail plea, Chavan informed the court that his wedding was scheduled for June 2.

Royals had already suspended the contracts of all three players and also filed a police complaint against them. The players were allegedly promised money ranging from US$36,000 to 109,000 by bookies for each over of under-performance.

Eleven bookies were also arrested along with the three players on May 16. One of the middlemen was identified as Jiju Janardhan, described by the police as Sreesanth's close friend and team-mate at the Ernakulam club. Delhi Police had registered cases under the Indian Penal Code section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating, and criminal conspiracy.

Chavan has a wedding planned for June 2? I bet he regrets this information becoming public. I can only imagine what the guests will be discussing at the event.
