    Chris Cairns to be charged with perjury - Cricket - NZ Herald News

    Cricketing great Chris Cairns is to be charged by the Metropolitan Police for perjury.

    The Herald has learned from sources close to the investigation that Cairns will be invited to travel to London, where he will be officially charged. A spokesman for the Met Police said no statement would be made until that time occurs.

    Cairns has denied any wrongdoing and described match-fixing allegations against him as "despicable lies".

    Cairns' file has been with the Crown Prosecution Service since the Met Police, whose representatives have travelled to New Zealand several times over the past year, recently wrapped up their investigation.

    The perjury charge stems from a High Court libel trial in London when the former allrounder won damages of 90,000 and costs against Lalit Modi, the former boss of the Indian Premier League.

    Modi had tweeted that the reason Cairns had been expelled from the now-defunct Indian Cricket League was because of match-fixing.

    Cairns left the ICL's Chandigarh Lions in 2008, with the official reason given as an undeclared injury.

    Since then, allegations have surfaced that Cairns was involved in match-fixing with Chandigarh teammates Lou Vincent and Daryl Tuffey.

    Vincent has admitted his role and recently received 11 life bans from the England and Wales Cricket Board for fixing during limited overs games in county cricket.

    Cairns and Tuffey have consistently denied any wrongdoing. Tuffey provided a character statement for Cairns in his libel trial against Modi.

    Cairns' friend, lawyer Andrew Fitch-Holland - who gave evidence on his behalf at the 2012 trial - was arrested and bailed in March under suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

    The charges are the culmination of a story the Herald broke on December 5, when we revealed up to three former New Zealand internationals were being investigated by the ICC for allegations of match-fixing.

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    I joined the primary club very early in my playing career and regularly fulfilled its requirements so no one ever bothered to test my integrity in that way
