N Srinivasan, the new ICC Chairman has said that it is the governing body’s priority to clean up the sport of cricket. Though Srinivasan faces allegations against him at home in India, and is being investigated by a Supreme Court appointed panel, he maintained that he hasn’t done anything wrong.

Speaking to NDTV, Srinivasan said, “The code of ethics is being updated and players have started reporting the slightest approach. It is a step in the right direction but it is going to be a gradual step. ICC has done a good job in educating people and helping them learn more about how to avoid corrupt elements.”

Srinivasan said that the ICC will continue its fight against corrupt practices. However, he did say that the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) do not have any big powers. He said, “ICC’s effort is to make cricket 100% clean but ICC’s anti corruption unit does not enjoy the same powers as law enforcing agencies around the world do. We will continue our fight though.”

Srinivasan refused to speak about the controversies that hit him and the Supreme Court’s decision to make him step aside. He said, “There are certain matters in the court and I can’t speak on them. I have not done anything to bring disrepute or tarnish the game. I stepped aside as BCCI chief and I didn’t go back to poke my nose after that.”

The ICC chairman chaired his first round of meetings in Melbourne recently, where his appointment was confirmed. This has come about after the ICC was restructured with more powers lying with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia (CA).
