Kerr-ching! Amir must suffer for the greater good

The ICC took another step against corruption at their board meeting in Dubai this month when they  set up a panel to be known as the Corruption Unit Oversight Group.

Though this  independent group will only meet once a year -  to review strategy adopted by various cricket authorities to tackle corruption - they will be on hand to provide advice and guidance to the chairman of the ICC's Anti Corruption Unit. The proliferation of big-money televised T20 competitions  in all the major cricket countries has guaranteed that  temptation to cheat among players will remain ever-present.
