Cricket Australia to review integrity management
Cricket Australia has appointed former AFL general manager of football Adrian Anderson to review its integrity management.
CA boss James Sutherland said the decision to conduct the review was made before the recent Australian Crime Commission (ACC) report, which highlighted the threat of match-fixing as well as doping concerns, and the timing of the announcement was coincidental.
"Public faith in the integrity of sports results they see on the playing field is absolutely critical and we want everything we do pressure tested by an independent specialist expert to be sure we are as good as we can be," said Sutherland.
"While the timing is coincidental, and while the ACC report had no evidence of cricket concerns, its publication is a timely reminder that no modern elite sport is immune from risk."
Anderson will review and report by mid-year so that any recommendations can be considered before the start of the 2013-14 Australian cricket season.
He will look at all aspects of Australian cricket integrity management, which includes anti-doping policies and disciplinary processes, domestic cricket anti-corruption and CA's involvement in the ICC's global anti-corruption programme.
