In a shocking twist to the infamous match-fixing scandal of 2000, former South Africa pacer Henry Williams said he had not received any cash offering from his captain, the now deceased Hansie Cronje, to underperform in a one-day international against India.

Williams, along with Herschelle Gibbs, was banned for six months each from cricket, while Cronje received a life ban and died two years later in a plane crash.

"When we testified to our lawyers what the story really was, they came up with a threat that we could be prosecuted for doing something like this," Williams told the Sunday Times, explaining that he and Gibbs were pressured into cooking up a story in order to build a stronger case against Cronje.

I think this is all a bunch of cr@p and publicity stunt aiming at fixing whatever image he has left.

But apparently , Gibbs quit Twitter 3 days back. Is there really something? :umm:
