Cricket: New Regional Security Managers Appointed

The International Cricket Council has appointed five regional security managers to help protect the game from corruption in the wake of the Hansie Cronje match-fixing scandal.

The ICC said in a statement that each of the five managers has been assigned two international teams and will attend all future internationally sanctioned tours and tournaments in their region.

ICC Chief executive Malcolm Speed called the appointments a powerful demonstration of the Cricket Council's determination to rid the game of match fixing and corruption.

The five managers all have police or military backgrounds. Their appointments are effective June 1 and the managers will attend an induction camp in Sri Lanka June 10.
