League Notes: NZ Police Meet With Cricket World Cup Organizers To Discuss Corruption
New Zealand police have held talks with the Int'l Cricket Council "to sign a formal information-sharing agreement before the 2015 Cricket World Cup." The ICC anti-corruption unit met police and cricket World Cup organizers in Wellington in August "to discuss cricket corruption ahead of competition planning" (NEW ZEALAND HERALD, 12/12). ... Russia's freestyle skiing federation "has banned national champion Anna Orlovskaya for two years" for a doping offense. A Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) statement did not specify the details of Orlovskaya's violation, labeling it as "a breach of anti-doping rules" (AFP, 12/12).
