Chris Cairns gives evidence at his perjury trial

From Nine To Noon, 9:30 am on 4 November 2015

The defence has opened in Chris Cairns' London perjury trial today, and he has taken to the witness box. The 45 year old, former Black Caps all-rounder is charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice in relation to a 2012 libel case against former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi. Chris Cairns denies the charge - lying under oath, which carries up to seven years in jail. Fairfax's Kevin Norquay has been watching the trial at Southwark Crown Court in London.
