The former New Zealand captain, delivering the MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord's here on Monday, recalled his anger that the evidence he gave against Chris Cairns in a match fixing court case here last year was leaked prior to trial.
"How can the game's governing body expect players to cooperate with it when it is then responsible for leaking confidential statements to the media?" he said.
