It suits the police to have a closed case. The irony of Cronje's death was that it occurred as he was beginning to rebuild his life. The shell of a man who had sat before the King Commission of Inquiry a year earlier, shorn of the muscle which marked him as an athlete, his intense, brooding eyes sunk deep into his skull, had begun to regain something of his former arrogant confidence.
He had been warmly applauded at an orchestrated series of public engagements and the publicity generated by these events - together with a tour of England organised by Max Clifford - had been cleverly managed by promoter Derek Macaskill.
Cronje confessed before the commission to what he called 'an unfortunate love of money', and the full extent of this love may never be known, although recent revelations of the 72 bank accounts in the Cayman Islands held in his name would suggest, at the very least, that only a small part of the story has been told.
As well as the cash, there was also a leather jacket, a present from the colourful bookie Marlon Aronstam. Both admitted to conspiring with Cronje to underperform in one-day internationals in India in March , even if, in the event, neither had followed through on the deals.
It is unfortunate that, at a time when the previously disadvantaged communities of South Africa were in desperate need of successful role models, the two so-called coloured players in the squad, were the ones to admit conspiracy.
Mark Boucher, Jacques Kallis and Lance Klusener all revealed how Cronje had approached them in their team hotel and 'joked' about receiving their help in throwing the second Test in Bangalore on the same tour.
The testimony to the King Commission alerted the world of cricket to the corruption at its heart. The whole thing stank but, apparently, not as putridly in South Africa as elsewhere.
The government hastily closed the commission just as it was getting close to the bigger picture. It would have reflected badly on the whole country, and that wasn't acceptable.
Cronje now sought to 'legitimise' his monetary interests, taking a masters degree in business leadership and finding himself a job, as a financial manager at Bell Equipment.
His days as an international sportsman may have been over, but his competitive instincts remained, except now they were transferred to golf.
The resident professional at Fancourt, Chris Davison, remembers that, no matter had bad things were in his life, Cronje remained as intense and focused on the golf course as he had been on the cricket field.
Davison confirmed Cronje's parsimoniousness when, in a revealing aside, he conceded that his teammates had never expected him to buy them a drink.
All of a sudden, Hansie was captain again - he completely dominated Jonty. We took money off them, though, and Hansie paid up his R I suppose he could afford it!
At least three social golfers who played with Cronje said he had failed to honour a friendly bet and had only ever stayed for one drink, provided that it was paid for by his opponents - win or lose.
What he had or hadn't done didn't bother me,' Davison said. But I knew Hansie as a really good guy. Fancourt was a good cocoon for him.
It's a private club and he would come over and just have a chat while chipping and putting. He and Bertha spent the Sunday afternoon before he died with my wife and, when I was having personal troubles with the management of the resort, he said: "The truth will be the winner".
He always believed that. Prosecutors at the King inquiry were not so convinced. One, Shamila Batohi, said Cronje had been 'evasive and economical with the truth' while Judge King refused to offer a verdict on the veracity of Cronje's testimony despite the player's immunity from prosecution depending on it.
But Bell Equipment refused to accept that employing a man with such a dubious record to work with their finances was an abdication of moral responsibility, especially for a publicly listed company.
The chairman, Howard Buttery, said there was 'absolutely no chance whatsoever' of Cronje's appointment damaging the company's reputation. He would have got the job if his name wasn't Hansie Cronje.
A picture of Cronje now hangs in the Bell boardroom, and underneath runs the inscription 'Our Hero'. You could see the sparkle in his eye and the whiteness of the teeth in his smile.
I got up to 10 calls a day from the public congratulating our company for giving a man such as Hansie a second chance in life.
Cronje's charm and instinctive deviousness worked at the bottom end of the Bell hierarchy as well as at the top. We're still very emotional about it.
He was a gentleman like we have never met before. He was so special to us. The unanswered questions about Cronje's death are, for now, not preoccupying the Cronje family: they are simply trying to recover from the trauma of recent years.
We were all at Fancourt on the weekend of 1 June [the anniversary of Cronje's death], and it was good to see the family together again.
It was very emotional, especially for my parents. But it felt good. Hansie is in our thoughts all the time. I can't believe the amount of peace God has given me about his death.
It was his time to go, but it was great that he managed to accomplish some of the things he wanted to do, and correct some of his mistakes. Frans Cronje is a committed Christian.
He is a lay preacher and produces educational videos and DVDs with biblical themes. Hansie was also a self-proclaimed Christian, though many doubted the sincerity of his belief - as well as match fixing, there were allegations of serial adultery.
If William Shakespeare had written a tragic story on cricket, Hansie Crone would have fitted the bill perfectly. The cricketing world was stunned into aghast and dismay when one of its favor Full profile.
Chinnaswamy Stadium, Mar 02, The cricketing world was stunned into aghast and dismay when one of its favorite sons and a hero to one of the future generations accepted that he was a part of the match fixing mafia that threatened to uproot the game from its existence.
Hansie was not just the captain of the South African side, he was a natural leader, a man who could inspire his nation to greater honors, a great career was left unfulfilled, the game became a laughing stock and the entire cricketing community was shamed.
Cronje was not just a player; he was an ambassador to the sport. Debuting in the WC, Cronje was the sort of all-rounder, a captain would ideally like.
His first appearance in the WC yielded moderate results, but the talent was never in doubt. The Indians were to witness his all round skills when they toured South Africa.
Allan Donald then created havoc to help South Africa register their first Test victory since re-admission. Cronje then scored a fine to help South Africa trounce Sri Lanka by an innings and runs in September ; this was South Africa's first Test win abroad post apartheid.
A quality upbringing aided with strong mental fitness was to help Cronje take up responsibilities at an early age. He was made the skipper of Orange Free State at a very early age and steered them to handsome results in the domestic competitions.
International commitments meant that Hansie was not present all along but his inspired captaincy was never in question.
Cronje was appointed as the vice-captain to Keplar Wessels for the tour of Australia in He was 24 then, the youngest in the squad.
Injury to Wessels on the final morning at Sydney meant that Cronje took charge and piloted his troops to a stunning win defending a paltry Adelaide was the venue where Cronje captained full time and he was brought back to earth as Australia triumphed by a hefty margin.
Cronje struggled against the seam and swing movement in England during the summer of but the seeds of captaincy had already been sown and Cronje was appointed as the full time skipper in Bertha is the daughter of parents — Father Kosie Pretorius who is a retired math teacher and mother Elize Pretorius who reside in Bloemfontein.

Jock Cameron. Marchant de Lange. Test caps. One-Day International caps. Twenty20 International caps. Wisden Obituary Cronje, Wessel Johannes, South Africa's cricket captain in a record 53 Tests and one-day internationals between and , died on June 1, when the cargo plane in which he was travelling crashed on Cradock Peak in the Outeniqua mountain range on its approach to his home town, George, in the Western Cape.
He was just Two years earlier, Hansie Cronje's admission that he took bribes from bookmakers to provide information and fix matches exposed the extent of a corruption scandal that cricket authorities had signally neglected to confront.
At first he had hotly denied charges levelled by the New Delhi police, who during a phone-tapping operation in March heard him conspiring with an Indian bookmaker, Sanjeev Chawla, to predetermine performances.
And such was his standing as a player, captain and sporting ambassador for post-apartheid South Africa that few in the cricket world doubted him, preferring to heap scorn on the Indian investigation.
Then, four days after the accusation, Cronje confessed in a 3 a. He was immediately stripped of the captaincy, as his side prepared for a oneday series against Australia, and in subsequent testimony to the government-appointed King Commission revealed, sometimes in tears, further details of his involvement with bookmakers in match-fixing.
The cricket world listened agog as much as aghast. The game's reputation, it seemed, was at an all-time low.
Cronje's life and career were in tatters. It had been so different a decade earlier when, aged 21, he was given the captaincy of Orange Free State.
His upbringing and education had groomed him for leadership. His family were of solid, middle-class Afrikaner stock, deeply religious and sporty: Hansie's father, Ewie, had been an off-spinning all-rounder for Free State in the s.
The importance of discipline, dedication and hard work had been inculcated in Hansie at an early age, honed at Grey College in his native Bloemfontein, and was made manifest in , his second year in charge, when the young Free State team, coached by Eddie Barlow to a level of physical and mental fitness rare even for South African cricket, finished runners-up in the Castle Bowl formerly the Currie Cup and won the limited-overs Nissan Shield.
The next two seasons brought Castle Cup and one-day doubles, followed by one-day trophies in subsequent years - a total of seven titles in five seasons.
International commitments meant the young captain was not everpresent, but his influence remained inspirational.
He had made his debut at 18 in January , joining his brother, Frans, for the Currie Cup games against Transvaal and Northern Transvaal.
Innings of two and 16, then a pair, were an inauspicious start for someone who would notch up a record 15 first-class hundreds for the Free State, as well as six in one-day competitions.
Hansie's maiden first-class hundred followed in January when, captaining South African Universities, he hit against Mike Gatting's English rebels.
Inside the year, South Africa had been readmitted to full membership of the ICC, and the year-old Cronje was one of four non-playing observers - two white, two non-white - taken to India with the first post-isolation side.
Three months later, he was bowling five tidy overs for 17 as South Africa, captained by Kepler Wessels, shocked Australia with a nine-wicket victory at Sydney in the World Cup.
He played in eight of their nine games in that tournament, including the infamous semi-final against England in which South Africa's target was adjusted after rain from 22 off 13 balls to 21 off one.
Then he went to the Caribbean for South Africa's first Test since readmission, and their first ever against West Indies. Cronje scored only five and two, but in 68 Tests would go on to make 3, runs at His first-class figures from games were 12, runs at
