London: In a show of respect for cricketers' privacy, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has finally ruled out introduction of spy cameras in dressing rooms as part of the overall strategy to remove corruption from the game.[an error occurred while processing this directive]While the Executive Committee of ICC agreed in Kuala Lumpur last month that cameras would be placed in the changing area, they will be positioned only at the entrances to monitor the flow of people in and out."It is certainly not the intention to spy on players or to intrude," an ICC spokesman said on Monday. With this, the dressing room, considered inner sanctum by players, will remain just that.The new measure is expected to come into operation early next year when India visits England for the Test series. It is one of a number of specific proposals from the ICC Management Committee, whose members include ICC president Malcolm Gray, and its chief executive Malcolm Speed.Effectively, they have put meat on the bones of the 22 recommendations made in June by the Anti-Corruption Unit headed by Sir Paul Condon.The spokesman said international Test captains, including Nasser Hussain of England, have been consulted and will continue to have a say in the proposals. The proposals include banning of all mobile phones from the dressing room, except that of the team manager, and the screening of calls to players at theteam hotels and posting of security guards at team hotels and dressing rooms. Other measures include visitors signing in and out of team hotels and increased security at neutral venues, such as Sharjah. Five security officers will also be contracted to ICC to cover two Test nations together, for example one to cover both Australia and New Zealand. David Graveney, chief executive of the Professional Cricketers' Association, also expressed his apprehensions over the new measures to be adopted by ICC saying there is a fine line between protecting the game and intruding into private life of players.
