The head of the New Zealand Cricket Players' Association, Heath Mills, says his organisation will support any members caught up in the ICC match-fixing investigation.

Mills was speaking after it was revealed three former Black Caps have been the subject of a probe from the ICC's anti-corruption unit over the last four months.

"We do know who the players are," Mills said.

"But all I can say is the investigations are historical in nature and that no current players are involved.

 "We are unable to make any further comment about these matters because it’s likely they will be the subject of a judicial process.

 "We are very restricted in what we can say," he said.

"We have two membership categories – one for current members and one for past players.

 "Not all past players are members of the association but if any one of our members came to us asking for support, we would assist them in getting that support."

Mills told the New Zealand Herald that the onus is now on the players involved in the investigation to come forward.

"We're not happy that other past players are coming under suspicion. We are working with New Zealand cricket to see what we can do about that," he said.

"This is a sad day for all of us but people need to remember that 99.99 per cent of those playing and working in cricket are hard-working, dedicated and honest folk."
