The scandal has shrouded the Twenty20 tournament in recent weeks.
Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming believes that the ongoing spot-fixing saga distracted his players ahead of the IPL play-off final with Mumbai Indians.
CSK lost the final to Mumbai by 23 runs, despite a defiant innings of 63 runs from captain MS Dhoni, but also found themselves embroiled in the fixing scandal.
Chennai owner Gurunath Meiyappan had his house raided by police for his role in the spot-fixing scandal and he is also the son-in-law of disgraced India Cements chief executive Narayanaswami Srinivasan.
The whole scandal has undermined what was up until then a successful IPL tournament and it remains to be seen whether the brand can recover from it.
