New Delhi: The Delhi Police has filed a chargesheet in a 13-year-old match-fixing case, which involves some South African players, including Hansie Cronje, their then captain.
The case dates back to the year 2000 when the Crime Branch of Delhi Police revealed that an India-South Africa One Day International (ODI) match played in March was fixed. The police said they intercepted phone conversations between London-based bookie Sanjeev Chawla and Cronje which suggested that money was exchanged to fix the match.
Though he initially denied the allegations, Cronje later admitted before an enquiry commission that he took 15,000 dollars to leak information about forecasts before the match after which he was banned for life. He died in a helicopter crash in 2002.
