Former Rajasthan Royals and India pacer Siddharth Trivedi was back in the domestic field as he made a triumphant return for Saurashtra in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match against Mumbai after having served a 1 year ban by Board of Control for Cricket in India known as BCCI for not disclosed the approach by the bookie. In the List A match he took four for 42 runs against Mumbai taking wickets Iqbal Abdullah, of Bravish Shetty, Sufiyan Sheikh and Suryakumar Yadav.

It must be remembered that Trivedi’s name was under focus as he had met a few ostensible bookies on demand of contaminated cricketer Ajit Chandila, unintentionally.

Former Rajasthan Royals player Amit Singh was handed a five year ban while another Rajasthan Royals cricketer Siddharth Trivedi got away with a lighter 1 year ban after the Board of Control for Cricket in India disciplinary team met to discuss anti-corruption head Ravi Sawani’s report on scandal.

Siddharth Trivedi was banned for a span of one year from playing any illustrative Cricket or in any way being connected with the activities of the Board of Control for Cricket in India or its affiliates. The scam which broke out in May, 2013 had shaken the Twenty20 event IPL and led to a huge whipping within the Board. Trivedi was cleared of the spot-fixing charges but were found culpable of not reporting the approaches made by bookies.

The meeting also supposed importance because of the presence of Srinivasan.
