ICC approve revised anti-corruption code

ICC on Monday approved its revised anti-corruption code, which makes it possible for a banned player to play domestic cricket before the end of his international ban. The amendents to the code were ratified by the ICC Board that met here for two days. The revision in the code has given fresh hope to banned Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir to return to action while serving a spot-fixing ban that ends in Sep 2015. ICC chairman N Srinivasan explained the conditions under which a banned player can play domestic cricket before the end of his punishment.

‘The revised code makes provision for a banned player to gain an early return to domestic cricket in certain circumstances. When exercising his discretionary powers in this regard, however, the chairman of the ACSU will consider a number of factors, including the level of remorse shown by the player, his/her co-operation with ACSU’s education programme and/or if the player has helped ACSU by disclosing all information that, in turn, has helped it to enforce the code in respect of others engaged in corruption conduct,’ ICC said.
