CSA investigates Gulam Bodi for alleged match fixing
The former Proteas player is charged with contriving to fix matches in 2015 RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Series.
JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has confirmed former Proteas batsman Gulam Bodi has been charged with contriving to fix or improperly influence aspects of the 2015 RAM SLAM challenge.
Bodi has not been involved in cricket since January 2015.
Last month, the cricket governing body revealed its anti-corruption and security unit was conducting an investigation into spot-fixing in the domestic T20 series.
The CSA's Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat confirmed the charges against Bodi in a statement released this afternoon.
"Following our investigations and due process, we have reached a point where we can confirm that Mr Bodi is the intermediary who was charged by CSA in early December 2015 under the CSA Anti-Corruption Code."
Lorgat says Bodi is currently cooperating with the governing body's anti-corruption officials.
Former Proteas bowler Paul Harris says the CSA needs to rid the game of players who are caught fixing matches.
Harris is Bodi's former team mate at the Titans.
He says if his former team mate is implicated, he must be punished.
CSA maintains it will not comment publicly on the specific facts of this matter as the case is pending.
