Chris Cairns

The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) have paid a compensation of $20,000 to the former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns over the fake fixing charges voiced by the board against him. Not just this as MCC has also issued a public apology to Cairns over the same matter.

It was in the month of June when MCC put up a video on youtube channel of Lords claiming Cairns to be guilty of match fixing. Soon after this, his advocate took an action against the club for making false claims. The video was later removed from youtube channel after being there for almost 11 hours.

Cairns was defamed in the year 2012 after the former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi accused him of match fixing. But he was acquitted by the jury of all charges in Southwark Crown Court in the year 2015.

Here are the excerpts from apology made by MCC “It is accepted that Mr. Cairns was successful in a libel action in 2012 when wrongly accused of match fixing. He was also acquitted by a jury of all charges in 2015, in which it was alleged he had committed perjury at the 2012 trial.

“The MCC apologises to Mr. Cairns for wrongly alleging in the video title that he was guilty of match fixing and withdraws the allegation completely”.
