South African captain Hansie Cronje is a man of enormous integrity and honesty. He and his team-mates Nicky Boje, Herschelle Gibbs and Pieter Strydom are emphatic that there is no substance to allegations that they were involved in match fixing during the One-Day International series in India. The UCBSA believes that these players have not been involved in the practice of match fixing.What happened next is well documented in many places, including during the proceedings of the King Commission inquiry and Dr. Ali Bacher's confirmation that Hansie Cronje hadn't been truthful.
Let us say that unequivocally we are shattered. The UCB and the government have been deceived.In the context of uncertainty about whether Nicky Boje will feature in the ICC Champions Trophy in India later this year, the same Dr. Bacher comes out and says this about Nicky Boje's involvement.
Nicky Boje was innocent. I know that for a fact. When it all broke, Herschelle Gibbs' body language was not good. Boje was fine. I can read people. He was innocent.Indeed you can, Dr. Bacher, as has been proved earlier.
