The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced an unprecedented 15-day amnesty for anyone who has failed to report a corrupt approach in Sri Lanka. The amnesty, which will run from 16-31 January, is the first of its kind held by the cricket's world governing body.
A failure to report an approach, incident or information can result in a ban from cricket of up to five years, but those who come forward during the ICC amnesty with information on corrupt conduct, which they had previously failed to report, will not be charged.
“If any player or participant has any information concerning corrupt conduct they should come forward and share it with us now without fear of any repercussions,” ICC said in a statement.
The announcement of the amnesty came just a week after Sri Lanka was rated as the most corrupt cricket nation by the international body.
