Ex-New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said he had a “moral obligation” to testify in court against former team-mate Chris Cairns.

Cairns was cleared of perjury and perverting the course of justice last November after an eight-week trial.

McCullum gave evidence accusing Cairns of twice asking him to fix matches.

Cairns said McCullum’s version of events was wrong and that he was “shocked” McCullum would accuse him of trying to recruit him to fix results.

Cairns, also a former New Zealand captain, was found not guilty on all charges by a jury.
