Morgan promises extra ‘vigilance’

Afp May 17, 2010

BRIDGETOWN: World cricket’s top administrator has insisted officials are ‘extremely vigilant’ when it comes to spot-fixing after Pakistan’s Danish Kaneria was arrested in a betting probe.

However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) President David Morgan insisted that he had “no knowledge of any spot-fixing”. Kaneria and Mervyn Westfield were arrested in connection with a police investigation into betting before being questioned and released on bail.

“I’ve been aware of the potential problem at Essex for a little while,” said Morgan. “And I was made aware by Haroon Lorgat that those two cricketers had been seen by the Essex police.” Morgan insisted the ICC’s anti-corruption and security unit was on the case. AFP
