New Delhi: The visiting ICC anti-corruption team on Tuesday met officials of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Delhi Police in its efforts to move investigations into match-fixing in the cricketing world.The team, led by ICC anti-corruption director Sir Paul Condon, went to CBI headquarters in the forenoon and had a meeting with the bureau sleuths who carried out investigations into match-fixing in Indian cricket. ''The ICC team members and CBI officials discussed threadbare the issues involved in match-fixing and the areas in which they could cooperate to rid the game of the malaise,'' bureau sources said. CBI Joint Director R N Sawani, who led the team that put out the report early last month after its inquiry into match-fixing in Indian cricket, was present along with other officials to brief the ICC team about the process of the inquiry and its findings and exchange views, sources said. The meeting lasted more than two hours. Besides Sir Paul, the other two members of the ICC team are Martin Hawkins and Bobbs Bob Swelley. Apart from the ICC team, one representative each has come from the Australian, New Zealand andSri Lankan cricket boards as during the inquiry, names of their players had also come up. The representatives are Greg Melick (Australia), Tim Gresson (New Zealand) and Desmond Fernando (Sri Lanka). The foreign players whose names figured during the Indian inquiry included Martin Crowe (New Zealand), Mark Waugh (Australia) and Arvinda De Silva and Arjuna Ranatunga (Sri Lanka). In the afternoon, the ICC team and representatives from other boards met senior officials of the Crime Branch including Joint Commissioner of Police Dr K K Paul at the Delhi Police headquarters. Before flying out, the ICC team is also scheduled to meet Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Ms Uma Bharati on Wednesday. Sir Paul met BCCI president Dr A C Muthiah and board's anti-corruption commissioner K Madhavan in Chennai on Sunday. ''Our task is to follow up on allegation and gather evidence in areas where CBI has no jurisdiction (non-Indian players),'' he said. UNI
