In India betting/fixing on cricket is a big business/market around twenty thousand people are involved in every part of country and doing around ten thousand cores Rs unofficial business here. It is for these reasons that the NPL’s Anti Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) continues to pursue the three objectives of investigation, education, and prevention.

Its first Terms of Reference covered the three year period up to the end of the NPL NATIONAL T20 CHAMPIONSHIPS Those original Terms have been reviewed and amended to recognize the wider role now required. With effect from Aug 2005, the Anti-Corruption Unit was renamed as the NPL Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.

Its Two Principal Roles are:

The Code of Conduct and Discipline (CCD) describes a procedure for dealing with disciplinary problems within the game, and gives general descriptions of unacceptable conduct from players. The Code fully endorses the ‘Spirit of Cricket’ Preamble to the 2000 Code of Laws. It is to be read in conjunction with the NPL Players’ Code of Conduct.

  • The Anti-Corruption and Security Unit is an operating division of the NPL Cricket Code of Conduct Commission, which is chaired chairman of legal committee of NPL Cricket INDIA

  • Allegations of corrupt activity are probed thoroughly by the Unit’s Investigators, sometimes with the assistance of concern state Police Officers. In support of their efforts, the ACSU’s Information Manager continues to build an national network of contacts in both the legal and illegal markets so that where concerns are raised the Unit is able to activate these relationships and effectively investigate allegations.
  • All players and officials that take part in the top level of Indian cricket pass through the ACSU’s education program.
  • As part of the education process, players are given details of the ways in which corruptors may seek to ‘groom’ them from an early age as well as the penalties that exist – not just for fixing all or part of a match but also for accepting money, benefit or other reward for the provision of information or failing to disclose the inappropriate conduct of others.
  • In organized sports, match fixing or game fixing occurs when a match is played to a completely or partially pre-determined result, violating the rules of the game and often the law. Where the sporting competition in question is a race then the incident is referred to as race fixing. Games that are deliberately lost are sometimes called thrown games. When a team intentionally loses a game to obtain a perceived future competitive advantage rather than gamblers being involved, the team is often said to have tanked the game instead of having thrown it. In pool hustling, tanking is known as dumping.
