Two ‘active’ former Test cricketers are believed to be involved in the fresh match-fixing scandal that hit South African cricket on Thursday, English daily The Guardian reported.
Investigators working on the case are understood to have interrogated 47 players and staff in the country.
On Thursday, former South Africa One-day International and Twenty20 player Gulam Bodi was named as the person charged under Cricket South Africa’s anti-corruption code.
Bodi was charged with contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects of the 2015 South African domestic Twenty20 competition.
Those proven guilty to have manipulated matches could face potential jail sentences with match-fixing illegal in South Africa under the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act Law.
The law contains a clause for sporting events.
It was passed in 2004, four years after the former SA captain Hansie Cronje was banned for life for his involvement in match-fixing.
