ICC in talks with Interpol over fighting corruption

London:The International Cricket Council is in talks with Interpol about forging formal links to help combat corruption in the sport.
The international police agency has contacted cricket's governing body in the wake of three Pakistan players being banned for a minimum of five years for their involvement in spot-fixing.
Ronnie Flanagan, chairman of the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit, said he wants increased co-operation with crime-fighting agencies around the world to prevent corruption from threatening the integrity of the sport and its commercial appeal.
"The director general of Interpol made contact with us and what I am going to explore is a memorandum of understanding... so we can mutually cooperate and work together," Flanagan said.Fifa recently pledged to pay Interpol 20 million (Dh114.5 million) to help it crack down on the growing threat of match-fixing and betting fraud in football. But cricket lacks the funds to pay Interpol
