Six Indian international cricketers face investigation for their alleged roles in a match-fixing scandal.

As part of a report which yesterday found a Chennai Super Kings official guilty of illegal betting, a number of present and former players will be interviewed.

Reports in India say 2 of the current players who will be asked to testify are MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina who both play for the Chennai Super Kings.

Since the IPL's debut in 2008, the league has been dogged by various allegations including kickbacks in television rights as well as irregularities in sponsorship deals and the bidding process for franchises.
