The BCCI probe into the IPL fixing scandal has found four players - Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan and Amit Singh - guilty.

The probe was led by Ravi Sawani. His report has recommended bans ranging from five years to life for the players. 

The probe has found the players guilty of multiple offences. Interestingly, match-fixing is one of them, not spot-fixing.

"There is no specific mitigating factor that would require any mercy while sanctioning the aforesaid guilty players," wrote Sawani in his report.

"The anti-corruption education given to the three players had no impact on the conduct. Therefore, the three players deserve no leniency whatsoever," he added.

The four disgraced players will appear before the BCCI disciplinary committee in New Delhi today to present their case. 

Two other players, Siddharth Trivedi and Harmeet Singh, have been found guilty of not reporting an approach by bookies. They face a ban of 1-5 years.
