Islamabad:Controversial former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has left for London to conduct a study on how cricket academies are run in England even as media speculated that he might be going to meet ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) officials.

Latif, a veteran of 37 Tests and 164 One-day Internationals, said before his departure that he was now dead serious about establishing his academy on "most modern lines".

"I think for the last few years we have had enough of having to hold our academy courses and training sessions at different cricket grounds. We are now aiming to have a permanent place where we can run our academy on the most modern lines," he was quoted as saying in the local media on Sunday.

"I will meet with cricket officials, coaches and players who are involved in running cricket projects in the UK and get plenty of feedback from them so that we can introduce their better points in our own academy," he said.

However, the daily said some sources have not ruled out the possibility of Latif meeting with officials of ACU with whom he enjoys a "good working relationship".
