Vincent one of three Kiwis face ICC probe
4:00am Friday 6th December 2013 in Sport
A FORMER Lancashire League professional has admitted he is one of three former New Zealand cricketers who are being investigated over allegations of fixing in “historic matches”.
New Zealand Cricket confirmed the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption unit has been investigating the ex-players in recent months.
Former Test batsman Lou Vincent said he was one of the trio investigated.
“I am co-operating with an ongoing ICC anti-corruption investigation,” said Vincent, 37, who played the last of his 23 Test matches in 2007 and has played as a sub-pro for Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall.
A statement from NZC said: “New Zealand Cricket is aware the International Cricket Council is investigating a small number of former New Zealand cricketers.”
New Zealand Cricket later confirmed that three New Zealanders were under investigation, saying it knew their names but could not identify the players while the judicial process was taking place.
