London:

The England Cricket Board has instituted an anti-corruption unit under a former police officer to check the kind of corruption that came to fore in last year's spot-fixing scandal.

"Jane Stichbury, a former chief constable for Dorset and member of Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary, has been appointed chairman of the ECB's Access Unit," the 'Daily Telegraph' reported.

The unit will liaise with the ICC's anti-corruption unit and the ECB's disciplinary commission.

"It will be responsible for the detection and prevention of corruption in domestic cricket as well as building on the player education programmes being run by the Professional Cricketers' Association."

Stichbury is among the first women to become an ECB Director when she joined last year after serving as a police officer.

"The Access Unit is a work in progress.
