Former fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been charged by CSA or several breaches of its Anti-Corruption Code relating to the T20 Challenge Series. Tsotsobe has been under investigation since 2015. But he was not suspended until now. CSA has now provisionally suspended Tsotsobe from playing, coaching or otherwise being involved in any capacity in any match under its jurisdiction. CSA stands for Cricket South Africa.
He became the No. 1 ranked ODI bowler in the world in March 2012 and held the position until September that year.
Local media reported that Thami Tsolekile, Gulam Bodi` Pumi Matshikwe` Jean Symes` Ethy Mbhalati` and Alviro Petersen were found guilty of offences similar to those with which Tsotsobe is now charged.
