It's upto the individual players to act responsibly: Sehwag

In what could emerge as yet another match-fixing scandal to hit the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) - following the 2013 spot-fixing case that led to the arrest of cricketers S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan - three suspected bookies were arrested from Kanpur on Thursday.

"This was an outcome of the ACU of the BCCI, having worked closely with various law enforcement agencies, who will continue further investigations, in this matter", the BCCI said and its officials have ruled out involvement of players. "If my mind is clean, I can meet anyone", Sehwag, who is also the mentor of Kings XI Punjab, stated in an event here in Mumbai. "You can't stop all these things. It's the player's own responsibility to ensure that no one questions your integrity", said the former dashing batsman at a meet and greet session organised by 92.7 BIG FM. Now [if someone makes allegations] I would say wipe off all my records.

A report in the Hindustan Times revealed that the police are also looking into questioning two Gujarat Lions players, who were allegedly named by the suspected bookies.

"If players take such type of responsibility then these guys (bookies) won't meet you".

Ducks eager for rematch with Rinne's Predators in West final
If the Oilers want to win Game 7 , they will have to do the same thing and come out with monumental energy from the get-go. Also, you would want to rest your players game six and come back strong game seven to win it all gaining momentum.

However, sources said a few players belonging to Gujarat Lions, who next host holders Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Green Park on Saturday, are likely to be asked to clarify their meeting some unknown people before Lions' match against Delhi Daredevils played on Wednesday.

"I don't remember meeting anyone unknown in the hotels because it's my choice". Similarly, if my relative is coming to meet me, I ensure people in my relation only meet me. "The hallmark of a good player is who can come out of bad form and Virat knows very well how to come back into good form", Sehwag said.

"It is all about player's awareness".

"This game is such that it will give you a lot, but if your image is tarnished then you also lose the respect. People love cricket in this country but if someone does something wrong with this game, they will be sidelined.", said Sehwag.
