LONDON - New Zealand cricket great Chris Cairns appeared in a London court on Thursday to face a charge of perjury relating to a libel action he brought in England in 2012. Cairns won £90,000 ($146,000) after he sued former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi over a 2010 tweet accusing the all-rounder of match-fixing during his time in the now defunct Indian Cricket League. However, Cairns was charged with perjury last month and appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London on Thursday.–AFP
