New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have released the following statement based on enquires received about an article published in The Sunday Times (UK) that contained allegations that New Zealand players offered to meet with bookmakers.
Chief Executive David White said: “We have complete confidence that the claims made are baseless and have no credibility.
“The sources are not credible and the accusations are unsubstantiated making them irresponsible, damaging and untrue.
“The integrity and reputation of the game is paramount and NZC have absolute confidence that our players share these ideals.
“We have been in contact with the ICC anti-corruption unit and this is now a matter for them to follow up on.”
As this is in the hands of the ICC, NZC will not comment further on this matter.
