Kent player reveals ICC charge in corruption case

CANTERBURY, England (AP) -- English cricketer Darren Stevens says he is one of those charged by the International Cricket Council for failing to report a corrupt approach made to them during this year's Bangladesh Premier League.

In a statement released on his behalf by his English county Kent, Stevens stressed Wednesday that he has "not been involved in any corrupt activity." He said he is cooperating with the ICC and Anti-Corruption and Security Unit in their investigation and prosecution of the corruption charges.

The ICC said Tuesday that nine individuals have been charged with corruption -- seven with fixing-related offenses and two with failing to comply with their obligation to report corrupt approaches that were made to them.

The charges relate to an alleged conspiracy within the Dhaka Gladiators franchise.
