Islamabad:Cricketers could still be fixing matches in their individual capacity, fears InternationalCricket Council President Ehsani Mani while ruling out the possibility of teams being involved in it.

"I can say with confidence that now no match is fixed because we've taken strict measures to examine the entire performance of a team and in the given circumstances it is not possible to fix a match," Mani said during a press conference at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore yesterday.

"We have put in a lot of efforts to eliminate match fixing and we have gained success in it but the existence of match fixing by individuals cannot be denied," he said.

He said ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit was working to find ways to control it.

"We can't do it overnight, definitely it will take some time, the way our efforts are in eliminating fixing an entire match," he was quoted as saying by 'The News' today.

Mani also said an ICC committee was reviewing whether LBW and dismisals through catches should be decided by the third umpire as was done in Super Series in Australia earlier this year.
