    Is this even legal? Can well understand the ACA not liking this one bit.

    Great idea imo. Catch the bastards who don't report incidents. They are as bad as the actual fixers. If they report every damn incident, a few people would be caught and careers of more players could be saved.

    Wouldn't mind becoming an 'undercover' agent in women's cricket.

    Good idea in principal, but they definitely need to sort out their confidentiality when players report stuff. Also I imagine this may be illegal, I'm not sure?

    It would depend on how it's done and where. Also, the ACA is correct - ICC needs to sort out its confidentiality issues first.

    Meh, if the players can be forced into accepting the WADA clauses for the good of the came, they should be forced to accept these too.

    Don't actually have to do anything just need the fear of the fact it could be icc or a journo to stop the rot. Also harsh penalties for those caught of course.

    I'm not legal expert but seeing as though the ICC isn't the police or law and work to their own code of conduct I'd guess they'd be allowed to do it.

    Whether the players are willing to accept this is another thing entirely. Should be used in my opinion would definitely cut down the instances of cheating and would force players to tell authorities of the shady people around the game.

    How in the future will the match-fixers be able to convince the players that they're not ICC spies? By threatening them rather than simply bribing them. So I'd expect an increase in the level of threats rather than simple bribery.

    That said, my initial reaction is that I'm in favour. Using entrapment, the News of the World managed pretty easily to do what the Anti-Corruption Unit had spectacularly failed ever to do. I'm not 100% sure of the legal position (which may well vary a bit from country to country in any case) but in principle it seems sensible to me.

    If players don't like the invasion of their privacy, tough. Cricket fans, who ultimately are the ones that count, like even less the fact that the integrity of the game has been undermined; drastic action is needed to repair that. It's not unlike drugs testing of athletes, which obviously entails invasion of privacy and restriction of freedom, but on balance is well worth it.

    Don't really care about the player's privacy but if players offering up anything other than unsolicited info then being reported by a 'spy' end up not getting thrown out of court, I'd be surprised.

    These sorts of things always sound good until they're put before a judge. Helps in fishing for names but in terms of actual penalties, big question marks.
