Herschelle Gibbs and Nicky Boje, two players named alongside Hansie Cronje in match-fixing charges by Indian police, were offered new two-year contracts by South Africa yesterday.

The pair, who have denied any knowledge of match-fixing, were also included in a squad to tour Sri Lanka in July and August.

Cronje, who admitted receiving money from a bookmaker, was sacked as captain last week, and the United Cricket Board of South Africa managing director, Ali Bacher, said new clauses regarding match-fixing would be included in the contracts.

CONTRACTED SOUTH AFRICAN PLAYERS: Two years: A category: P Adams, M Boucher, D Cullinan, H Gibbs, J Kallis, G Kirsten, L Klusener, S Pollock, J Rhodes. B category: N Boje, M Hayward, M Ntini. One year: N McKenzie, A Hall, R Telemachus, D Terbrugge, B Dippenaar.
