For the first time in the history of the Cricket World Cup, all the participating teams in the quadrennial event will be an individual dedicated anti-corruption officer. Reports claim that it is done to ensure that we witness a corruption free tournament. As per reports in the Daily Telegraph, it is learnt that the International Cricket Council (ICC) will assign an anti-corruption official with each team. They will be involved with the teams right from the start of the warm-up matches till the conclusion of the tournament.

“Previously, the International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption Unit had personnel deployed at each venue, meaning that teams would deal with a number of officials over the course of a tournament,” the report said.

“Now, the same official will be assigned to a team from the warm-up matches to the end of the competition, staying in the same hotel as the players and travelling with them to training and matches,” it added.

As per reports, it is believed that the ICC assigned the anti-corruption officials not only to deliver a corruption and fixing free tournament but also to build a better relations between the players and the Anti Corruption Unit.

“By being with teams throughout the competition, it is also thought that anti-corruption officials will be better placed to spot any potential corruptors who lurk near players or back-room staff and so identify any behaviour that may be suspicious,” the report further stated.
