Cape Town - Gulam Bodi could still face criminal charges for his role in attempted match-fixing during last year's RAM SLAM T20 Challenge. 

Bodi, a former Protea, was banned from all cricket-related activities for 20 years after he confessed his guilt to Cricket South Africa (CSA). 

But the latest development in the saga is that the ban does not necessarily mean that he has avoided criminal charges.

According to, CSA has now passed on all of the information they have in their possession to the South African police. 

Match-fixing is a crime in South Africa and if the case made it to court it would be handled by the Hawks. 

While there are believed to be other names involved in the scandal, CSA has remained mum on the matter saying that they cannot reveal anything further while the investigation is ongoing. 

Title sponsors RAM, meanwhile, are awaiting the outcome of the investigation before deciding whether or not they will be renewing their sponsorship of South Africa's most lucrative domestic tournament.
