World Cup shuffles and ICC Anti-Corruption Unit’s Steve Richardson Part 1

August 14, 2020

Some more movement at the ICC this week, as the team discuss the decision to switch the 2021 Men's T20 World Cup to India, push the Australian edition back to 2022, as well as shifting the 2021 Women's World Cup to 2022. Then it's news updates, and another Dutch Topklasse report from Rod Lyall. This week's interview is the first half of an informative conversation with Steve Richardson of the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit. He answers a range of question on the ACU's work, from his personal background in joining the team, the ACU's day-to-day workings, its structures and accountability within the ICC, procedures in how they investigate unethical behaviour, as well as measures to protect players from corrupt operators. Steve also gives his thoughts on the efficacy of amnesties, and the effects of gambling's legality on ACU work
