It was not possible for Twenty 20 League teams to fix matches but players, who lack integrity, can be involved in spot fixing, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra said on Thursday.
"Just when T20 was going on so smoothly without controversies I woke up to the news of 3 RR players alleged spot fixing. Investigations r on," Kundra tweeted.
"When asked the repeated question is T20 fixed my answer is always T20 teams can't be fixed but individual players who lack integrity can," he added.
Kundra's comments came after fast bowler Sreesanth as well as his Rajasthan Royals colleagues Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested in Mumbai on Thursday for alleged spot fixing in the T20 League matches.
Besides the three players, Delhi Police also arrested seven bookies from Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad in connection with spot fixing, which includes bowling no-balls or wides at pre-determined times.
The three players were arrested after Rajasthan Royals match with Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday night. Rajasthan Royals lost the match by 14 runs.
