In a first, all the 10 participating teams of the upcoming ODI will have a dedicated anti-officer attached with it to deliver a corruption-free tournament, according to a report.

The report in the 'Daily Telegraph' said the ICC will attach an anti-official with each team starting from warm-up matches till the end of the tournament.

"Previously, the International Cricket Council's Anti-Unit had personnel deployed at each venue, meaning that teams would deal with a number of officials over the course of a tournament," the report said.

"Now, the will be assigned to a team from the warm-up matches to the end of the competition, staying in the same hotel as the players and travelling with them to training and matches."

It said the move was part of ICC Unit's effort to deliver a fixing and corruption-free and also an effort to build better relations between players and the ACU.

"By being with teams throughout the competition, it is also thought that officials will be better placed to spot any potential corruptors who lurk near players or back-room staff and so identify any behaviour that may be suspicious," the report further stated.
