A Realistic Point of View on Match Fixing

As cliched as it might sound and as much as we might want to deny it, most of us cricket lovers will admit that that the suspicion of fixing occasionally creeps up on us. Paul Condon, head of the Anti Corruption unit of ICC talks rather realistically about the threats. I found it refreshing that he accepts while it’s possible to deter fixing, it might be impossible to eradicate it completely. I found it equally surprizing to find that cricket is one of most fixed (and bet on) of all sport, including horse racing!

With Condon passing on the reigns, and other changes in ICC, one can only hope that whatever sanity that is left remains.
