Former Proteas cricketer Gulam Bodi has been named by Cricket South Africa (CSA) as the player charged in connection with a match fixing scandal in the domestic Twenty20 competition.

Bodi made his debut for South Africa in 2007 and played two One-Day Internationals and a T20 International in the year.

The 37-year-old has been charged under the CSA Anti-Corruption Code for improperly attempting to influence the results of the matches in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge in 2015.

CSA Chief executive Haroon Lorgat confirmed that Bodi is currently co-operating with the CSA officials and the board will take due action in accordance with the rules in the anti-corruption code.

"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," said Lorgat.

"Mr Bodi is presently co-operating with the CSA Anti-Corruption officials.

“We now await his response to the charges and the matter will take its course in accordance with the process outlined in the Code." 

Bodi has been provisionally suspended by the board and cannot take part in any match, event or in any other activity that is organised under the International Cricket Council, CSA or any other national board and its affiliates.
