South African player charged for match-fixing
A former South African player has been charged for match-fixing.
According to a report by a famous cricket web site Cricinfo, the name of the player hasn’t been disclosed.
The report refers to a press release given by Cricket South Africa in December last year stating that this player had tried to illegally influence in a South African T20 domestic match.
The concerned player has also been charged for refusing to co operate with its enquires.
The report also mentions there are a number of players who fall in the circle of match-fixing enquiry as they were unable to report regarding the match-fixing offer.
Such players failing to report regarding this offer could be banned for 5 years considering it as an offence as per ICC’s anti corruption law.
Speaking in December last year, Haroon Lorgat the head of South Africa Cricket said ” Our Board has a zero tolerance against corruption and we have all the necessary legal structures in place to effectively deal with any corrupt activity.”
