McCullum gets plenty of support on fixing stance

5:24 pm on 22 May 2014

The New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum says he's had plenty of support from fellow players over helping a match-fixing investigation.

McCullum has spoken publicly for the first time since his evidence to the International Cricket Council's anti corruption unit was leaked to the British media.

The Black Caps captain says the situation is stressful but he stands by everything he told the ICC investigators.

McCullum says he has no regrets about informing them of the approach by a player in 2008, a player he's previously described as one of his heroes in the game.

Brendan McCullum says he's never fixed a cricket match and has urged other players to come forward if approached.

Meanwhile, the ICC has served an injunction against the British newspaper the Daily Mail to try to prevent further leaks into its anti-corruption investigation becoming public.
