According to Dailymail.co.uk, both the concerned two Test players are still very much active and with their names being dragged into the affair it can create much crisis for the cricket in South Africa. It has also been observed that the new or inexperienced players have had instances of ‘spot-fixing’ communicated to them which they have either responded or have have to report it to the concerned authorities in South Africa’s domestic Twenty20(T20) competition.

Earlier, Gulam Bodi was named by CSA as the mediator tyring to fix or influence matches in the recently concluded Ram Slam Twenty20 tournament. Bodi had played only two one-day internationals and one T20 for South Africa in 2007. READ: Makhaya Ntini: Ram Slam T20 match-fixing culprits are hurting themselves and their families

It may be recalled that Cronje incident had similar approaches being made to young and susceptible players who were not sure of their place in the national team or in the game of cricket. If the two unnamed players and Bodi are found guilty, they will certainly not get any kindness from cricketing fraternity and fans alike.

Earlier in a press release, Cricket South Africa (CSA) had said Bodi had been charged under its anti-corruption code as an intermediary with “contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects” of the 2014/15 domestic Twenty20 competition.  Bodi will also be facing a criminal investigation under  South Africa’s Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities law which includes a clause to cover sporting corruption here known as ‘Hansie’s law.’
