Statement on behalf of Darren Stevens relating to ICC charges arising from the Bangladesh Premier League

Wednesday 14th August 2013

I confirm that I have been charged by the ICC with a failure to report a corrupt approach made to me during BPL2 in February this year. I have not been involved in any corrupt activity and have not been charged with any and I am cooperating with the ICC and ACSU in their investigation and prosecution of the corruption charges in matters relating to the BPL.

I am totally against any corruption in cricket and would never do anything other than perform to the best of my ability in any game. ICC have not suspended me from playing and I remain willing and able to play for Kent in all fixtures if selected. As the charge against me is now the subject of disciplinary proceedings I can make no further comment with regard to them at this stage.
