Hero CPL reasserts its commitment to Anti-Corruption

PRESS RELEASE:- The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) can today confirm that an Indian national was questioned and subsequently ejected from Warner Park on Tuesday night at the beginning of the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots versus Barbados Tridents match after being found to have been involved in ‘pitch-siding’.

As a result of ongoing monitoring by the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of the International Cricket Council (ICC), which is chaired by Sir Ronnie Flanagan, and Hero CPL’s Head of Security Andy Murphy from Eventsec, this individual was found to have been involved in live betting and has been subsequently banned from attending any future CPL matches. In addition, his details will be shared with key international representative bodies.

Hero CPL management is highlighting its commitment to running a clean tournament and operating within the set ICC rules and regulations.

Damien O’Donohoe, CEO of the Hero Caribbean Premier League commented: “In praising the efforts of our Security and Anti-Corruption team for their efforts in St. Kitts & Nevis, I would like to reiterate CPL’s unwavering commitment to protecting and enhancing the reputation of the game of cricket. The individual in question has been dealt with swiftly and this statement will undoubtedly deter any future unscrupulous behaviour at our games.

“The Hero CPL has a zero tolerance policy towards any forms of corruption or illegal activity and will deal with it quickly and effectively through the appropriate channels. We are working closely with all our partners – including the ICC, the police and ground security in each of the Hero CPL venues – and would like to thank them for their ongoing efforts on our behalf.”
