Condon report released, fixing rife since '70s
ICC to discuss 'fix' report next month
"There's not much new information there. It has words like murder, kidnapping and drugs and things which you don't like to hear about the game of cricket," he said. "(But) it was just the same stuff that I've probably heard for the past four or five years." He hoped the corruption scandals enveloping cricket would not lead to players being isolated from the fans as happens to tennis stars, who were constantly shielded from the fans. "Cricket has always been a game for the public," Taylor said. "I don't want to see players locked up in hotel rooms, ushered straight onto buses or in limousines, taken away from the venue (and have) no mixing with the public ... and dare I say it - they become a bit more like tennis players."
