Cricket in 'better shape' to fight corruption: Ex-ICC chief
Kuala Lumpur, June 29 (ANI): World cricket's outgoing chief Haroon Lorgat has admitted spot-fixing scandals were a low point of his tenure, but insisted the sport was now in better shape to fight corruption.
Lorgat, now replaced by new International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive David Richardson, said the sport's response to its worst betting controversy in years, would act as a deterrent to cheats, reports The Nation.
The ICC had recently asked Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to have an anti-corruption code in place after media reports emerged of corruption in domestic cricket.
During a two-day meeting, the ICC Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) discussed the integrity issues in domestic cricket.
At the meeting, the CEC, after hearing that neither Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) nor Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have incorporated domestic anti-corruption codes, recommended that the ICC Board instruct the two boards to implement these codes forthwith.
The CEC also said the SLC should have the code in place certainly before the start of the Sri Lanka Premier League Twenty20, scheduled to be held in August 2012. The CEC also recommended to the ICC Board that the BCB be directed to deliver a comprehensive report on the allegations of corrupt activities during the recent Bangladesh Premier League. (ANI)
