ISLAMABAD, April 4 (APP): International Cricket Council
(ICC) Tuesday named Alex Marshall as a new General Manager of its
Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU).
The 55 year old Chief Constable Marshall is presently the
Chief Executive of the `College of Policing’ which is the
professional body for police in England and Wales. He will join ICC
in September, an ICC press release issued here said.
Marshall began his career as a police officer in 1980. He was
appointed Chief Constable of Hampshire in 2008, and was selected to
head the new College of Policing when it was created in 2012.
He holds a Masters Degree in Criminology from the University of
Cambridge and also attended the Royal College of Defence Studies.
Chairman ACU, Ronnie Flanagan said, “Marshall brings with him
from his distinguished police career, a tremendous wealth of
knowledge, expertise, experience and commitment which I know will
further bolster the ACU in its fight against corruption in cricket.”
Marshall said he is very keen to play his part in keeping his
favourite sport clean. “My police career has taught me the
importance of prevention and education, operating to clear
standards, making best use of intelligence and prosecuting where
“I see these approaches as equally applicable to my new role
in the ICC which I relish taking up in September. Until then I, of
course, remain fully committed to my role at the College of
Policing,” he said.
Marshall is the fourth General Manager of the ICC’s ACU since
its inception in 2000. His predecessors were Jeff Rees (2000-2008);
Ravi Sawani (2008-2011); and Yogendra Pal Singh (2011-2017).
