Alviro Petersen was charged with several breaches of Cricket South Africa's Anti-Corruption Code for Personnel, the board said in a statement on Saturday (November 12). The former player and captain of Highveld Lions has 14 days to respond to the charges.

The charges come on the back of the ongoing investigation for offenses relating to the 2015 Ram Slam T20 Challenge Series, which also saw the likes of Gulam Bodi, Jean Symes, Pumelela Matshikwe, Ethy Mbhalati and Thami Tsolekile being banned by the board. While Bodi was banned for 20 years after admitting to charges of attempting to fix matches, Thami Tsolekile copped a 12-year suspension. The others received lesser duration bans for accepting money from Bodi.

The board has subsequently, under Article 4.7 of the Code, provisionally suspended the former all-rounder from "playing, coaching or otherwise being involved in any capacity in any match under its jurisdiction or that of the ICC or any other ICC member," a release said.

The 35-year-old, who featured in 36 Tests, 21 One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals for South Africa, was charged with the following breaches as stated in the release:

-Contriving to fix or otherwise improperly influence, or being party to a scheme in which attempts would be made to fix or otherwise improperly influence, a match or matches in the 2015 RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Series;

-Seeking to accept, accepting or agreeing to accept a bribe or reward to fix or contrive to fix or influence improperly a match or matches in the 2015 RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Series;

-Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Code;

-Failure to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (without unnecessary delay) full details of any incident or fact that may evidence Corrupt Conduct under the Code by another participant;

-Nine counts of failing to disclose (without unnecessary delay) accurate and complete information and/or documentation to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official;

-Obstructing or delaying the investigation by concealing, tampering with or destroying information or documentation relevant to the investigation.

Petersen, who has spent the last two years with County side Lancashire, had said earlier in September that he would not return to the side in the 2017 season due to family reasons.
