2 players charged with match fixing
LONDON (AP) — The England and Wales Cricket Board has charged former New Zealand test player Lou Vincent and Pakistani pace bowler Naveed Arif with match fixing in two county matches.
The ECB said on Thursday that Vincent has been charged under its Anti-Corruption Code with a total of 14 offences related to the games played in August 2011, a Twenty20 match between Sussex and Lancashire and a 40 over game between Sussex and Kent.
Arif, who played for Pakistan A, is charged with six offences in relation to the 40-over game.
The board said both players have been provisionally suspended from all competition sanctioned by the ECB, the ICC and any other national cricket federation.
