Former New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent confirmed on Thursday morning that he was co-operating with the ICC's spot-fixing investigation, but gave no further word as to the extent of his involvement.

It was revealed by the <i>New Zealand Herald</i> that the ICC had been in the country for months, looking into match fixing by a handful of former Black Caps players, but Vincent's name was the only one to emerge with a comment attached.

Vincent's statement read: "I wish to let everyone know that I am cooperating with an ongoing ICC Anti-Corruption investigation that has been made public today."

"This investigation is bound by a number of rules and regulations that mean I am unable to make any further public comment."

"I will personally talk to the public when I am able to. In the meantime I cannot comment. Please respect me and my family's privacy until such time."

Reports in the Daily Mail have claimed that the other two players being investigated are Daryl Tuffey and Chris Cairns. None of the three players involved have played for the national side since 2010.

Cairns made a brief statement before consulting with lawyers, saying: "We need to let the investigation by the ICC run its course."
