The Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) is all set to organise a flash mob to protest against corruption in cricket. The campaign called “Say no to No- Balls” is a pre-event celebration of the DU marathon 2011 that is expected to take place in March. “There cannot be a better way of taking the fight against corruption from Delhi University Campus through the Streets of Delhi to the cricket stadiums across the country,” says Neetu Dabbas, secretary DUSU.

This flash mob will take place at India Gate and will see volunteers enact a scene depicting spot fixing. In this scene, a member will bowl a No ball while the others dance around with bats and cricket pads and shout the slogan, 'Play and run against corruption'.

"This is a way for the youth to show that they appreciate ICC’s clean up act against corruption. Everybody is aware of the recent cases of spot fixing and corruption charges against players and this time we hope that this is a corruption free world cup,” says Musharraf Ali Khan, organiser of the event.
