New Delhi: Under pressure in the wake of the Indian Premier League spot-fixing controversy, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said on Monday that an anti-graft official will accompany the Indian cricket team to England for the Champions Trophy - scheduled to start from June 6.

The move comes after criticism from several quarters about what the BCCI and the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit had done to keep a check on spot-fixing.

On Monday, head of BCCI's anti corruption unit - Ravi Sawani - even met the chief of Delhi Police and reiterated that the Board remains committed to helping in the investigations and that its own internal inquiry is being conducted into spot-fixing allegations against three Rajasthan Royals' players including pacer S Sreesanth.
