Cape Town - Former Proteas wicketkeeper Thami Tsolekile was cleared on a charge of assault on Wednesday.
Tsolekile was accused of allegedly assaulting a 14-year-old boy in Pinelands in September last year.
He reportedly grabbed the minor by the chest and slapped him in the face.
In November last year, the court issued a warrant of arrest for Tsolekile after he failed to appear in court.
However, according to Netwerk24, Tsolekile appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate's Court on Wednesday and was acquitted.
Tsolekile was also one of the five South African cricketers banned for match-fixing in August last year.
Tsolekile was slapped with a 12-year ban after he was found guilty of trying to manipulate the results of matches during the 2015 RAM Slam T20 Challenge series.
Other cricketers serving bans include former Proteas opening batsman Alviro Petersen (2 years), Jean Symes (7 years), Ethy Mbhalati (10 years) and Pumelela Matshikwe (10 years).
Tsolekile played three Tests for the Proteas in 2004, scoring 47 runs at an average of 9.40 and he took six catches.
He played 160 first class matches, scoring 5 844 runs (average 30.43) and bagged 499 catches and 35 stumpings.
