India bowler Sri Sreesanth has been banned for life after being found guilty of spot-fixing.

The 30-year-old was found to have committed the offence during the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League while playing for Rajasthan Royals, and after an initial suspension, the pace bowler has now been banned from the sport.

On their official Twitter account, the BCCI said: "Sreesanth banned for life from playing any representative cricket, or in any way being associated with activities of BCCI or its affiliates."

Sreesanth made 27 appearances for India's Test side, while also representing their one-day team on 53 occasions.
