South African cricket authorities have charged a player with attempting to match fix during its recent Ram Slam Twenty20 competition.

Cricket South Africa did not name the player, only referring to him as the "intermediary".

“The intermediary has been charged with contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence, aspects of the 2015 Twenty20 Challenge Series and with failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to co-operate with an investigation carried out by CSA’s designated Anti-Corruption Official,” Cricket South Africa said in a statement.

“The provisional suspension means that the intermediary may not be involved in any capacity in any match or any other kind of function ... recognised or supported in any way by CSA, the ICC, a National Cricket Federation or any member of a National Cricket Federation.

“As is the standard practice with the ICC, neither CSA nor the ICC will make any further comment in respect of ongoing investigations.”
