    Posted by on Jan 13th, 2016

    Drama is unfolding in the South African cricket world after it has emerged that several players are in the process of being charged for match-fixing during the recent Ram Slam Twenty20 tournament. One of the players involved is apparenty an ex-Proteas player.

    The Ram Slam tournament took place in November and December last year, but cricket commentator Neil Manthorpe was on radio recently giving more details and said the ex-Proteas players was not really well known.

    Cricket South Africa said in late December that it “charged a perpetrator, operating as an intermediary, under its anticorruption code” with “contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects of the (franchise Twenty20 competition) and with failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to co-operate with an investigation by its designated anti corruption official” [BD Live].

    I spoke to a few of my cricketing mates who have their suspicions as to who the players are and which games they thought involved match-fixing. There were several examples mentioned of strange tactics.

    Do you have any suspicions as to who the ex-Proteas player could be?

    Just have to look at that semi final performance by the Cobra’s vs KZN and re think that close loss. Cobras were coasting, Commentator HD including on field player KP accepted it was a done deal we would win. Run a ball with wickets in the bank, 3 overs to go…. and then some of the most outlandish shot making youd ever see and Cobras lost by 2 runs.

    Cricket is a funny game and one wicket leads to another… maybe. Im not so sure now
