London: Sir Paul Condon, head of cricket's anti-corruption unit (ACU), revealed on Monday that match-fixing still exists on the international stage.Speaking at Lord's after the International Cricket Council (ICC) had accepted his report recommending ways to stamp out match-fixing, Condon said the game's reputation is still being tarnished by criminal activity."My own view is that things are still going on within matches," he said. "Sadly I do think events have been fixed in the last year. There are a small number of matches and a small number of players involved."Despite his claims, Condon said the ICC was getting closer to banishing match-fixing once and for all. "Very quickly we will have in place an infrastructure to disrupt people who are doing this," he said."I'm absolutely convinced that the ICC will do its utmost to rid this problem from cricket. The main event for me has always been to make sure cricket never has to face this again."I think we now have a better understanding than ever as to why this happened, where it happened, the extent of it, what was the nature of the corruption, how people got involved into it, whether it's still going on and how we can prevent it in the future."Clearly we are looking back as to what happened in the past. If we find evidence, we are placing it before the relevant authority."
