The Sunday Times reported recently that several Lions gamers’, including former Proteas players Petersen and Lonwabo Tsotsobe, were under examination with one of them possibly serving a life-time restriction.
In the short article, the headline reads: Explosive report proposes restrictions for jagged cricketers with a sole picture of the Lancashire batsman on it.
In the declaration as reported by SA Cricket Magazine, Petersen’s lawyer Robin Twaddle stated that with no pictures of any of the other players allegedly examined, “clearly, the objective was to create the impression that Alviro Petersen is the player facing the life time ban.”
Petersen has actually been rather vocal on Twitter about not being under investigation once the news broke previously this year that his Lions team-mate Gulam Bodi was condemned of match-fixing throughout the 2015/16 domestic T20 tournament.
“Alviro Petersen was not associated with the T20 corruption scandal and has actually not been investigated for any involvement. He is definitely not in threat of being banned following CSA’s investigation into the scandal,” continued Twaddle.
“Alviro reported the corruption to CSA when he ended up being aware of it and has fully worked together with CSA during its examination. Alviro Petersen is positive that the examination report will completely exonerate him.”
Bodi was knocked with a 20-year ban, as the Lions cannot reach the semi-finals of the T20 competition, completing 4th.
