Petersen comes clean on fixing scandal

Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Alviro Petersen has revealed some shocking 'facts' over his involvement in Cricket South Africa's (CSA) most recent match-fixing investigation. 

CSA suspended Gulam Bodi for 20 years following his confession of trying to fix matches in last year's RAM SLAM T20 Challenge, and since then names of other cricketers have been linked to the saga. 

Petersen took to his Twitter page on Friday morning to clear the air after a media report in Wisden India suggested that he was the latest name under investigation. 

Petersen says that he does not consider himself to be under investigation, and confirmed that he had approached CSA with knowledge of corruption just three days after the scandal had been made public.

Petersen has been in fine form for the Highveld Lions this season, finishing the Momentum One Day Cup as the tournament's leading run scorer.

He explained his stance in a series of tweets:
