New Delhi - India's uncapped fast bowler TP Sudhindra has been handed a life ban for spot-fixing in a local match, the country's cricket chiefs announced on Saturday.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also punished four other domestic players, with Shalabh Srivastava banned for five years, and Mohnish Mishra, Abhinav Bali and Amit Yadav each for one year.

"The disciplinary committee held Sudhindra guilty of actually receiving a consideration to spot-fix in a domestic cricket match, and hence imposed an exemplary penalty on him," BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.

The BCCI last month suspended the players from all cricket after a sting operation by a local TV channel during this season's Indian Premier League (IPL) highlighted alleged fixing and corruption in domestic matches.

The inquiry was carried out by former police officer Ravi Sawani, who had previously served on the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.
