How match-fixing tarnishes the cricket game

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has imposed a 20-year ban on former Proteas batsman Gulam Bodi after he admitted charges of contriving or attempting to fix matches in the 2015 RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Series.

CEO of Cricket South Africa Haroon Lorgat on Tuesday spoke to John Robbie about the terms of the ban and what happens next.

Evidence suggests that we picked up this issue in the planning phase and no fix actually materialising.

An anti-corruption code we instituted from September 2015 obliges a player to report when approached for fixing.
