We don’t lose for money

The Herald reports:

New Zealand says claims some New Zealand cricketers have been allegedly involved in match-fixing simply aren’t credible. …

Players for all the main cricketing nations took part, the bookmakers claimed, and New Zealanders were currently being offered to bookmakers to help fix matches.

One bookmaker claimed to have fixed matches with two New Zealand players – who he named – in 2010. The newspaper did not publish the names.

Last night New Zealand Cricket Players’ Association boss Heath Mills told the Herald the allegations were a slur on every player in New Zealand.

I don’t think our players throw games, because they get paid to do so. I think they just play like crap occasionally regardless of financial incentive!
