I dunno. Something should be done, obviously, but a sting operation usually only catches the low-hanging fruit. You catch a fool who gives in to a temptation which wouldn't have come his way in the first place if it hadn't been for the operation. Meanwhile, the professional, habitual cheaters aren't careless enough to fall for a sting, and likely only work with people they have known for some time.
If you could do a reverse sting, using a cricket player to sting one of the corruption's organisers, you'd have something worthwhile. But that may be dangerous to the player; and besides, most of them seem to be based in places like China, so good bleedin' luck with that.
