NZ Cricket Association Players not opposed to sting operations

11:24 am on 12 May 2011

The New Zealand cricket players association says it's not opposed to the introduction of sting operations, to stamp out corruption in the sport but says there'd need to be strict controls around them,

Haroon Lorgat, the chief executive of sport's international governing body the ICC, has suggested sting operations could be used as the sport continues its fight against match fixing.

The head of the New Zealand players association Heath Mills says he wasn't aware the ICC was considering such action.

Mills says before they go down that round, he'd like to know what processes will be used and to make sure they are lawful.
