N. Srinivasan - the first chairman of a revamped International Cricket Council - has said the world body is focused on eradicating corruption from the sport but that it will be a gradual process.

Speaking exclusively to NDTV, N. Srinivasan said the fight against malpractices is on the right track. "The code of ethics is being updated and players have started reporting the slightest approach. It is a step in the right direction but it is going to be a gradual step," he said. "ICC has done a good job in educating people and helping them learn more about how to avoid corrupt elements."

Srinivasan, however, did admit that there are certain limitations in combating corruption. "ICC's effort is to make cricket 100% clean but ICC's Anti-corruption Unit does not enjoy the same powers as law enforcing agencies around the world do. We will continue our fight though."
