170 people, including bookies to Sri Lanka for the T20 World Cup



Officials from the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit of the International Cricket Council met with the Delhi Police Crime branch as part of an ongoing corruption investigation into how potential honey traps could be used to lure players into spot and match fixing during the World T20 scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka.

According to reports, 170 people, including bookies as well as 'honey traps', were to arrive in Sri Lanka for the T20 World Cup.

According to Indian Media the ACSU possesses a list of women who were to leave for Sri Lanka as 'honey traps' to lure bookies from major Indian cities.

These names were shared with the Delhi Police in a meeting on March 31 and it has also emerged that the tickets were booked by a single travel agent.

Meanwhile, the Delhi police is awaiting further information form the ACSU.

The ICC has in the recent past alerted players and national boards to fend off the threat posed to the sport by match-fixers.

The international body now has its eyes set on ensuring that the World T20 tournament, which begins from September 18th, is clean and played in the correct spirit.
