FORMER Test bowler Sreesanth and two other Indian cricketers were arrested yesterday for alleged spot-fixing during this year's IPL. Delhi police claimed Sreesanth (right) alerted illegal bookmakers that he was ready to implement a scam by tucking a towel into his trousers. Sreesanth, plus Rajasthan Royals team-mates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, are accused of agreeing to concede a specified number of runs during three games. Delhi chief of police Neeraj Kumar said 11 bookmakers had also been arrested, but denied suggestions that Australian bowler Shaun Tait had been involved. The Indian cricket board said they were 'shocked and surprised' by the arrests. President N Srinivasan added: 'I am equally sad that a player who played Tests for India is involved. But that does not mean the entire game is corrupt. 'I do not agree the IPL cannot continue. We will take all steps to root out this kind of corruption.' Last year, five Indian players were banned for corruption in domestic cricket.
