(Cricket) New Zealander Vincent admits approach by bookie
(02-27 10:19)

Former New Zealand test cricketer Lou Vincent has pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to report an approach from an illegal bookmaker while playing in the Bangladesh Premier League.
The opening batsman was one of nine players investigated by anti-corruption officials in Bangladesh and was one of three to admit guilt. A decision on the penalty he will receive is expected within two weeks.
Vincent said in a statement today: “I can confirm that I admitted a breach in January 2014 of the ICC code in failing to report an approach from a bookmaker whilst playing in the Bangladesh T20 league in January 2013. I confirm I rejected the approach at the time. There is no allegation or suggestion anything untoward occurred beyond the approach itself.'' --AP
