YET ANOTHER MATCH FIXING BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN PLAYERS, FOUR OF THEM FOUND GUILTY AND GOT BANNED.


South African cricket board as we all of us know is very strict regarding the allegations if any or any player found to be guilty serious steps are taken against them, this time it’s Jean Symes, Thami Tsolekile, Ethy Mbhalathi & Pumelela Matshikwe is being treated harshly on this account.


As per the CSA in their official release that is issued by them, Thami Tsolekile former wicket keeper of South Africa is abandoned with a long 12 years ban for many misdeeds, among them the one mostly stated is the match in Ram Slam T20 in 2015 in which he was being suspected but no proper evidence was found against him.


The duo Ethy Mbhalathi and Pumelela Matshikwe is not familiar with the national team as of now, the duo represented for Titans and Lions respectively and they also have been announced a much awaiting 10 years ban by the board he was also alleged for the same T20 match in Ram Slam and was let free because of no subsequent evidence found. 


Lastly Jean Symes who played for the lions and an all-rounder is upon a 7 years ban because of the fact that he was knowing about the payment that might have been given to him and he didn’t informed the board and by this breaching the code of the board.


All the four players have accepted the bans, which are active from August 1.


"Whilst 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. In fact, they all went further and accepted, or agreed to accept in the future, sums of money which they knew or ought to have known was given to them to partake in activity that would amount to a breach of the Code, or bring the game into disrepute," Haroon Lorgat, the chief executive of CSA, said on Monday (August 8).

"Our attitude towards any form of corruption is clear and hence why we have imposed such firm sanctions. To their credit, all of these players eventually admitted their misconduct and co-operated with the investigators. They have also shown remorse for their actions. Importantly, each of them has indicated a willingness to engage in anti-corruption education to assist us to prevent this kind of conduct in the future," he added.
