More shocking revelations have emerged in the Chris Cairns' perjury trial, with former teammate Lou Vincent revealing that Carins ordered him to fix matches.

“I was under direct orders from Chris Cairns to get involved in fixing,” Vincent said at the trial.

Vincent also said that Cairns promised him $50,000 per game to underperform.

Former New Zealand captain Cairns, who is also accused of perverting the course of justice, denies the charges facing him.

The charges relate to a libel case that Cairns, 45, brought against Lalit Modi, the founder of the Indian Premier League (IPL), in March 2012.

Cairns successfully sued Modi for £1.4 million ($2.14 million) after being accused of match-fixing on Twitter in January 2010, but now faces allegations that he lied during the case.

Vincent, now retired, said he had rejected a request from Cairns to support his civil case against Modi because to do so “would have been a complete lie”.
