Kevin Pietersen gave a MAK Pataudi lecture recently and remembered the former South African captain Hansie Cronje. He said that his life came to a standstill during a match-fixing scandal. Pietersen highlighted the relevance of some of the test cricketers in addition to the late Hansie Cronje and some of the names including Shane Warne, Sachin Tendulkar, Steve Waugh, Malcolm Marshall and Kapil Dev. Cronje was trapped in the 2000 match fixing scandal when he confessed about taking bribes to fix matches along with other players. After a few years later, he died in an air crash and people suspect that he might have been killed with a master plan by his rivals.
