HK Sixes chief rubbishes fixing claims


HONG KONG – Hong Kong’s cricket chief has denied there is any corruption at the city’s high-profile Sixes tournament after New Zealand players said they were approached and offered gifts, a report said Tuesday. Dinesh Tandon said the Hong Kong Cricket Association was investigating after players told the ICC a man who called himself a Middle Eastern diamond dealer made the offer during the tournament in November. “We have been made aware by the ICC that an incident happened and we are investigating it further,” Tandon told the South China Morning Post.
“But I can assure you that there has been no instance of match-fixing or spot-fixing. We have strictly adhered to ICC guidelines on corruption and I’m confident nothing happened.”
