Is the ICC's anti corruption unit so weak?
Its the Delhi Police that arrested the players on their own. They didn't get any information from the ICC's anti-corruption unit.
BCCI has suspended the players now. Just for information.
@Bill, IPL has engaged the services of the ICC's ACSU. They should have been the first party to sniff something fishy. They didn't do anything. BCCI set up its own anti corruption only recently.
@Bill, that report says that the ICC's anti -corruption unit had raised some concerns about some activities in the IPL and after some initial no-no, BCCI allowed them to look into the matter since 2010 IPL which means that unit is still monitoring the matches.

Corruption in cricket has often been big news. While one has to agree that there is corruption in cricket, it is not clear that it is a systemic plague. It is misleading to generalize and taint IPL. There are hundreds of players performing wid integrity, promoting positive societal values and providing good role models to the younger generation. It’s sad that in some cases like dis financial considerations rule, though one has to admit d rate of temptation for some players is too high. Proper vigilance is in order & d BCCI’d see that such things don’t happen in d future…Sreesanth should never again play cricket for the country or any associate clubs.

The ICC's anti corruption unit raised concerns with the IPL/BCCI from 2010. The BCCI wouldn't take any action until 2012 when they set up their own anti corruption unit. It appears the action was taken by the police not the BCCI. Once the players were brought in for questioning, the BCCI acted and suspended them. It appears that the information was passed on to the BCCI at least three years ago but no action was taken or allowed to be taken until the police got involved.
Edit: The story was that it was passed on to the BCCI for action as per the news report.

The Incompetant Cricket Clowns could not track an elephant with a blood nose through the snow let alone catch match fixers, if it came out that they were on the take I wouldn't be at all surprised, I believe Sep Blatter and Antonio Samarach are expected to be joining the executive : )

"I don’t understand when people say ICC should investigate. When have they? Actually, now it should be rephrased as “BCCI should investigate”. ICC can’t do anything."
