Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle made a stunning revelation on Tuesday saying that match-fixing is a happening phenomenon in cricket world even today.

In an interview to CNN-IBN, he said, “I have been to a few cricket matches and I have looked at it and said ‘oops what s happening here . I remember telling myself one day that don t look at the match from that angle, a cricket lover in you will die.”

Bhogle’s reaction comes after the tainted Pakistani trio Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer were proven guilty on Tuesday of spot-fixing during the Test match against England in 2010, in London court.

“That s a naive way of looking at it but we all have been to cricket matches and felt this doesn t look right..but around the world it s still happening. I m absolutely sure it s happening but I don t have evidence,” added Bhogle.
