Cape Town - The latest reports from the ongoing investigation into the match-fixing scandal that rocked South African cricket earlier this year is that several top players may be banned for up to 20 years - or more.
According to this weekend's Sunday Times, at least one former Proteas player faces a life-time ban.
In January 2016, former Lions/Titans/Dolphins batsman Gulam Bodi confessed his involvement in match-fixing and was slapped with a 20-year ban, five of which were suspended.
Bodi's international representation was limited to two ODIs and one T20 for South Africa.
Bodi made his ODI debut in 2007 against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, scoring 51 and 32 in the series, while his sole T20 came later that year in Port Elizabeth against the West Indies, where he scored eight.
At the time, Bodi's Lions team-mate Thami Tsolekile was also implicated.
According to the Sunday Times report, investigations into another two Lions players - batsman Alviro Petersen and bowler
Lonwabo Tsotsobe - are now complete.
The match-fixing investigation stems from last year's Ram Slam T20 Challenge in which the Titans beat the Dolphins in the final.
When contacted by Sport24 on Sunday, Cricket South Africa (CSA) said they were unable to comment on the matter as the investigation was still ongoing.
