5 Indian domestic players facing allegations of corruption have been banned by the BCCI's disciplinary committee.

The BCCI announced the penalties after studying a report on the allegations, which had arisen in May after an India TV sting and alluded to the five being involved in match-fixing and negotiating for extra - and illegal - pay.

The harshest punishment was dealt to Madhya Pradesh fast bowler TP Sudhindra, who was handed a life ban after being found guilty of "receiving a consideration to spot-fix" in a domestic game.

Uttar Pradesh fast bowler Shalabh Srivastava will be out of the game for 5 years after the committee deemed him guilty of agreeing, and negotiating terms, to fix a match though no fixing eventually took place.

Three other players were given one-year bans for bringing the game into disrepute through "loose talk and unsubstantiated bragging": Madhya Pradesh batsman Mohnish Mishra, Goa offspinner Amit Yadav and Himachal Pradesh all-rounder Abhinav Bali.

The punishments take effect from May 15, the date on which the IPL governing council suspended them.

The report had been compiled by Ravi Sawani, head of the BCCI's new anti-corruption unit, after India TV's sting.
