|Johannesburg, May 17(ANI): Cricket South Africa (CSA) has sought legal advice over a suspended Indian domestic player's claims that fixing took place when the Indian Premier League (IPL) was held in South Africa in 2009.
The CSA is pondering over whether or not to investigate the player's claims.
Five domestic IPL players were on Tuesday suspended from cricket after a sting operation by an Indian TV channel, India TV highlighted alleged fixing and corruption.
T.P Sudhindra, Mohnish Mishra, Abhinav Bali, Amit Yadav and Shalabh Srivastava are all first-class cricketers signed to various teams in the IPL.
Bali made claims about match fixing taking place in 2009, when the IPL was hosted by South Africa.
Jacques Faul, acting CEO of CSA, believes the claims about match fixing in South Africa in 2009 fall under the jurisdiction of the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption unit.
"We do, however, need to acquire legal advice to make sure that no responsibilities rest on us regarding South Africa's anti-corruption laws. We could be requested to launch our own investigation," Sports24 quoted Faul, as saying.
Faul said CSA is yet to receive any queries from the International Cricket Council or the Board of Cricket Control in India. (ANI)
