JOHANNESBURG — International TV nets are rushing to interview sacked South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje.Cronje, 32, stands to pocket more from telling about his downfall than he made in his match-fixing attempts. He was axed in April after Indian police revealed he had been involved with bookmakers. He already has been paid a reported $120,000 by Oz’s “60 Minutes” newsmag for an exclusive interview, and is said to have taken a sizable check from local pay station M-Net for allowing them to film him over a period of three days. Cronje told the King Commission of Inquiry, which is probing South African cricket in the wake of the scandal, that he received only around $100,000 on the five occasions he took money from bookies between 1996-2000.
