Two former Sussex county cricketers have been charged with match fixing by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Lou Vincent is charged with 14 offences relating to two county matches in August 2011 - a Twenty20 match and a 40 over game - while Naveed Arif is charged with six offences relating to a 40-over game in the same month.

Both were charged under the ECB's Anti-Corruption Code and have been suspended from all activities related to the sport.
