Nairobi:The two International Cricket Council (ICC) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit officials expected in Kenya on Tuesday to interview senior players will base their investigations on a four-nation LG Cup held in Kenya in October 1999.

Kenya Cricket Association (KCA) general manager Sammy Obingo said Martin Hawkins and Alan Peacock, who were involved in investigations that led to an inquiry into former captain Maurice Odumbe earlier this year, will address the players activities during the tournament contested by India, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

South Africa, led by the late Hansie Cronje, beat India in the final.

Most of the players summoned to appear before the investigating team over a three-day period had threatened not to do so, claiming they had been given short notice and feared being implicated in wrongdoing arising from the interviews.

But Obingo said the players had been assured that no action will be taken against them.
