Cape Town - The MCC World Cricket committee has recommended lifetime bans for any captain, vice-captain or coach found guilty of corruption.

The committee met in Cape Town on Sunday and Monday, and told the media on Tuesday it had made recommendations to the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).

It had suggested that ACSU consider removing the minimum sentences in the ICC's anti-corruption code, and that education materials and punishments at international level should be mirrored at domestic level.

ACSU should also work more closely with players to establish trust, the committee said.

Where not already in place, anti-corruption clauses should be included in contracts.

The committee said it had an open mind regarding polygraph tests, but for now it did not recommend them.

The 19-member committee consists of some of the greatest retired cricket players from around the world, including South Africans Shaun Pollock, Barry Richards and Dave Richardson.
