Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif, who previously blew the whistle on match-fixing in the country's national team, has suggested a delay in the live broadcast of matches to curb spot-fixing.

"I guarantee that even a delay of 30 seconds in live telecast of matches will put an end to the spot-fixing," Latif told AFP on Friday.

Latif, 41, announced his retirement in protest over match-fixing reports during Pakistan's tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe in 1995.

He also testified against his teammates at a judicial inquiry between 1998 and 2000, which culminated in life bans on two players and fines on six more.

Isn't this the same guy who confessed to smuggling drugs in his WK gloves? Such a dumb*ss. The best approach is to make all betting legal and stiff penalties for offenders.
