Four South African players were given lengthy bans by Cricket South Africa for breaching the board's Anti-Corruption Code. Thami Tsolekile, a wicket-keeper who has represented the South African national team in the past, along with Jean Symes, Pumelela Matshikwe, Ethy Mbhalati were the ones found guilty after investigations.
Tsolekile was given a ban of 12 years for "contriving to fix a match or matches" in South Africa's domestic Twenty20 competition, the Ram Slam and not reporting "the full details of an approach to engage in corrupt conduct", according to ESPNCricinfo while the other three received censure for similar breaches of the board's Anti-Corruption Code.“It is our stated position that any form of corruption in the game will be dealt with severely," said chief executive of the CSA, Haroon Lorgat. "While there has been no evidence to suggest that an actual fix in any match was carried out, these players all participated in material discussions about match fixing."
Symes, Matshikwe and Mbhalati expressed regret in separate statements.
