Reports Cairns won't face charges in Britain

It's being reported that the former New Zealand cricketer Chris Cairns won't face any match-fixing charges by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

On Thursday the ECB handed a life ban to Naved Arif, the former Sussex all-rounder.

Last month Cairns met with the Metropolitan police, the ECB and the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption unit as he continued to deny any involvement in match fixing.

Cairns was accused by his former New Zealand team-mate Lou Vincent of inciting him to fix matches while both were playing county cricket.

However the Telegraph newspaper is reporting that Cairns won't face any charges in Britain.
