By joining hands with Interpol, ICC will be connecting to 194 of their members Getty

The International Cricket Council has held discussions with the Interpol in order to facilitate better cooperation from police across the globe as the governing body looks to fight corruption in the game.

Incidentally, Alex Marshall, the General Manager of ICC's Anti-Corruption unit, had visited Interpol's headquarters in Lyon last week to ensure there would be cooperation between the two organisations.

"The ICC and Interpol are keen on working together and our meetings in Lyon last week were productive. The ICC has an excellent relationship with law enforcement agencies in a number of countries but working with Interpol means we are connecting with their 194 members," Marshall said.

"Our focus is on the education of players and prevention and disruption of corruptors. Where our enquiries reveal criminal offences have been committed, we will refer this to the relevant law enforcement organisations and this makes Interpol an important partner for us," he added.

"Sport brings people together, but criminals looking to make large profits can undermine its integrity. Our meetings and cooperation with partners such as the ICC help us shape a collaborative, holistic response," Jose de Gracia, Assistant Director of Interpol's Criminal Networks unit.

Last year, Al Jazeera aired an investigative documentary, where it had noted that they had evidence of "corruption at the highest levels of cricket". The broadcaster had also said they were in talks with Interpol about its findings.
