Cairns still seeking answers after successful court case

8:44 am on 17 April 2012

The former New Zealand cricketer Chris Cairns is still seeking answers despite his successful defamation case against the former Indian premier league cricket commissioner Lalit Modi.

Cairns was awarded 170,000 dollars in damages from Modi who used the social media forum Twitter to accuse Cairns of match fixing in the premier league in 2008.

Cairns says the case to clear his name was something he'd rather have avoided, and the most frustrating aspect was that Modi didn't take the stand to answer why he said what he said.
