Ex-Proteas wicketkeeper Thami Tsolekile was found not guilty of assaulting a minor on Wednesday.
According to Netwerk24, the 36-year-old, who was banned for 12 years from cricket for his involvement in domestic cricket’s match-fixing scandal, found himself in the headlines again for an alleged assault of a minor.
A warrant for his arrest was issued late last year, after he failed to appear in court.

Tsolekile appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday and was found not guilty.
He had been accused of grabbing a 14-year-old boy by his throat, after the minor apparently threw rocks at his car and swore at him while he was driving in the Pinelands area.
Tsolekile was found not guilty, due to the boy’s contradictory testimony during cross-examination.
In August 2016, he received his ban from cricket for attempting to fix matches during the 2015-16 domestic T20 competition.
