Brendon McCullum, current captain of the New Zealand cricket team says he will testify against former team mate and all-rounder Chris Cairns in a perjury trial in London as he feels it’s his duty to protect the game.

Brendon McCullum will be among the 12 leading cricketers who may be called to give evidence when the trial starts next October.

Cairns won 90000 pounds after he sued IPL founder Lalit Modi over accusation of match fixing. He was later charged with one pound of perjury in the case.

In a radio interview, on Saturday, McCullum said “I know it’s not ideal at all, but you’ve got to protect the game and we’re obligated to fulfill our obligations there”
