Johannesburg: Hansie Cronje's lawyers say the United Cricket Board of South Africa (UCBSA) offer of rehabilitation for the banned former South Africa captain will not stop him challenging the ban in court.''I have read that Mr Cronje is banned for life,'' Cronje lawyer Leslie Sackstein told Reuters from his office in Bloemfontein on Friday. ''We believe the ban is unlawful and we are taking the UCBSA to court.''A clause in a media release issued by UCBSA president Percy Sonn on Thursday said, ''We acknowledge that, with effort, people are able to rehabilitate themselves over time and there may be an opportunity for the UCB to take cognisance of this possibility in the future.''Sackstein, asked his opinion of the clause, said, ''I have no opinion on it because I haven't the faintest idea what that means.''Cronje was banned by the UCBSA following his admission in June that he took $ 100,000 from bookmakers in return for agreeing to influence matches.
