The International Cricket Council (ICC) has launched a new anti-corruption platform.

The app aims to help protect the integrity of the game and provide users with essential information to report any suspicious incidents or behaviour related to corruption or doping.

The technology had a soft launch at this year’s U19 Cricket World Cup in New Zealand and will continue to be developed with more features.

ICC Chief Executive, David Richardson, commented: “The ICC is committed to protecting the spirit of the game and this app will play a huge part in helping us in our objective.

“We must educate players, administrators and support staff on an ongoing basis and the app allows us to do that, driving awareness of the risks, supporting education and providing a simple mechanism for reporting concerns.”

ICC General Manager – Anti Corruption, Alex Marshall, added: “The ICC is committed to the pursuit of a corruption-free sport and this app will support that ambition. Our focus is on education, prevention, disruption, investigation and prosecution and the app has a role to play in this.

“It will complement the face to face education sessions every international player receives and provides them with a simple tool to report.”
