Cricketer S Sreesanth has been charged with 38 other people over a spot-fixing scandal that has rocked the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Indian prosecutors brought charges of criminal conspiracy and cheating against S 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.
S Sreesanth and team-mates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan deny the charges.
They were arrested in May along with scores of bookmakers.

A separate spot-fixing investigation by cricket officials led to cricket chief N Srinivasan stepping aside last month pending the outcome of the probe.
He left his post as the head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested for suspected spot-fixing.
He and his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise were exonerated by the inquiry, but the Bombay High Court has now ordered a “re-investigation”.
Correspondents say the ruling could delay the return of N Srinivasan.
The scandal broke in May when S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested.
S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan were later freed on bail, but Ajit Chandila remains in jail.
The trio, all bowlers, were suspended by India’s cricket board and the Rajasthan Royals.

Arts writer Charlotte Cripps from Ladbroke Grove, London, UK, was off to a private beauty therapist for a lovely session of pampering when a botched procedure left her forever “permanently scared”.
Charlotte Cripps, 40, underwent Intense Pulsed Light treatment – where light is used to smooth the complexion – for a newspaper story in 2008.
With the treatment recommended by a friend, Charlotte Cripps was shocked when she felt “excruciating pain” as the technician ran a hand-held machine over her chest and face at a London spa.
“I left the department store and got home within about 20 minutes. I looked in the mirror and I screamed,” Charlotte Cripps said.
“My chest was covered in red burn marks that look a little like when you brand an animal.
“I couldn’t put a duvet over me or anything because it was just so raw and painful,” Charlotte Cripps told the BBC’s Inside Out London programme, which was broadcast last night at 7:30 p.m.

Charlotte Cripps, who is a writer for The Independent, spent months in pain after the treatment in 2008 and has now been given a five-figure sum in compensation by the spa’s insurers.
The woman said: “I think there should be laws brought in so you can’t have IPL or Botox unless it is administered under the supervision of a doctor.”
1.5 million cosmetic surgery procedures will be carried out in the UK this year, many in lunch breaks or at parties.
Heidi Worman, a paramedical cosmetic make-up practitioner, said recent moves by the Government to deregulate IPL and the laser industry were a step in the wrong direction.
“We need these regulations just to protect the public,” she said, adding she was finding a greater need for treatments to correct cosmetic surgery.
