According to an ESPNCricinfo report, Vincent will be charged with fixing offences under the anti-corruption code of the Champions League Twenty20, jointly managed by India, South Africa and Australia. Earlier, ECB charged him with as many as 14 offences pertaining to games under ECB's jurisdiction.

The charges, which have come about as a result of joint investigation by ICC's Anti-Corruption Security Unit (ACSU) and the officials of India, Ausralia and South Africa are expected to be formally announced after the end of the ongoing Indian Premier League on June 1.

Earlier, Lou Vincent's ex-wife alleged that former Kiwi all-rounder Chris Cairns was a ringleader in fixing cricket matches. Cairns, however, has denied all allegations and has absolved himself from any role in fixing matches.

Reports had also surfaced that current New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum was approached to fix matches in 2008, but New Zealand Cricket clarified that he was not under investigation for corruption.
