I am pretty gutted to hear about the involvement of NZ cricketers in the match fixing scandal. Even worse is the fact Chris Cairns appears to be involved. Cairns was one of my favourites back in the day.
Fairly interesting timing as per the following article from 2008
Grame Hick joins ICL, will play for Chandigarh Lions - News Oneindia
However, Hick's inclusion has a shot in the arm for the Lions team as they are already a depleted side due to the suspension of their regular captain former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns and former India batsman Dinesh Mongia due to their alleged involvement in the match fixing.
Now Elly Riley's sworn testimony to the ICC has been leaked...this is just getting worse and worse for Cairns.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Though obviously if Cairns and Vincent have been involved in things like County Cricket and the CL20 it's a different story.
Perhaps the ICC feels no desire to interview Cairns - if he's not the top of the chain and he's publicly denying everything then he'd probably be a waste of time. What they want is whistle-blowers (or people they can get to fess up to save their own ass) and then the top of the tree. If Cairns was only a rung above Vincent he's not worth the effort for minimal return.
It's a little surreal following Cairns on twitter. He's posting quite regularly, interacting with others thanking them for their support and seems pretty chipper given the circumstances.
