New Delhi, May 7: International Cricket Council officials from the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit met Delhi Police Crime branch sleuths 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 in Sri Lanka.




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

India TV has learnt that 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. It has also emerged that the tickets were booked by a single travel agent.

The ICC has in the recent past alerted players and national boards to take steps in curtailing 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 18, is clean and played in the correct spirit.

Amid these reports the Sri Lankan Cricket Board also said that it would take maximum precautions to ensure that unwanted elements were not involved in the game.
