Rajasthan Royals cricketer Ankeet Chavan, who is out on bail after being arrested for alleged involvement in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, on Thursday said he is hoping to get a "positive" verdict from the judiciary to restart his cricketing career.     

The 27-year-old Rajasthan Royals player refused to comment on the case against him. "I have always given my 100 per cent, always played my cricket with passion. I just hope that I get a positive result from the judiciary so that I can start my career and my cricket again," he told reporters here.     

"I would just like to say, the matter is subjudice, I really don't want to comment on it," he added. Chavan and his Rajasthan teammate, India Test pacer SSreesanth, were released from Tihar jail on Tuesday along with 17 other accused.

All of them were granted bail by a Delhi court. "I would like to thank the judiciary for giving me bail. I would also like to thank my lawyer, he has really worked a lot for me. Secondly my family and friends, they have supported me a lot," said a relieved Chavan.     

Chavan was earlier released on bail in the first week ofthis month to get married to his longtime friend Neha Sambari.
