The judge had instructed the jury to treat Vincents testimony with caution due to his own history of corruption in cricket. The International Cricket Council (ICC) responded to the verdict with a brief statement, saying: “The ICC notes the decision of the jury finding Mr Chris Cairns not guilty and confirms its utmost respect for the process that has been followed. “The ICC and its anti-corruption unit will continue to work closely with and provide all possible support to players in order that the fight against corruption can be tackled effectively and collectively. The ICC will not make any further comment on this matter.” PTI AK PDS PMlast_img
