STORY: Former South Africa international Gulam Bodi has been banned from all cricket-related activities for 20 years after admitting he attempted to fix matches in the country’s domestic Twenty20 competition this season, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on Monday (January 25).

CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat told reporters said Bodi was immediately banned from any international or national match.

“Bodi is immediately banned for a period of 20 years from participating in or being involved in any capacity in any international or domestic match, or any other kind of function, event or activity – other than authorised anti-corruption education or rehabilitation programmes, that is authorised, organised, sanctioned, recognised or supported in any way by CSA or the ICC or any other national cricket federation or any member of a national cricket federation,” said Lorgat.

Cricket has been hit by several separate incidents of match-fixing in recent years.

“Our attitude to corruption will always be one of zero tolerance, there is no doubt that Mr Bodi’s actions have threatened the integrity and image of the game that we love most and he must handed a strong punishment,” added Lorgat.

Bodi was subject to an investigation conducted by the organisation’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.

Five years of Bodi’s ban have been suspended on condition that he is not found guilty of a similar offence and that he participates in corruption-related player education programmes.

Lorgat did not reveal if any players were being investigated for their potential roles in the saga, but CSA did confirm “certain aspects of the investigation are ongoing”.

Bodi, who was born in India and moved to South Africa as a teenager, played two one-day internationals and one Twenty20 match for the national side in 2007.
