Criminalising match fixing the single most effective move for cricket


Achievers News Bureau: (25/06):- A senior official of the ICC’s anti-corruption unit feels that making match-fixing a criminal offence in India will be the “single-most-effective thing” in a country where the police are “operating with one hand tied behind their back” in the absence of any stringent law.

Legal experts have been advocating for years the need to criminalise match-fixing in India, the lack of which has meant that the hands of authorities have been tied when it comes to investigating corruption in the popular sport.

“At the moment with no legislation in place, we’ll have good relations with Indian police, but they are operating with one hand tied behind their back,” ICC ACU’s coordinator of investigations, Steve Richardson, was quoted as saying by ‘ESPNcricinfo’.
