"He faced a further charge for his conduct during the 2011 CLT20, where he failed to report an approach from a bookmaker."
Mumbai, July 1 - Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) Tuesday announced a life ban on former New Zealand and Auckland Aces batsman Lou Vincent from participation in the tournament after he pleaded guilty to seven charges relating to spot fixing.

It was found that Vincent attempted to corrupt two matches involving the Auckland Aces during the October 2012 CLT20 played in South Africa by entering into agreements with a bookmaker for financial gain, Champions League Twenty20, which is jointly owned by the Indian, Australian and the South African cricket boards, said in a statement.

Six charges relate to Vincent's conduct in the Oct 10, 2012 match between the Aces and Hampshire at Centurion and Oct 15, 2012 match between the Aces and Kolkata Knight Riders at Cape Town.

He faced a further charge for his conduct during the 2011 CLT20, where he failed to report an approach from a bookmaker.

The serious nature of Vincent's actions justified imposing the longest possible suspension under the CLT20 Code of Behaviour, the statement said.
