The International Cricket Council has asked Sri Lanka to incorporate domestic anti-corruption codes before the start of the Sri Lanka Premier League Twenty20 tournament which is scheduled for August.
This decision by the ICC has been taken when the ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) met in Kuala Lumpur on the 24th and 25th June 2012.
During the meeting, upon hearing that neither Sri Lanka nor Bangladesh have still not incorporated the domestic anti-corruption codes, the CEC recommended that the ICC Board instruct the respective boards to implement the codes forthwith.
It has been decided by the ICC Chief Executives’ Committee that in Sri Lanka’s case, certainly the codes should be implement before the SLPL.
The ICC also has considered the importance of a uniform set of anti-corruption regulations across all full members, in order to avoid any potential jurisdictional loopholes and/or inconsistencies in the continued and ever-vigilant protection of cricket from corruption.
