Confidential information about 'fixing' must stay private: Lee's agent

Australian fast bowler Brett Lees agent Neil Maxwell has said he was dismayed when information provided by his client and fellow Australian players, which was supposed to be confidential, was released by the ICCs anti-corruption unit.


Sydney, Sep 5: Australian fast bowler Brett Lee's agent Neil Maxwell has said he was dismayed when information provided by his client and fellow Australian players, which was supposed to be confidential, was released by the ICC's anti-corruption unit.

However, he insists that the players, who notified the anti-corruption unit of approaches made by a man linked to Indian bookmakers, were not in immediate danger of coming under scrutiny.

"I don't think there is an immediate concern [for their safety], but I do believe if I was a player I'd be reluctant to report these things if my name is going to be thrust forward whenever an incident rears its head," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Maxwell, as saying.

"They have to have the protective process as well. There are so many flaws [in what has happened]," he added.

Maxwell also questioned why a journalist had to unearth the 'spot-fixing' scam, when the ICC had spent 23.8 million dollars trying to crack down on corruption.

"It took a journalist to risk his life to achieve this. Are we really wanting it exposed?" Maxwell said.
