Delhi Police files chargesheet in 2000 match-fixing scandal
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Delhi Police on Monday filed chargesheet in the 13-year-old cricket match-fixing scandal unearthed in 2000 naming deceased South African skipper Hansie Cronje and brother of T-series owner Krishan Kumar.
It was in April 2000 that the Crime Branch stumbled upon the match fixing scandal when they intercepted the calls of a London-based bookie.
Two other South African cricketers Herschelle Gibbs and Nicky Boje were not named due to lack of enough evidence against their involvement.
Delhi Police had alleged that Cronje had met the bookie on March 14, 2000 during which the one-day international cricket matches between India and South Africa played in India during March was fixed in exchange for money.
Cronje had admitted to his guilt before an enquiry commission set up by South African cricket board after which he was banned for life.
Delhi Police has been struggling to file a chargesheet 13 years after having exposed the murky world of match-fixing in 2000.
