ICC statement regarding false and damaging comments

The International Cricket Council rejects accusations that it has ever or would ever reveal the identity of a player or anyone else who contacts the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) with information.

Inaccurate comments made in the past few days have falsely claimed that the ICC could leak such information into the public domain. This is an irresponsible, damaging and entirely untrue allegation.

The ICC (and its ACSU) treats all information it receives with the utmost confidentiality and has never revealed details of informants. It is the stated policy of the ICC not to discuss the specific activities of the ACSU, including revealing the names of players or support personnel who report suspicious activities.

ICC Chief Executive Officer Haroon Lorgat said: “Players who pass on information to the ACSU can be fully confident that their identities will never be revealed by the unit or anyone else within the ICC.”
