New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum alleged former player Chris Cairns for offering him money to get involved in spot fixing three times.
The former Kiwi player and a childhood idol for McCullum became his worst nightmare. The Kiwi captain gave the details of his meetings with Cairns on two separate occasions in front of the court.
McCullum told the judge that Cairns first met him in Kolkata in 2008, IPL. As per McCullum, he and former Australian captain Ricky Ponting were enjoying their drinks in their leisure time when Cairns made a call to him.
Cairns sent McCullum a car to pick him to his hotel. Inside the room Cairns offered him a huge sum of money for spot fixing.
Cairns also drew a through diagram on paper to illustrate how it all works, McCullum told the judge. He further added that Cairns told him that Lou Vincent and Daryl Tuffey were also working with him.
McCullum refused straight away and later during the tour to England, he was contacted again by Cairns. McCullum rejected the offer once again and started thinking about reporting the issue to the authorities.
McCullum remained silent for two and a half years and then finally decided to go against his favorite whom he once idolized in cricket.
