Sydney - Banned New Zealand cricketer Lou Vincent has been featured in a video message to Cricket World Cup teams and officials over the perils of match-fixing.

"My name is Lou Vincent and I am a cheat" is part of Vincent's warning to more than 200 players in Australia and New Zealand for the World Cup.

Vincent, who appeared for about 30 seconds in footage, was banned for life last year by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

The 35-year-old Vincent, who played 23 Tests and more than 100 limited-overs internationals, pleaded guilty to 18 match-fixing or spot-fixing charges involving matches he played for English counties Lancashire in 2008 and Durham in 2011. Eleven of the 18 offences carried life bans.
