LAHORE - Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has reiterated that spot-fixing threatens to damage the game further if not stopped by the International Cricket Council (ICC)’ s anti-corruption unit.
“I guarantee that even a delay of 30 seconds in live telecast of matches will put an end to the spot-fixing,” the Daily Times quoted Latif, as saying.
“The ICC has to convince its broadcasters to do that or else the game will be further hit badly,” he added.
The 42-year-old further suggested that the ICC should employ former players to tackle the menace.
“The ICC will have to employ former players to stop spot-fixing, and that will be the first step in the right direction,” Latif said.
“Education of the players is also very important. Spot-fixing is spreading fast, so we need to take strict steps as soon as possible,” he added. (ANI)
