Every cricketer faces many ups and downs in their career, and only some stronger people survive in this situation. While every player sacrifices many things to climb on the top position of the game, their all hard work gets destroyed once they have been involved in any corruption, or specifically in match-fixing.
There are some top international cricketers who have been banned after they have been alleged to be involved in the match-fixing or spot-fixing.
Here we are talking about the top five Indian cricketers who have been banned due to their involvement in the match-fixing allegation.
Former Indian cricketer Ajay Sharma hadn’t much successful story for the team India as he played only Test and 31 ODIs where he scored 53 and 424 runs respectively and also managed to take 15 ODI wickets between 1988 and 1993. However, the right-handed batsman was one of the greatest Indian domestic cricketers who scored 10120 runs in 129 matches with an incredible average of 67.46. He smashed 38 centuries and 36 half-centuries in his first-class career.
In 2000, Sharma was handed life-ban from the game for his involvement in the match-fixing. He was found guilty of having associations with bookmakers. However, later in 2014, Sharma was cleared from all the match-fixing charges.
