DUBAI: ICC Chief Executive David Richardson has vowed to complete the ongoing investigation into corruption in cricket, centering on the testimonies of Lou Vincent and Brendon McCullum in weeks, ARY News has learnt.
The ICC Chief said that “We are at the end of the investigation. It is close to being finalised and I'm sure Chris Cairns will be spoken to and given an opportunity to put his side of the story.”
"Although part of it does involve a police investigation in the UK, which I can't really vouch for as to when that will be finalised, but certainly from our perspective the investigations are close to finality and hopefully we should be making announcements pretty soon", he added.
Former New Zealand’s all-rounder Chris Cairns has been travelling to London to be interviewed by police and possibly the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit.
In April, Cairns had confirmed he met with Scotland Yard investigators but refused to divulge the reasons for the meeting.
After it emerged that McCullum and Vincent, in their testimonies to the ACSU, said a 'Player X' had approached them with offers to fix games, Cairns issued a statement denying all allegations relating to the case.
