The charge relates to a 2012 libel action in the High Court in London in which Cairns, successfully sued Indian Premier League boss Lalit Modi.

Cairns has described claims he fixed matches as "absurd" and recently added that he would do "whatever it takes... to again prove his innocence".

He will attend a hearing at Westminster magistrates court on 2nd October.

Cairns was awarded 90,000 pounds in damages after allegations on Twitter that he was involved in match-fixing.
