The report further stated that people outside the game had made five disruptions and subsequent investigations were on their way. ”There were five disruptions — where individuals who are not directly involved in cricket have their corrupt activities disrupted — and 13 investigations remained ongoing as at May 31, 2018. Two of the investigations were media stings, one investigation exonerated a groundsman and several players whilst the other is ongoing,” the report revealed.
‘T20 Leagues to Blame’
In recent times, there have been a plethora of T20 Leagues with almost every country having a flagship T20 League. However, the ICC reports that most of these global leagues have been organized with the purposes of curroption.“These leagues range from well managed – in anti-corruption terms – global events through to those organized entirely for the purposes of corruption. The most obvious example of the latter is the Ajman All Stars event which took place in the UAE in early 2018,” the report indicated.
“Going forward, it is intended to set minimum standards in anti-corruption to cover all the new T20 leagues across the world because it is not possible to police every one of those matches in person,” stated the report further.
