English cricketer Darren Stevens on Wednesday admitted to being charged by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with failure to report attempted corruption in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

The ICC announced on Tuesday that seven people had been charged with match-fixing in the BPL, with a further two accused of failing to report approaches to fix the 2013 edition of the Twenty20 competition.

"I confirm that I have been charged by the ICC with a failure to report a corrupt approach made to me during BPL2 in February this year," Stevens said in a statement released by his English county side Kent.

"I have not been involved in any corrupt activity and have not been charged with any and I am cooperating with the ICC and ACSU (Anti-Corruption and Security Unit) in their investigation and prosecution of the corruption charges in matters relating to the BPL."
