New Delhi: While exchanging his thoughts with some of the country`s finest investigators at a CBI function to deliberate on corruption in sports in the backdrop of match fixing allegations in cricket, former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid on Tuesday expressed his concerns over the falling moral standards in sports.

“Modern sports are in serious risk of losing moral compass,” Dravid said on Tuesday.

Dravid was the skipper of Rajasthan Royals when the IPL-fixing controversy came to light. And three members of his team – S Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan, Ajit Chandila – were caught in the fixing saga.

The agency`s three-day international conference on "evolving common strategies to combat corruption and crime" started on Monday.

The conference of senior officers of anti-corruption and vigilance agencies in the country was first organised by CBI in 1961 with an aim to provide all the investigating agencies of the country engaged in the task of fighting corruption a common platform to share information, discuss issues of common interest and evolve strategies to combat corruption. This is the 20th Conference in this sequence.
