New Delhi:

Former New Zealand cricketer Chris Cains' libel suit against sacked Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi will come up for hearing in the London High Court today.

Modi had alleged on his Twitter account in 2010 that he barred Cains from taking part in the tournament due to "his past record in match-fixing".

Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns' libel suit against deposed Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi will be heard in the High Court at London from March 5, New Zealand media reports.

Cairns will be represented by leading barrister Andrew Caldecott and the case will be heard by Justice Sir David Eady who presided over high-profile libel and privacy actions involving world motorsport boss Max Mosley and golfer Tiger Woods.
