The BCCI’s three-member Disciplinary Committee, headed by President Shashank Manohar, will take a decision on the fate of tainted cricketers, Ajit Chandila and Hiken Shah, on Tuesday.

The two players had met the committee members in person in Mumbai to answer questions put to them on December 24 before the three-man panel deferred taking a decision by giving them time till January 4 to file a written response to the charges of spot-fixing against them.

The three-member disciplinary committee comprises Manohar, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Niranjan Shah.

Chandila was arrested by the police for trying to spot-fix IPL games in 2013 along with Rajasthan Royals teammates Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan, both of whom have been banned for life by the BCCI.

Shah approached one of his colleagues from first-class cricket, who was also a member of one of the IPL teams. The “inappropriately approached” player had reported it to his franchise team, which passed on the information to Anti Corruption Unit of the BCCI.

ACU head Ravi Sawani was also present during the December 24 meeting.

“The new disciplinary committee members asked me the same questions as were asked by Delhi police. I have said whatever I told Delhi Police. Everyone knows what the court has said. I hope I will get justice from this new committee. I don’t know when the verdict will be given,” Chandila told reporters after his disposition.
