Sreesanth's Rajasthan Royal team-mate Ankeet Chavan has also sought relief on the grounds that his marriage is scheduled on June 2 2013.

Both the players moved their bail pleas before Metropolitan Magistrate Anuj Aggarwal who fixed May 28 for hearing before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Lokesh Kumar Sharma.

In his bail plea, Sreesanth has said that "no case is made out against me and I have been falsely implicated." Sreesanth's advocate Vishal Gosain said that, "the penal provisions invoked against him are not made out. He has not cheated anybody."

Gosain also said, "The particular over, about which the police is saying was fixed, was bowled by Sreesanth in a regular manner."

Meanwhile, Chavan, who was on Sunday remanded in judicial custody till June 4, sought bail saying that his marriage was nearing and the ceremonies were going on.

His lawyer Kishore Gayakwad told the court that "Chavan's marriage has already been fixed and it is on June 2, so he be granted bail",

Sreesanth, Chavan and their teammate Ajit Chandila, who all were playing for Rajasthan Royals, were arrested in Mumbai by Delhi police for their alleged involvement in spot-fixing in T20 League matches for payments up to Rs. 60 lakhs for giving away pre-determined number of runs in an over.
