Sydney: Retired Test cricketer Tim May has said that it is unfortunate how a few New Zealand cricketers got implicated in a match-fixing investigation this week when no charges had actually been laid but that corruption remained the single greatest danger to the game of cricket.

According to News.com.au, May said that he understands how difficult it is to nail somebody, to bring them to court and have a reasonable chance of success but the pursuit has to be zealous.

Cricket can do a lot more in the general governance of the game to ensure shady characters neither own or administrate within the game, he said.

He added that corruption is not just confined to players out on the field.

May also said that there is something special about Test cricket and it will always survive where it is ingrained in the tradition of Australia, England, South Africa and, to a lesser extent, India.
