Corruption in cricket

Full coverage of the ACSU's Lou Vincent investigation

ESPNcricinfo staff

In December last year, former New Zealand cricketer Lou Vincent admitted his participation in an investigation by the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit probing incidents of alleged match-fixing in cricket. Since then, reports have emerged of Vincent's statements to the ICC's investigators that suggest 'widespread fixing' in cricket and corruption in various domestic leagues. The probe comes when the ICC is reviewing the role of the ACSU as an independent watchdog of the game, with proposals at recent ICC meetings suggesting the anti-corruption unit could be brought under the control of India, Australia and England
