Match-fixing: IPL not using ICC unit

NEW DELHI: The IPL has rejected an offer to use ICC’s anti-corruption and security experts in South Africa for the tournament, preferring to use its own staff.

The ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit is used for international tournaments, but the body does not make it mandatory for domestic competitions.

A domestic competition

Although it attracts highly paid leading players from all over the world, The IPL, run by the BCCI is not considered an international tournament.

“IPL opted not to use the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit, it’s a domestic tournament and there’s no compulsion to use ACSU,” ICC spokesman Brian Murgatroyd said. “Every event has its own protocol and the IPL organisers preferred to use their own staff.” — AP
