Bodi was charged with several counts of contriving or attempting to fix matches on 31 December 2015 following an investigation conducted by CSA's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit. Under the provisions of the Anti-Corruption Code for Personnel, Bodi had until 18 January 2016 to respond to the charges.
CSA issued a decision outlining the process it adopted with respect to adjudication of sanctions upon Bodi which is available on its website, www.cricket.co.za.
"CSA thoroughly considered all the relevant factors and determined that a lengthy ban was appropriate", commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. "Our attitude to corruption will always be one of zero tolerance. There is no doubt that Mr Bodi's actions have threatened the integrity and image of the game that we love and he must be handed a strong punishment. We have had many discussions with Mr Bodi and he accepts the folly of his actions," added Mr Lorgat.
"We are fortunate in this instance that several players rejected his approaches and, as a direct result of our integrity processes, which include CSA and SACA player education programmes, the matter was brought to light and meticulously investigated," said Mr Lorgat. "There are no winners in this sort of ill-fated and unfortunate matter. However, all of us in the cricket community must learn from this experience and remain vigilant. We expect that that Mr Bodi himself will learn and will actively assist us in reminding players of the dangers of corrupt behaviour," said Mr Lorgat.
