The second Champions League Twenty20 tournament will be played under strict anti-corruption controls in South Africa due to a match-fixing scandal that has left cricket at one of its lowest ever points.

Organizers say the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit, a local security firm and ground officials will all be on alert when 10 teams compete for the title in the two-week tournament from Friday.

Three Indian Premier League teams, two T20 sides each from Australia and South Africa and the domestic champions from New Zealand, Sri Lanka and the West Indies will be aiming to lift the gloom from fixing allegations surrounding Pakistan's national team.
