Cricket Australia today announced that the Australian players will be given an amnesty window , which will be till the end of November to report any information related to corruption they have . Cricket Auustralia laid down Anti Corruption Code, under which any player who fails to report any corruption related approach, or any evidence they have related to any third party involvement in this , can be sanctioned.
But Cricket Australia stressed that any player who comes and reports te matter within the amnesty window will not be sanctioned . Also , the CA has established a hotline ,especially meant for the players, officials and the public to report and corruption related issue.
CA’s Senior Manager of Integrity Iain Roy said that this will surely help to control the corruption in the system. He added that CA must ensure that the public has full faith on the system and integrity of the game .
Roy also added that there were no reports on players or officials , who are hiding information or are involved in this , but CA just wants to eliminate out all unwanted charecters ahead of the 2015 World CUp.
Though Roy feels that there’s a culture out there in Australia on reporting any corruption information a player has, but he added that there are still some who are not following this. This step is a reminder to all those , with a warning that they can be otherwise be sanctioned.
This steps are as a result of the World Cup earlier next year, with Australia being the main host. Just to restore the faith of cricket fans, CA is trying hard and this step will surely help their cause.
