Daryl Tuffey to co-operate with ICC fixing inquiry
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Former test fast bowler Daryl Tuffey says he doesn’t believe he is the focus of an International Cricket Council probe into possible match-fixing by past New Zealand players and has pledged to fully co-operate with investigators.
In a statement issued through his lawyers, Tuffey said he “intends to fully co-operate with the ICC and provide them with any relevant information in his possession.”
Tuffey’s former New Zealand teammate, opening batsman Lou Vincent has already said he is co-operating with the ICC’s anti-corruption unit.
But former test all-rounder Chris Cairns says he has not been notified of an investigation by the ICC or New Zealand Cricket and is “sickened” his name has been linked to the inquiry. Cairns said he has asked his lawyers to investigate how his name was leaked to news media.
