London: International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) director Paul Condon promised on Tuesday to eliminate corruption from cricket.

"The aim is to rid cricket of corruption once and for all," Condon said while introducing a team of five security specialists brought in to protect the game from possible future fixing scandals. "The international game now has a highly professional security infrastructure that will provide cricket with a discreet but effective long-term deterrent," explained Condon, formerly head of London's metropolitan police. "The aim is to rid cricket from corruption once and for all, but in a fashion that does not inhibit the enjoyment of players and those who follow the game," he added. Of the five security specialists four, like Condon, have police backgrounds while the other is a former senior Army officer.
