Cairns speaks to the police.
Former New Zealand cricketer Chris Cairns has continued to insist that match-fixing allegations leveled against him are all false.
The Kiwi all-rounder recently returned to his home in Auckland after being questioned by the Police and the ICC in England and had revealed that there were no charges leveled against him, as there was no direct evidence pointing towards his misdoings.
Cairns’ former teammate Lou Vincent and current New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum both gave against him.
“Based on the information I was provided in London, I now understand that there were two past players and one current New Zealand player who Mr McCullum said he spoke to about the alleged approach,” Cairns was quoted by ESPNCricinfo.
“Two of these men made statements supporting Mr McCullum’s claim that he spoke to them. The third man told investigators his memory was foggy and he could not make a statement in support of Mr McCullum.”
Cairns has long been an accused in match-fixing probes, but insists that he has nothing to hide and that he was not involved in any cheating.
Speaking to the media after his return from England, the 43-year old made another authoritative statement clarifying that he had nothing to do with any match-fixing incident in the past and Lou Vincent – who had explicitly reported Cairns’ name to the authorities – was merely playing a blame game.
