The 36-year-old Vincent spoke at the Chris Cairns' perjury trial where he admitted that while playing for Chandigarh Lions in the ICL, he took part in match-fixing on the senior cricketer's insistence.
Vincent took the names of New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Tuffey and former India batsman Mongia during the trial. He said that he had been suffering from mental health problems and depression at the time and 'felt good to be part of a gang'.
Mongia, however, denied the allegations levelled against him by Vincent. "What he (Vincent) said is incorrect. I was not involved in any match-fixing. I played for the Chandigarh Lions but I don't know what the New Zealanders (Cairns, Tuffey and Vincent) were doing," Mongia told reporters yesterday when contacted in Chandigarh.
The 38-year-old Mongia had played 57 ODIs and 1 T20 International for India in his six-year international career with most notable achievement being a member of the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup team. he was in fact suspended by ICL during their 2008 edition due to disciplinary reasons which were not disclosed.
