The investigation into the match fixing fiasco that has gripped world cricket is reportedly entering its final stages, even as former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns was to fly to London to be interviewed by police.


Cairns has vehemently denied any involvement in corruption but believes he is the person alleged to be 'Player X'- the match-fixing ringleader mentioned by former teammates, ex-batsman Lou Vincent and current captain Brendon McCullum.

According to Sport24, International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Dave Richardson said that he believes the anti-corruption investigators are not far from interviewing Cairns and the inquiry would be wrapped up in a matter of weeks.

Meanwhile, Cairns' lawyer has confirmed that the former international was heading to England on Saturday to be interviewed.

Details of the investigation into match and spot-fixing of cricket matches in several countries, as well as the role of Player X, have emerged in a series of leaked documents in recent weeks.

Much of the evidence came from former New Zealand international Vincent, who already faces several charges along with Pakistani paceman Naveed Arif, the report added.
