Chris Cairns says he and his wife
Mel were spoken to when British and
New Zealand police representatives
investigating cricket corruption
allegations visited their home on

conversation was "light on agenda and

by the Metropolitan Police and the
International Cricket Council anti-

present last (Wednesday) night when

e 43-year-old said that to his
knowledge, investigators had not spoken
to his former wife, South Africa-based
Carin van den Berg.
e news comes as Cairns seeks new
legal counsel after the arrest of his
former lawyer Andrew Fitch-Holland in
London on suspicion of perverting the
course of justice in relation to a libel case
involving Cairns and the former boss of
the Indian Premier League Lalit Modi.
In 2009, Modi accused Cairns of
match- xing. Cairns won the case and
has repeatedly denied any wrong doing.
"I have had contact from the
(Metropolitan) police and the ICC and
I will be engaging with them further in
the coming days and weeks," Cairns said.
"I still don't have details re the nature
of the inquiry but I will be happy for the
authorities to resolve this once and for all.
"I am seeking legal counsel re the next
step. We're unsure how to get advice from
here. We'll look at options in the UK and
New Zealand. In light of everything
that's occurring I still don't know what we
(the police and ICC) are talking about."
It was revealed in December that
Cairns was one of three former New
by the ICC's
unit in relation to
suspicions of match-
and spot- xing
in more than one
country. e others
are Lou Vincent and
Daryl Tu ey.
e three played
together for the Chandigarh Lions in the
short-lived Indian Cricket League.
Vincent has con rmed he is co-
operating with the investigation and
Tu ey's last public utterance suggested
he was willing to help investigators if
Cairns said that since his last contact
with the media in early February he had
spoken regularly to Tu ey but was yet to
speak to Vincent. "Daryl and I are mates,
but he's got his own situation to deal with
here, which I'm not privy to."
Cairns said he had concerns about how
he would earn an income now payments
from Sky Television had ceased.
"From a nancial aspect it's stressful. I'd
like some light to be shone on where this
is going. I've got nothing to hide. I'll go
through whatever process is required, but
there's been a lack of process over four
Regarding Fitch-Holland's arrest,
Cairns said it would be inappropriate
to comment on someone else's legal
situation. "We need to respect the process
and keep an open mind to allow it to
play out. I haven't spoken to him (Fitch-
Holland). All I can do is reiterate how
complex these things are."
When asked speci cally if they have
o cers in New Zealand and Australia,
a Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We
cannot comment for operational reasons."
A New Zealand Cricket spokeswoman
said the governing body would comment
once it had a chance to gather more
information. --- APNZ
Alex Hales played the innings
of his life to inspire England to a
dramatic and unlikely six-wicket
victory over Sri Lanka in the World
e lanky 25-year-old smashed
six sixes and 11 fours in Chittagong
to make 116 not out o 64 balls,
becoming the rst England
batsman to score a Twenty20
international century and taking his
side to their target of 190 with four
balls to spare.
England's highest ever successful
Twenty20 run chase showcased a
stunning reminder of Hales's talent
after a poor run of form which
had left his place in the side under
e world's top-ranked Twenty20
batsman in September, Hales had
failed to pass fty in his last 10
England appearances before his
brutal assault on the much-vaunted
Sri Lankan attack in the Group
One Super 10 clash.
England, chasing 190 after a
shoddy performance in the eld,
lost two wickets in the rst over
but Hales did not panic, gaining
momentum with four textbook
strokes to the boundary as he
rebuilt the innings with Eoin
Morgan, also struggling for form
recently, started patiently at a run a
ball but he launched two big sixes
in the middle overs to give the
England chase momentum.
After 14 overs they were on 114
for two and it was at that moment
that Hales made his charge.
Targeting the spin bowling of
Ajantha Mendis, Hales launched
him three times over the leg-side
boundary and drilled the last ball
to the extra cover fence to give
England 25 runs from the over.
Hales smashed his fourth six over
cover in the 19th over o Nuwan
Kulasekara to get to three gures
and, after a brief but passionate
celebration, he carved the next ball
over mid-wicket to put England in
sight of their target.
With seven runs needed o
the nal over bowled by Angelo
Mathews, Ravi Bopara took one
o the rst delivery and Hales left
nothing to chance, clipping the
second ball sweetly over the mid-
wicket boundary to seal a famous
"It's a great win for us. We
weren't in good form coming
into this game," Hales said at the
"Centuries in this format do not
come along very often. A couple of
times in the 90s, I'm very pleased to
go over the line today."
Hales, who made 99 in a
Twenty20 international against
West Indies in 2012, was asked if it
was his best international innings.
"Without a shadow of doubt," he
England captain Stuart Broad,
de ated earlier in the evening
after an error-strewn elding
performance by his team which
included ve dropped catches, paid
tribute to Hales.
" at's a very special knock," he
"One of the best I've seen in an
England shirt to be honest. e run
rate we had, to keep up with that
and then to win it with a few balls
to spare is very special.
"It's certainly the best we've seen
this winter in an England shirt
because this was match-winning.
" e calmness he showed all
through and the skill he showed
to clear the ropes in the end, I
mean there's been some special
knocks... on the biggest stage in a
World Cup, in conditions a little
bit foreign to us, it's one of the best
knocks I've ever seen." --- Reuters
