Shilpa Shetty: 'We @# RR in shock with this news,coming to terms with it.Will react once we have more info and concrete evidence on the matter:( RR is a team that Fights with integrity,Rahul being a front runner..Sad this has happened so close to the Playoffs. This too shall pass.'

Raj Kundra: 'Just when IPL was going on so smoothly without controversies I woke up to the news of 3 RR players alleged spot fixing. Investigations r on. When asked the repeated question is IPL fixed my answer is always IPL teams CAN'T be fixed but individual players who lack integrity can.'

Ken Ghosh: 'Shocking to hear about spot fixing in IPL. Punish those guilty.'

Shekhar Kapur: 'Shocked at spot fixing in IPL? Why? Its huge stakes, financial manipulation n pure entertainment."Its not cricket O'l Chap" Ofcourse its not. Spot d Spot fixer is d new game on TV during #IPL matches. Winner gets a hug from the Spot fixer live on TV after Man of d Match Award.'

Rohit Roy: 'Afte a hard fought game at wankhede last eve, woke up to th shameful n disturbing news abt Sree, chavan n chandila.. Most frustrating for a cricket lover who lays out all his emotions while the game is on n quite a long time after.. Sad.'

Pritish Nandy: 'It's getting to a stage where anything appearing on prime time TV risks losing credibility. Movie awards, IPL... even news. Its all tamasha.'

Mubina Rattonsey: 'Saddened by the morning news. Its so unfair to the pure spirit of this game n to team RR n Dravid who got here wit integrity n hardwork.'

Manoj Bajpayee: 'How can a spots person go against his own team? beyond any logic.'

Kunal Kohli: 'Match fixers should not just get life ban but should also be banned from commentating or anything to do with the game for life.'

Mandira Bedi: 'Nothing hurts a game and its fans more than Match Fixing. Most disturbed to hear about the recent fixing charges. #Sreesanth #shame And the worst of it is that they play for a team whose Captain is one of the most honorable men in cricket.'
