Auckland: New Zealand Cricket said on Thursday it may set up its own investigation into corruption allegations made in the Central Bureau of Investigation report. The BCCI has been asked for a copy of the report, chief executive Christopher Doig said in a statement. "If it contains matters requiring further investigation, we will put in place mechanisms to deal with it," Doig said in a statement. The Indian report named nine former international captains, including New Zealand's Martin Crowe, among prominent cricketers accused of links of one sort or another with bookmakers. International Cricket Council investigators are to visit India later this week to follow up the Indian claims of corruption. Crowe has admitted taking money for information, which he gave to a bookmaker he thought was a journalist paying him for a series of articles. Crowe told New Zealand media he expected to be cleared of any wrongdoing in connection with match-fixing allegations. New Zealand Cricket moved several months ago to establish a commission to provide independent examination of any allegations about the involvement of New Zealand players' past or present in match-fixing or related activities, Doig said. "It has been agreed that the New Zealand Cricket Board will need to determine the terms of reference and scope of any inquiry that is deemed necessary, should the circumstances highlighted in the Indian report warrant that," he said.
