Former NZC boss Vaughan disappointed over Black Caps' ICC match fixing allegations


Melbourne, Dec. 06 (ANI): Former New Zealand Cricket (NZC) boss Justin Vaughan has said he is disappointed, rather than surprised, that Black Caps are linked to match fixing allegations.

Vaughan, who was NZC captain at the time of the Indian Twenty20 revolution, said that it's a global sport, and though not imaginable, New Zealanders are just as likely as any other nationality to be involved in such crimes, reports.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed their anti-corruption unit was investigating former New Zealand players Chris Cairns, Lou Vincent and Daryl Tuffey in a match fixing probe involving historic matches played in India and several other countries.

Cairns, Vincent and Tuffey played together for the Chandigarh Lions in India in 2008 in the now-defunct Indian Cricket league (ICL) that was set up to counter the Indian Premier League as the T20 game exploded in popularity.

NZC, meanwhile, stressed that the investigation didn't involve matches in New Zealand or games played under its jurisdiction. (ANI)
