He's been accused of spot fixing in matches in the Indian Premier League. Already before he's been through the English court with a big defamation case with the league's boss accused him on twitter, and Cairns won, but now he's been accused officially through the ICC channels. I don't know what to make of it. Two other kiwis have also been accused, Darryl Tuffey and one other I cannot recall.
Seems to be a growing problem in sport, with all the different ways you can now place a bet and what you can bet on. There was a young Essex cricketer called Mervyn Westfield who has only recently got out of prison, He was convicted of spot fixing, he was paid £6000 to concede 12 runs during an over.
Also there has been 9 i think professional footballers re arrested yesterday for spot fixing.
