The Income Tax department of India gave a clean chit to the five banned domestic cricketers, who were involved in the Indian Premier League spot-fixing case, from any financial misconduct in order to fix matches, according to the Times of India. The department, which conducted an investigation into the financial transactions of the five players for charges of spot-fixing, found that the cricketers have not received any pecuniary benefit in cash or by the way of fund deposits in their personal accounts. They are now expected to submit a report soon and would also inform the sports ministry of the latest developments in the case.
