In order to to monitor and investigate any reports of corruption in cricket, the Indian cricket board is planning to appoint a consultant with an impeccable reputation to fortify its Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).

"Already a full-fledged Anti-Corruption Unit of the BCCI is in existence. However, in order to further strengthen the Anti-Corruption Unit of the BCCI especially in matters related to the Indian Premier League (IPL), it is being contemplated to bring in someone with impeccable reputation and having experience in presiding over challenging investigations relating to sporting frauds as a consultant in addition to the existing set up," BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya said.

Unlike the other sub-committees which were named on April 6, the BCCI is yet to name the members of the ACSU sub-committee.

Dalmiya, who has returned as the BCCI president at the Board's AGM, said: "BCCI believes in zero tolerance approach to corruption in the game and sporting frauds. After all, there has to be every effort to make cricket pure and spotless."
