Oh dear! The ICC Anti-Corruption unit are flexing their muscles. Could this be true?
It is reported that the so-called “corruption” unit is looking into Australia’s batting innings against Zimbabwe. That new word in cricket is back- “spot fixing”.
Is this proposed “investigation” into Australia’s “slow start” to their World Cup game cheap tokenism? Yes. You can just see the headlines the ICC will be wishing to see: “The ICC tackling corruption head on”.
The ICC’s investigation is a phony gesture of stable and cohesive governance. Nothing will come of this investigation and I would doubt if a legitimate one would take place anyway.
It’s just some good PR for the ICC.
