London:

In order to prosecute players, match officials and franchise owners found guilty of corrupt practices in domestic T20 leagues such as IPL, the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) is likely to recommend stronger anti-corruption laws to its members.

Sir Ronnie Flannagan, the chairman of the ACSU, is expected to address these concerns during ICC's annual conference that had begun here yesterday.

According to 'ESPNcricinfo', Flannagan is expected to highlight the threats and challenges, and give recommendations to ICC members on how to curb the dangers of corruption in cricket.

These concerns come in the wake of various scandals relating to spot-fixing and betting in lucrative domestic T20 leagues like the Indian Premier League, Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL).

In Bangladesh, Mohammad Ashraful confessed to indulging in corrupt practices during the BPL.
