New Zealand Cricket have confirmed that captain Brendon McCullum has testified before the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption and security unit – but is not under investigation for spot- or match-fixing.

The <i>Daily Mail</i> recently published parts of McCullum's statements to the ICC ACSU, which reportedly revealed an illegal approach by a former player during the first edition of the Indian Premier League in 2008.

"New Zealand Cricket is dismayed that Brendon's testimony to the International Cricket Council has been leaked to the media," read a statement from NZC.

"We can confirm that Brendon is not under investigation by the ICC and his testimony has actually been applauded by them. NZC has 100 percent confidence in our captain and his role in tackling corruption."

Erstwhile Black Caps batsman Lou Vincent, meanwhile, has revealed involvement in an ICC anti-corruption investigation in February last year.

Vincent said he had been approached by an illegal bookmaker during the 2013 Bangladesh Premier League – and has allegedly reported attempted fixing during England's domestic limited-overs competitions.
