Rajasthan Royals co-owners Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra Thursday said they were in shock after three of their franchise players were arrested on the charges of spot-fixing.

"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," Shilpa Shetty said on the social networking site Twitter.

"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:(."

Her comments came after India fast bowler S. Sreesanth as well as his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested in Mumbai late Wednesday night for alleged spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Besides the three players, Delhi Police also arrested seven bookies from Delhi, Mumbai and
Ahmedabad in connection with spot-fixing, which includes bowling no-balls or wides at pre-determined times.

The three players were arrested after Rajasthan Royals' match with Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium Wednesday night. Rajasthan Royals lost the match by 14 runs.

Earlier, Kundra too showed his frustration at the timing of the incident and said it was not possible for IPL teams to fix matches but players, who lack integrity, can be involved in spot-fixing.

"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," Kundra tweeted.

"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," he added.
