Sussex CCC are aware of a book recently released by Ed Hawkins, entitled “Bookie Gambler Fixer Spy: A Journey to the Corrupt Heart of Cricket’s Underworld", in which Sussex’s Clydesdale Bank 40 match with Kent in August 2011 is mentioned, a match that was shown live on Sky.
The Club can confirm approaches were made to players regarding this game. Working with the PCA, the Club investigated and reported the issue at the time, passing all the information promptly to the ECB after the match. In conjunction with the ICC, a full investigation was undertaken with nothing untoward coming to light, and the Club's prompt action receiving praise.
There have been no further reports made to the Club concerning any Sussex matches.
As a Club, we are committed to ensuring that the game’s integrity is not breached at any time and we will continue to take a full and leading role in the ECB’s endeavours to protect the game.
