Johannesburg - Former Proteas, Titans and Lions player Gulam Bodi is apparently a key figure in the investigation into the latest cricket match-fixing scandal, Netwerk24 has reported. 

It reported that three sources had confirmed he was being investigated. It also said he had been provisionally suspended in December. 

News24 has also independently confirmed that Bodi is being investigated. 

It was previously reported that the "intermediary" in the ongoing Ram Slam T20 match-fixing case is a former Proteas player.

In mid-December 2015, Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed that its Anti-Corruption and Security Unit had charged a perpetrator - operating as an intermediary - under its Anti-Corruption Code for contriving to "fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects of last year's tournament".

In addition, the "intermediary" was also charged with failing or refusing to co-operate with the investigation.

The tournament, which ran between November 1 and December 12 2015, was won by the Titans who beat the Dolphins by seven wickets in a one-sided final at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

CSA has remained tight-lipped over the identity of the individual to date, but according to respected cricket writer and commentator Neil Manthorp, the ringleader is a former national player - who is almost certain to face prison time for his actions.
