Cricket Australia appoints Anderson to review integrity management

Melbourne:

Cricket Australia (CA) appointed former Australian Football League (AFL) general manager football operations Adrian Anderson to review their integrity management.

CA chief executive officer (CEO) James Sutherland said in a release that Australian cricket, in common with international cricket, has a long-standing, proactive approach to sports integrity management.

"But public faith in the integrity of sports results they see on the playing field is absolutely critical and we want everything we do pressure tested by an independent specialist expert to be sure we are as good as we can be," he said.

Sutherland said the review had been sanctioned before the recent Australian Crime Commission (ACC) report on sports corruption and talks with Anderson were underway at the time that report was published.

"While the timing is coincidental, and while the ACC report had no evidence of cricket concerns, its publication is a timely reminder that no modern elite sport is immune from risk," he said.

Anderson has been appointed to review and report by mid-year so that any recommendations can be considered before the start of the 2013-14 Australian cricket season. He will look at all aspects of Australian cricket integrity management, which includes anti-doping policies and disciplinary processes, domestic cricket anti-corruption and CA's involvement in the ICC's global anti-corruption program.

Sutherland said CA approached Anderson because he was independent of CA and had significant elite sports integrity management expertise through his previous role at the AFL.
