The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has banned former New Zealand cricketer Lou Vincent from cricket for life after he admitted breaching the ECB’s anti-corruption regulations.

Vincent pleaded guilty to 18 breaches of the regulations in total. Four breaches related to a Twenty20 match between Lancashire and Durham in June 2008, while the remaining 14 charges related to two fixtures played at Hove in August 2011 – a Sussex v Lancashire Twenty20 match and a Sussex v Kent CB40 match.

He was charged with the offences back in May of this year, alongside Naveed Arif, who also played for Sussex until 2012.
