Cape Town - The Marylebone Cricket Club's (MCC) world cricket committee says the ICC should consider using undercover investigations to root out corrupt cricketers.

The committee, made up of former international players and umpires, said the "mystery shopper operations" would be "preferably directed at somebody already suspected."

Following a two-day meeting in South Africa, the recommendation was one of 10 made on Tuesday to the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.

The committee also called for lifetime bans for any captain, vice-captain or coach found guilty of corruption and urged the ICC to "ensure uniformity" for the Decision Review System.

Referring to India's refusal to use the technology, it said "it is wrong that there are such different playing conditions."
