Indian cricketer S Sreesanth has been charged with 38 other people over a spot-fixing scandal that has rocked the Indian Premier League.

Prosecutors brought charges of criminal conspiracy and cheating against Sreesanth, two of his Rajasthan Royals team-mates, and other non-cricketers.

Spot-fixing involves players bowling wides and no-balls at certain times arranged beforehand with bookmakers.

Sreesanth and team-mates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan deny the charges.

They were arrested in May along with scores of bookmakers.
