A former South African cricketer has been charged with corruption involving match-fixing, according to ESPNcricinfo.

It is understood that the player, who has not been named, was the “intermediary” who Cricket South Africa mentioned in a press release in December after there were allegedly attempts to influence results in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, which is South Africa’s domestic Twenty20 tournament.

In the original release in December, Cricket South Africa revealed that the player had been charged under their anti-corruption code for “contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects” of the 2014/15 Ram Slam T20 Challenge.

The player in question has now also been charged with “failing, or refusing without compelling justification, to cooperate with an investigation carried out by an anti-corruption official.”
