Dubai: The ICC on Friday, confirmed the review of its under-fire anti-corruption unit even as it dismissed reports raising questions on the watchdog's effectiveness in dealing with the menace of spot and match-fixing.

In the wake of reports claiming Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) will now be controlled by the sport's big three - India, England and Australia, the ICC confirmed the development without undermining the role that ACSU has performed since its inception in 2000.

"The International Cricket Council today confirmed that a review of the sport's collective approach in protecting against the threat of corruption, at both an international and domestic level, is to take place," said the ICC in a statement.
