CA sets up 'dedicated integrity' unit to fight against fixing, doping

Sydney, Dec 21 : Cricket Australia (CA) has reportedly set up a dedicated integrity unit as a pre-emptive strike against match-fixing and doping.

The move is a response to a review of CA's integrity systems by former Australian Football League (AFL) executive and interim Cycling Australia boss Adrian Anderson, with supplements scandals in the AFL and National Rugby League (NRL) having alerted all sports to the need to be vigilant about performance-enhancing drugs.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, after match-fixing scandals both tainted Indian and New Zealand cricket respectively, CA has made the move and will appoint their senior legal counsel Iain Roy as the head of the unit, which will also cover code-of-behaviour issues and the illicit drugs policy.

CA's anti-corruption and security manager will lead surveillance of domestic cricket in Australia, including the Big Bash League, and 'undertake due diligence' on overseas players who want to join the league, the report added.
