Cricket world rocked by Vincent’s fixing claims
WELLINGTON: Former New Zealand cricketer Lou Vincent has rocked the cricketing world with wide-spread fixing allegations in connection to different leagues and international matches, ARY News reported Thursday.
According to British media, Vincent has provided the proofs to ICC’s Anti Corruption Unit to corroborate his claims.
The report claims that Vincent had also named a Pakistani cricketer in the fixing allegations. ICC has started probing the claims, which might take a year or so to establish the truth.
Fixing is also rife in county matches, claims Vincent in his report.
According to reports, ICC’s anti-corruption police are close to charging a former Pakistan international cricketer based on evidence provided by Vincent. The investigation crosses several international jurisdictions and is expected to take another 12-18 months to complete with anti-corruption officers determined to use the information and land convictions.
Vincent, who played for the Aces in New Zealand´s domestic competition, was revealed last December to have been under investigation along with fellow New Zealanders Chris Cairns and Daryl Tuffey over allegations of match-fixing.
He later confirmed he had been approached by bookmakers.
