Cairns hopeful of concluding 'much-awaited' interview with Brit police this week
Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns, who has strongly maintained his innocence in the ongoing corruption investigation by the International Cricket Council (ICC), is reportedly hopeful of concluding his much-awaited interview with the British Police this week regarding their investigation into allegations of corruption.
Cairns flew out of Auckland on Saturday for what his lawyer Aaron Llyod has said that it was for a meeting with the Metropolitan police, which the former cricketer had started.
According to Stuff.co.nz, Cairns had met with the British police, who had traveled to New Zealand in April, and said at that time that his interview had been cut short because they had to return to the UK.
Lloyd said that Cairns is also hoping to meet with the ICC Anti-Corruption unit (ACSU) during his time in London this week, because while issuing strong denials of any involvement in match fixing, the former all-rounder had also bemoaned that the ICC had not contacted him at all.
The reason behind ICC not approaching Cairns, as the former cricketer had acknowledged last month, is that a police investigation has taken precedence and the ACSU are waiting for that to be completed, the report added.
