The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reportedly assured Cricket Australia (CA) that no Australian players are being investigated following revelations that a current international cricket captain was among those approached by corrupt players to participate in spot-fixing.


Former New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent has confessed to the ICC's anti-corruption unit, giving detailed evidence about matches in at least five countries that were targeted for fixing.

However, News.com.au reports that the anti-corruption unit assured CA that no Australian players have been named and nor have any such matches been played in Australia.

The report mentioned that although no credible evidence has ever been provided accusing any Australians of ever being involved of fixing in official matches, however, 20 years ago, Mark Waugh and Shane Warne were secretly fined by the then Australian Cricket Board for selling information to illegal Indian bookmakers.

Waugh, Warne and Tim May were subsequently approached by disgraced former Pakistan captain Salim Malik to fix matches on the 1994 tour of Pakistan but all rejected the advanced, the report added.
