Nixon was offered 'millions' to fix match

Former Leicestershire wicketkeeper Paul Nixon tells BBC Sport's Andy Swiss that he was offered millions to fix a match whilst playing for Leicestershire in 2010, but says that he turned down the approach and reported it to the cricket authorities.

Nixon, who played 19 one-day internationals for England in 2007 and featured in that year's World Cup, adds that he was approached by a businessman, who bought him champagne flutes as a "softener".

The 41-year-old, who urges young cricketers to come forward if they are approached in similar circumstances, says his wife was emotionally affected because she feared the mafia was involved in the bribery attempt.
