Bookies using facebook


James Anderson has revealed Facebook has become the latest tool in the hands of illegal bookmakers to approach players, a danger that the ICC is keeping a close eye on. Anderson’s claim came after former Australian captain, Steve Waugh, stated that 56 international players reported being approached by bookies in the past year alone.
“We are regularly briefed by the ICC, told what to look out for and what constitutes an approach. There are strict ICC regulations about what to do if you are approached and we are all aware that it’s an offence if you don’t inform the right people if it does happen,” Anderson was quoted as saying by ‘the Daily Mail’.
