Wellington: In order to curb the match fixing and spot fixing menace, the New Zealand police has warned players of 'honey traps' when they arrive for the ICC World Cup in February next year which will be jointly held in Australia and New Zealand.
The New Zealand Herald reported yesterday that the police force in the country is on high alert. "We know they (fixers and bookies) bring in women into the country to fraternise with players," Superintendent Sandra Manderson, who is the police chief for the event, was quoted as saying.
"Afterwards, they'll ask the players to do something and if they refuse they'll say, 'Well, see these photographs? They will be with your wife, your neighbours, your parents.' There are millions and millions of dollars at stake in match fixing."
