A no-ball that went unnoticed by umpire has shocked the bookies during the recent IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab.
Rajasthan Royals pacer Sreesanth was supposed to bowl a 14-runs over as per the deal with the bookies.
The cricketer took out a towel to signal the bookies that he would be bowling a fixed over and delayed the start of the over to allow them to place the bets.
- 1st Ball: Shaun Marsh had faced the delivery from Sreesanth and it’s a dot ball.
- 2nd Ball: Shaun Marsh had hit for four through the covers.
- 3rd Ball: Again a dot ball.
- 4th Ball: Shaun Marsh scored a single.
- 5th Ball: Sreesanth has given away another four which took the over total to 9.
- 6th Ball: Hit for four to take the total to 13. Unfortunately, Umpire hasn’t spotted the no-ball which was intentionally bowled by Sreesanth to make it a 14-run over.
In the phone conversation between Sreesanth and his friend Jiju who is mediator, the cricketer asked his friend whether the bookies will still pay the promised amount as there is nothing wrong from his side.
Later, he contacted the bookies who refused to pay up as they incurred losses and that resulted in an argument. At one stage bookies were fed up with Sreesanth‘s tantrums and they even threatened him with dire consequences.
The Delhi cops have asked BCCI for the footage of fixed over from all the camera angles.
Sreesanth’s Connection With Sakshi
Tainted cricketer Sreesanth and his connection with two Sakshis got exposed today. This surprising connection has shocked many followers of cricket and observers of spot fixing scandal.
With the images of arrested bollywood actor Vindhoo Dhara Singh sitting along Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife Sakshi coming out, there are rumours that Dhoni’s wife knows about the spot fixing scandal. Not stopping here, it was exposed that Sreesanth’s present girlfriend Sakshi Jhala, to whom he gifted a Blackberry phone with the money given by bookies, is a classmate of Dhoni’s wife. Both Sakshi and Sakshi Jhala are classmates at a Managament institute in Aurangabad. More surprisingly, it is Dhoni’s wife Sakshi who introduced Sakshi Jhala to Sreesanth four years back. Sakshi Jhala used to work as airhostess with Kingfisher until the airlines got closed down.
However, many people associated with these two Sakshi girls, asserted that these girls might not have any connection with Spot Fixing at all. For now, Delhi police have also given a clean chit to these girls, and we have to see what will be unearthed in the coming days.
