ICC's ACSU to recommend stronger anti-corruption laws
In order to prosecute players, match officials and franchise owners found guilty of corrupt practices in domestic T20 leagues such as IPL, the ICC`s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) is likely to recommend stronger anti-corruption laws to its members.
Sir Ronnie Flannagan, the chairman of the ACSU, is expected to address these concerns during ICC`s annual conference that had begun here yesterday.
According to 'ESPNcricinfo', Flannagan is expected to highlight the threats and challenges, and give recommendations to ICC members on how to curb the dangers of corruption in cricket.
These concerns come in the wake of various scandals relating to spot-fixing and betting in lucrative domestic T20 leagues like the Indian Premier League, Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL).
Taking the investigations in IPL spot-fixing scandal forward, the Delhi Police`s Special Cell has examined more cricketers, including a left-arm bowler, who plays from Uttar Pradesh and is part of an IPL team from South India, in the last few days.
So far, Delhi Police has arrested three cricketers -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan and have made another cricketer Sidharth Trivedi a witness in the case.
The cops have also arrested a large number of bookies including Ashwini Aggarwal alias Tinku Mandi and Ramesh Vyas and Rajasthan Royals owner Raj Kundra was also questioned. Delhi Police had claimed that Kundra had bet during IPL matches.
Chennai Super Kings 'Team Principal' Gurunath Meiyappan, was also arrested for alleged involvement in betting before being granted bail.
In Bangladesh, Mohammad Ashraful confessed to indulging in corrupt practices during the BPL.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
