refused to comment on the case against him.
"I have always given my 100%, always played my cricket with passion. I just hope that I get a positive result from the judiciary so that I can start my career and my cricket again," he told reporters here.
"I would just like to say, the matter is subjudice, I really don't want to comment on it," he added.
Chavan and his Rajasthan teammate, India Test pacer S Sreesanth, were released from Tihar jail on Tuesday along with 17 other accused. All of them were granted bail by a Delhi court.
"I would like to thank the judiciary for giving me bail. I would also like to thank my lawyer, he has really worked a lot for me. Secondly my family and friends, they have supported me a lot," said a relieved Chavan.
Chavan was earlier released on bail in the first week of this month to get married to his longtime friend Neha Sambari.
