New Delhi, Dec 11 : Crime Branch of the Delhi Police today interrogated former South African cricketer Nicky Boje in connection with the 2000 match-fixing scandal.
Crime Branch of the Delhi Police today interrogated former South African cricketer Nicky Boje in connection with the 2000 match-fixing scandal.

Boje was questioned at the Delhi Police Officers' mess in Daryaganj, said Satender Garg, Additional Commissioner of the Delhi Police's Crime Branch.

"He is here (in India) for the first time after 2000 and we have questioned him over the match-fixing scandal," said Garg.

Further investigations will continue, he added.

Boje and team-mate Herschelle Gibbs were named in a Delhi police investigation into cricket corruption during South Africa's tour seven years ago, which led to a life ban for the then South African captain Hansie Cronje.

Boje, 34, who quit the international stage in December 2006, is now playing in the Indian Cricket League Twenty20 tournament.

Batsman Gibbs, who accepted an offer of money from Cronje to under-perform, was banned for six months by the South African cricket board after an inquiry.

Boje was let off because there was no evidence linking him to the match-fixing.

The Delhi Police had questioned Gibbs last year when he travelled to India for the first time since the scam. (ANI)
