Former cricketer of England Kevin Pietersen and Alviro Petersen have indulged in a heated spat over Gulam Bodi's five-year imprisonment sentence on October 18. Petersen wrote that it is a good day for cricket since Bodi has been sentenced to prison for 5 years. The 39-year-old former English batsman attacked him saying that he should not be tweeting this as he was also banned for two years for the crime. Alviro Petersen reacted to it saying there is nothing wrong with what he tweeted.


Steyn also condemns Petersen's tweet

South Africa's star bowler Dale Steyn also commented on Petersen's post calling it a sad day for cricket. Steyn said that the person who should be the last person to comment on the issue should rather have moral grounds than commenting on somebody who was their teammate and friend. He replied to Steyl saying that he wants to clarify that he wrote 'good day for cricket' in relation to the sentence handed down. Bodhi had been charged for match-fixing by the Cricket South Africa under an anti-corruption code in the year 2016. He had been announced the prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to eight charges of corruption. Gulam Bodi played for the South African cricket team after making his debut in the year 2007.


Smith, Warner were banned for a year

The most expensive players of the new English cricket league, Steve Smith and David Warner were involved in a ball-tampering scandal in the year 2018 which is popularly known as the Sandpapergate scandal. The incident occurred during the third test match between Australia and South Africa in Cape Town where Australian cricketer Cameron Bandcroft was caught on cameras attempting to roughen up a side of the cricket ball using sandpaper. The Australian Captain at that time, Steve Smith and the Vice-Caption David Warner were found guilty by Cricket Australia, which is a governing body for cricket in the country. Both the cricketers were handed a ban of one year in International cricket. The former Australian skipper in a press conference at that time broke down while apologising for the ball-tampering scandal. Smith and Warner returned to cricket on March 29 this year in a match against Pakistan in UAE.
