ICC anti-corruption chief Alex Marshall is wary of corrupt practices during the on-going pandemic. Marshall said that the global viral outbreak has not put a stop to spot and match-fixing. With the global cricket suspended, cricket boards are suffering from financial setbacks which has forced them to opt for pay cuts.
This situation is a worrying point for the ICC anti-corruption unit and therefore they are having a closer look at the situation. "COVID-19 may have put a temporary stop on the playing of international and domestic cricket around the world but the corrupters are still active," Marshall told a news network. "As a result, our work with members, players, player associations and agents continue."
ICC is trying its best to reach out to players and the members of the board in order to avoid any unfortunate incident. "We are seeing known corrupters use this time, when players are on social media more than ever, to connect with them and try to build a relationship that they can exploit at a later date," Marshall concluded.
