The International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) might become the first victim of the major restructuring of the world governing body after more than a decade of failing to control fixing within the game.

A review into ACSU's future would begin with a meeting in London this month.

According to the Dawn, the review has been ordered by the Big Three, who are the new controlling forces at the ICC, and would also include the governing body's chief executive Dave Richardson.

ACSU, which costs the board an estimated 5.5 million-dollars yearly, had reportedly been set up to being match fixers to justice and employs seven regional officers based around the world as well as staff in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) including its head Sir Ronnie Flanagan.

However, the Big Three, India, England and Australia, along with the ICC feel that ACSU is reportedly ignoring the duties it had been assigned to and senior officials are questioning whether it's money is well spent given the fact the unit has not managed to land a significant conviction since it was established 14 years ago.

Speculations are that many within the ICC believe that allowing individual boards to set up their own investigation units would be a more effective way of policing the game, as they feel that ACSU's methods are outdated, the report added.

If ACSU survives the shake-up at the ICC, its future role might be to become an analytical umbrella body gathering and processing information rather than an investigatory force, the report further added.
