Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) today called for strong vigilance from all participants and advised that it will be monitoring strictly any suspicious activity in stadia during the upcoming T20 Challenge as part of its enhanced anti-corruption protocols. 

The protocols include the sighting of any persons deemed to be engaging in betting activities or the facilitation of betting activities within the stadia. Such persons will be removed from the stadium. 

"With the use of enhanced technology match fixers are using people posing as fans in the stadium to relay live data to illegal betting houses functioning abroad," said CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat. 

"These companies and their activities create an additional threat to the integrity of the game. 

"To prevent such activities, we have strengthened our in-stadia monitoring and protection capabilities, including the active surveillance of crowd activities. 

"Cricket loving fans will recognize the risk that corrupt activities present to the game. We call on all fans to assist us in reporting any 'live' betting related activities from any viewing areas within the stadium so that these can be monitored and addressed." 

The T20 Challenge begins on November 12 with a double-header at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium featuring the Knights versus the Cape Cobras followed by the Highveld Lions versus the Titans.
