New Zealand Cricket supports the ban imposed on Lou Vincent by the England and Wales Cricket Board, in relation to 18 breaches of the ECB's anti-corruption code.
Mr Vincent pleaded guilty to all 18 charges and, in accordance with the ECB Anti-Corruption Code, has accepted an agreed sanction of a life ban from all forms of cricket.
NZC chief executive David White said his organisation was a strong advocate of the anti-corruption drive in cricket; was appalled by Vincent’s actions, and supported the penalty handed down.
“Unfortunately, and as has been well-documented over recent months, Mr Vincent is also involved in a different capacity with a British police investigation.”
“As such NZC is unable to comment on matters which might yet need to be tested in a court of law.”
