“I maintain I have nothing to hide and we remain totally committed to doing whatever it takes to prove that via whatever means necessary”

Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns has revealed that he met with detectives from Scotland Yard recently, but refused to disclose what the meeting was about.

Cairns told Fairfax NZ News that the meeting had taken place in New Zealand, but had to be cut short since the investigators had to return back to the United Kingdom.

Cairns has been fighting to clear his name after allegedly being indicted in a match-fixing scandal.

”I maintain I have nothing to hide and we remain totally committed to doing whatever it takes to prove that via whatever means necessary,” he said. ”I will therefore continue to liaise with them via my UK solicitors. I have not been arrested or charged.”

Cairns added that he will also be talking to the International Cricket Council (ICC) in the near future.

“The ICC had also arranged to interview me this week in New Zealand,” he said. ”Unfortunately that didn’t go ahead, as they requested it be deferred while the Metropolitan police inquiry is ongoing.”
