Accused Cairns must wait

Related

Chris Cairns could be waiting two weeks before he finds out if he's won his libel case.

The former cricketer's High Court hearing in London has wrapped up, after eight days of evidence.

On the final day of the hearing a court was told allegations of match fixing against Cairns are miles away from being proven.

Former Indian premier league Commissioner Lalit Modi's legal team has claimed the New Zealander was corrupt when he was contracted to the Indian cricket league and was sacked because of it. Cairns maintains his dismissal was because he failed to clear an ankle injury.

His lawyer told the court the extremely serious allegation against him is wholly untrue, and the evidence lacks coherence and consistency.
