Chris Cairns, the retired New Zealand international, has been confronted with allegations of corruption made by former team-mates on the second day of his defamation action against the former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi.

Cairns, who is suing Modi over a 2010 tweet that claimed the former all rounder was involved in match-fixing during his time in the rival Indian Cricket League, said that the accusations made him "angry" and "sad".

The High Court in London heard testimony from witness statements of several former players with the Chandigarh Lions, the team Cairns captained during his three seasons in the Twenty20 league.

The evidence provided in Modi's defence included a claim that Cairns asked a batsman to score "no more than 5 runs" in an innings, and instructed one bowler to bowl no-balls and another to bowl "loosely".

Cairns was also questioned about his work for a diamond trading company and the large sums of money he received from them prior to the third edition of the ICL.
