'Woolmer was honest'

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.

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
