The Delhi police, which uncovered the match-fixing scandal when South Africa last toured India, and is still investigating it, has said that it would like to question Nicky Boje if it gets the chance. Boje and Herschelle Gibbs were the two current players who were involved in the controversy then, and Gibbs backed out of this tour over worries about whether he would be questioned.

According to the Press Trust of India, a news agency, a senior police official has said that despite the South African board's request for an assurance to the contrary, the Delhi police would still like to question Boje. This development increases the chances of Boje, who has been named vice-captain, backing out from this tour.
