London: Former New Zealand cricket captain Chris Cairns' lawyers want the British lawyers to prosecute his former teammate Lou Vincent for match fixing.

Cairns' lawyer Rhory Robertson said in a statement that Vincent's activities were referred to Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) July 2 "with a view to his prosecution". Cairns is also under investigation from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for match fixing.

Cairns has also been investigated by the Metropolitan Police, who have passed on a file to the Crown Prosecution Service. He is being investigated over suspicions of perverting the course of justice in his libel trial he won against former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi in 2012, who had accused him of fixing.
