Cape Town - Former Proteas and current Highveld Lions wicketkeeper, Thami Tsolekile, allegedly met with Indian bookmakers to fix cricket games.

According to The Citizen, investigators studying the Gulam Bodi match-fixing case are in possession of a recording allegedly detailing a meeting between Tsolekile and Indian bookmakers.

The recording, in which Tsolekile allegedly discusses other players who are in on the scam, was apparently sent to one of the players who were approached by Bodi, possibly as a warning for them to keep quiet.
