Relieved Cairns eyes post with NZ Cricket
Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns said he was keen to be involved with New Zealand Cricket (NZC) after winning his libel case against former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi.
The London High Court on Monday ordered Modi to pay the former NZ skipper 90,000 GBP in damages after Cairns sued Modi following the Indian businessman's post on Twitter message in 2010 that Cairns was released from Indian Cricket League side Chandigarh Lions on charges of match-fixing.
"By receiving this complete vindication, it means my past is preserved. I can now move on," Cairns was quoted as saying by TV3's Campbell Live. Meanwhile, Cairns' father Lance said his son had approached NZC to work with them in an official capacity.
