CAPE TOWN - Former Proteas cricketer Thami Tsolekile made a second appearance in the Goodwood Magistrates Court today.

The former wicketkeeper is alleged to have assaulted a boy outside a local school.

Although he is yet to plead, Tsolekile has denied the claim.

The 35-year old former Proteas player claims the teenager swore at him and threw stones at his car.

Tsolekile is accused of then forcing the 14-year old into his car and slapping him in the face last month.

He appeared in court today where the case was postponed until 24 October for further investigation.

Tsolekile captained the Lions cricket team and was handed a 12-year ban last month for match-fixing.
