As part of ongoing efforts to combat corruption in the sport, the International Cricket Council (ICC) will work more closely with Interpol. ICC’s general manager of the anti-corruption unit, Alex Marshall has met Interpol officials in Lyon last week to seek closer working relations. ICC does have an excellent relationship with law enforcement agencies in a number of countries, but working with Interpol will further help them to connect with their 194 members.
The main purpose of this association is the education of players & prevention and disruption of corruptors. The game cricket has suffered a series of cases of corruption in recent years.
The ICC earlier this year had granted Sri Lankan cricketers a 15-day amnesty in order to report previously undisclosed information relating to corruption in the sport.
This was followed by Sanath Jayasuriya, the former captain and chairman of selectors handing over a two-year ban for refusing to cooperate with any investigation conducted by its anti-corruption unit.
