Chris Cairns, the former New Zealand all-rounder, has won his libel case against Lalit Modi and has been awarded damages of £90,000.
 
Modi was also ordered to pay costs which amounted to around £1.5 million by the judge who delivered his judgement last morning.

Neither Cairns nor Modi was present in court.

Cairns was suing the former IPL chairman in the UK's first Twitter libel case over a defamatory tweet sent in January 2010, in which Modi referred to Cairns' alleged involvement in match-fixing as the reason for barring him from the IPL auction.

Cairns brought the matter to court, saying the allegations threatened to reduce his cricketing achievements to "dust".
