Former South Africa coach Graham Ford, who worked as an assistant under Bob Woolmer, said the murdered Pakistan coach had never spoken seriously about match-fixing during his time with the Proteas.
"Bob was such an honest guy that he believed others were too, and that match-fixing wasn't really going on," Ford said.
"I really don't think he ever suspected any match-fixing was going on in the South African camp. If there was ever any mention of match-fixing from Bob, it was only jokingly," he said.
Clive Rice, South Africa's first post-isolation captain, was widely quoted at the weekend as saying Woolmer confided in him about match-fixing and that he "named names". He said the discussion occurred in 2000. - Reuters
