London: Lord Paul Condon head of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) claimed on Wednesday that his team of match-fixing investigators are closing in on several new suspects.[an error occurred while processing this directive]The former head of London's police force told the Daily Mail that the ACU not only thwarted an attempt to fix the England vs Pakistan series earlier in the summer, but that they were trailing figures not yet linked with the scandal."One of the things we have done is to build up a lot of detailed intelligence and thanks to that we were able to frustrate what was a serious attempt to interfere with those matches," said Condon."We had people working simultaneously in London and India and used surveillance. I am completely confident that the series was clean. We are still working on other cases that at present are not in the public domain."There are individuals who are in our sights and they are not in any way linked to names that came out in India's CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) report."Last month Condon told both the English and their Pakistan counterparts that there was "a potential threat by known corruptors to influence the series between the two sides".
