Cairns vows to clear his name

Afp, Auckland

New Zealand legend Chris Cairns on Friday revealed two former Black Caps captains testified to a probe into his alleged match-fixing and said he was determined to clear his name.
Cairns returned to Auckland after travelling to London for interviews with anti-corruption authorities saying he now had a clearer picture of the "absurd, bizarre and scary" allegations against him.
"Each and every allegation against me that I have cheated at cricket or attempted to induce others to cheat at cricket is false," he told reporters at Auckland airport.
Current New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum and former batsman Lou Vincent have both told ICC investigators that a high-profile cricketer dubbed "Player X" approached them in 2008 to fix matches, according to leaked testimony from the pair.
