Former Proteas bowler Paul Harris says the match fixing scandal involving Gulam Bodi has affected cricket South Africa negatively.

Bodi, a former opening batsman and spinner who retired in 2014 has been charged by CSA with contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects of the Ram Slam Twenty20 competition last year.

Harris says if Bodi has done something wrong then a stricter punishment should be given to prevent others from doing the same thing.

Meanwhile Proteas batsman, Dean Elgar says the third test match currently underway at the Wanderers in Johannesburg against England is a must win.

Elgar says despite Quinton de Kock’s freak injury, as professional players the squad has continued as usual and taken the disruptions in their stride….

There is absolutely nothing you can do to attack a strong unit. It’s one of those things you got to adapt to as a professional player like I mention it was very unfortunate that it happened to Quinie, seems to happen to him a lot, but it’s just one of those challenges that we’ve based with and just have to deal with.” Elgar concludes.
