HI secretary general Narinder Batra told IANS that the constitution will be amended to insert the clause and is likely to be taken up in the next executive board meeting of HI.
“We have stringent rules in our constitution to keep a close eye on match fixing. Now we want to bring in a clause that will also enable police to check the mobile phones of the players,” said Batra.
Batra also informed reporters that HI has stringent laws in place to keep agents away from the players. “Players agents are not allowed to stay in team hotels nor are they allowed to mingle with the team during any tournament,” said Batra.
Batra said that in the midst of the spot-fixing scandal in the IPL, HI is also taking steps to educate the players to stay away from suspicious characters.
