Chris Cairns, speaking this evening at Auckland Airport, said he hadn't been aware of the allegations against him until today.

On why his name has been raised he said: "I'm unsure. With regards to what's happened I've said I've been through a very arduous process in England last year, that's on record, and I stand by that, and with regards to what's occurred now, I just like to reiterate the fact that I've spoken to no body from any of those anti-corruption or ICC."

Cairns said he had had no contact with any ICC investigators and "my heart sank'' when he found out about the allegations today.
