Wellington: The head of the New Zealand Cricket Players' Association says the life ban imposed on former test batsman Lou Vincent for match-fixing might deter other players from admitting similar activities. (Vincent Banned by ECB)
The England and Wales Cricket Board last week slapped Vincent with 11 life bans, to be served concurrently, after he admitted taking money to manipulate limited-overs matches in the English county competition. (Vincent Admits Guilt)
The ban means the 35-year-old Vincent, who played 23 tests and more than 100 one-day internationals for New Zealand, can't have any future involvement in cricket or even enter a stadium while a match is in progress.
