The ICC on Saturday decided that a revised version of a more robust and strengthened ICC Anti-Corruption Code will be submitted for approval at the January 2014 meeting here.
At its two-day meeting, the ICC Board received an update on the investigations into the Bangladesh Premier League 2013 in which the world body charged nine individuals with various offences. Seven were charged for fixing-related offences and the two others for failing to comply with their obligation to report corrupt approaches that were made to them.
The matter of Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir’s five-year ban also came up for discussion and the ICC Board decided to review it in due course after the revised code was finalised and adopted.
The outcomes of last month’s ICC chief executives’ committee meeting held in Dubai, which covered issues like Umpires Decision Review System, bad light and the ODI playing conditions, were also discussed.
The ICC Development International (IDI), the commercial arm of the ICC, reviewed an inspection report by its venue consultant on the venues for the World T20 Bangladesh 2014 and accepted the BCB’s request to extend the deadline for the completion of the stadia till 30 November this year. The format and schedule of the World Twenty20 will be announced in Dhaka on Oct. 27.
