Former SAfrica batsman Bodi charged with match-fixing

JOHANNESBURG (AP) Former South Africa batsman Gulam Bodi has been charged with match-fixing by the country's national cricket body.

Cricket South Africa says Bodi, who played two one-day internationals and a Twenty20 game for the Proteas in 2007, is the ''intermediary'' who was charged under its anti-corruption code in December.

The India-born Bodi is charged with ''contriving to fix'' matches or parts of matches in South Africa's domestic Twenty20 competition late last year. Bodi didn't play in the tournament. Players who did appear are believed to also be involved in the fixing, although none have been named.

CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat says in a statement Thursday that Bodi is ''cooperating with the CSA anti-corruption officials.'' CSA is awaiting Bodi's response to the charges.
