New Zealand Cricket says if it follows Australia's lead of a corruption amnesty, this will only apply to domestic players.

Under New Zealand Cricket's code of conduct, players who fail to report corruption-related information can be suspended.

Australian domestic cricketers are to be given an amnesty ''window'' until the end of next month in which to report any previous corruption-related information.

New Zealand Cricket's head of operations Lindsay Crocker said the next board meeting would consider an amnesty but only for domestic players, as international players come under the jurisdiction of the International Cricket Council and its code of conduct.

"We're just talking about at the domestic level, which is the T20, Plunket Shield, and the 50 over domestic competition."

Mr Crocker said the Cricket Players Association was in favour of an amnesty window too.
