vexxxboy: It seems to be the same player that Lou Vincent names in his testimony, a superstar who played on his ICL team and if you look who was on that team,   Cairns, Graeme Hick, Imran Farhat, Andrew Hall, Hamish Marshall, Tuffey, Matthew Elliot, Dinesh Mongia , only 1 name stands out. Chris Cairns . It also doesn't help that his lawyer is been investigated for perjury in his corruption trial.


Looks bad for Cairns but what about Tuffey some of his performances are pretty suspicious.

BTR:
KiwiNZ: For me it's who cares, the whole sport is corrupt as hell, I stopped watching it years ago.


+1, Cricket and golf bore me to death, would rather watch paint dry. 


I didn't stop because it bored me, I really like Cricket, but the modern game has been ruined by cheats and Prima donna's

Oh no player X is Darth Vader ..."Cairns maintained his innocence and insisted "dark forces" were at play".

haydos85: Everything points to Cairns..

A superstar player who played for Chandagarh Lions in 2008. Only superstar was Cairns

Links to Dubai...Cairns was trading diamonds in Dubai.

McCullum asked xx player how he gets his money back into NZ. Must be a kiwi? Also was a good friend of McCullums.

The accusations from IPL president Modi about Cairns fixing...People don't just make things like that up


Looks as if you are right:

Its odd, McCullum made no mention of Cairns publicly but Cairns has come out proclaiming his innocence. Whats that adage... "doth protest too much, me thinks"

nicnzl: My feeling is also Chris Cairns. 

He seems to be playing the Lance Armstrong defence over the last few years. Deny, deny, deny, sue, sue, sue! Yet the allegations keep on arising.


wow ... it was profound when i read this, but it's looking more and more like it!

Cheating is a fact of life in basically every elite/pro-sport, although match fixing seems more prevalent in certain sports and not others. Ditto with Prima Donna's.

I still watch the odd highlight reel - even for cricket.

I guess the real question is whether cheating spoils the game as a spectacle?

At the end of the day I view pro sport as simply entertainment...
