Default Williams provides twist to Cronje scandal

Williams provides twist to Cronje scandal
Tainted South African pacer said he was forced to lie about bribe offer from his captain.

Yahoo! Cricket

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?
