London: England wicket-keeper Alec Stewart on Thursday assured International Cricket Council anti-corruption chief Sir Paul Condon of his full co-operation in match-fixing investigations. The former England captain, who found himself drawn into his sport's match-fixing saga when he was named in an Indian Central Bureau of Investigation report late last year, attended a preliminary meeting with Sir Paul and other members of the anti-corruption unit on Thursday. A subsequent statement from the ICC read, "Mr Stewart confirmed that he is fully prepared to cooperate with the ACU's ongoing investigations. If necessary a further meeting, involving more detailed discussions, will take place at some point in the future. "Mr Stewart met with Sir Paul Condon, head of the anti-corruption unit and senior members of his investigative team. Neither the anti-corruption unit nor Mr. Stewart will be making any further media or public comment on this matter."
