Every team to have dedicated anti-graft officer during World Cup

London: In a first, all the 10 participating teams of the upcoming ODI World Cup will have a dedicated anti-corruption officer attached with it to deliver a corruption-free tournament. A news report in the Daily Telegraph said ICC will attach an anti-corruption official with each team starting from warm-up matches till the end of the tournament. “Previously, the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit had personnel deployed at each venue, meaning that teams would deal with a number of officials over the course of a tournament,” the report said. “Now, the same official will be assigned to a team from the warm-up matches to the end of the competition, staying in the same hotel as the players and travelling with them to training and matches.” The report said the move was part of ICC Anti-Corruption Unit’s effort to deliver a fixing and corruption-free World Cup and also an effort to build better relations between players and the ACU.  “By being with teams throughout the competition, it is also thought that anti-corruption officials will be better placed to spot any potential corruptors who lurk near players or back-room staff,” the report stated. — PTI
