Wellington: Former New Zealand cricket captain Martin Crowe has reconfirmed his co-operation with the International Cricket Council (ICC) in its inquiry into match-fixing allegations, his lawyer David Howman said on Thursday.''As previously stated, he has expressly agreed to co-operate at all times with the New Zealand Inquiry, headed by Sir Ian Barker, and consequently with any request to partake in the investigation undertaken by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU), headed by Sir Paul Condon,'' Howman said in a statement.Local media had earlier this week raised doubts about whether Crowe would talk to Condon when he visits in mid-February.''He is ready to be interviewed whenever asked and has always been so ready,'' Howman said.''Neither the New Zealand Inquiry nor the ACU has requested information from him nor invited him to attend for interview,'' Howman said.Crowe had been advised by the New Zealand inquiry that it was investigating the allegations that he took money for match information during the 1991 World Cup.Crowe, Australian test batsman Mark Waugh, and former Sri Lankan captains Arjuna Ranatunga and Aravinda De Silva were named in an Indian Central Bureau of Investigation report last November as having connections with bookmakers.Former West Indies captain Brian Lara, former England captain Alec Stewart, and ex-Australian batsmen Dean Jones were all named. All players have denied any involvement in match-fixing or any illegal activity. (c) Reuters Limited. Click here for Restrictions
