Iterating that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had a zero tolerance approach to fraud and corruption, Dalmiya stressed the need for "every effort" to make cricket pure and spotless.

"Already a full-fledged Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of the BCCI is in existence," Dalmiya, who took over as president last month, said in a statement.

"However, in order to further strengthen the Anti-Corruption Unit of the BCCI, especially in matters related to the Indian Premier League (IPL), it is being contemplated to bring in someone with impeccable reputation and having experience in presiding over challenging investigations relating to sporting frauds as a consultant in addition to the existing set up.

"BCCI believes in zero tolerance approach to corruption in the game and sporting frauds. After all, there has to be every effort to make cricket pure and spotless," the statement added.
