The King commission is charged with investigating three specific matters:-

  1. The disclosures made by Mr Hansie Cronje, relating to a payment of some several thousand American dollars which he admittedly received, I think I can say, earlier this year during the course of the triangular cricket tournament between South Africa, England and Zimbabwe.

  2. Whether during the period 1 November 1999 to the 17th of April 2000, any other member of the South African cricket team or team official, received or was promised payment of any amount of money or any other benefit in relation to his functions as a member of the South African cricket team or as a team official.

  3. Whether a proposal was made to the South African cricket team during its tour to India in 1996, that it forfeit or otherwise influence the result of a cricket match and thereupon, or thereafter, certain more detailed questions.

Provided below are copies of the official transcripts of the commission. CricInfo provides further coverage of the commission on its news pages.
