The International Cricket Council (ICC) will work more closely with Interpol as part of ongoing efforts to combat corruption in the sport. The General Manager of ICC’s Anti-Corruption unit, Alex Marshall had visited Interpol’s headquarters in Lyon last week to explore how both the organisations can operate more productively.
"The ICC and Interpol are keen on working together and our meetings in Lyon last week were productive. The ICC has an excellent relationship with law enforcement agencies in a number of countries but working with Interpol means we are connecting with their 194 members," Marshall said in a media release.
Marshall said the idea is to ensure that players are better educated about the corruptors and Interpol's vast network would be helpful in this. Earlier this year, the ICC had granted Sri Lankan cricketers a 15-day amnesty to report previously undisclosed information relating to corruption in the sport.
